Janneke de Rooij uses graphic design as a medium to question stereotypical views. In her projects she involves the public through workshops and social interventions in search of alternative ideas about current social issues. The commisioned work of her studio Ohyescoolgreat focuses on bringing all different ideas and messages into a strong graphic statement. In 2014 she started teaching Design and Exploration at the Willem de Kooning Academy.
