Rob van Hoesel (1974) studied graphic design at AKV St.Joost in Breda (NL), graduated in 2002. He worked at design studio Kummer & Herrman in Utrecht for

4 years and started the studio by the end of 2005. In 2011 he started an independent publishing house called The Eriskay Connection.


We are mainly working on book design and editorial projects besides cultural identities and print campaigns.


We are specifically interested in projects that map a relevant matter, provide insight into the world we live in, tell a story, make a statement, expose a history or give directions to our view on the future.

And we love art projects that flirt with science...
