Collision by Melville Creative Director Lars Harmsen is the impact of intuition and the human experience. A visual journey of photographs, design, and ideas. With this publication, the author mercilessly settles accounts with the last 10 years of his creative work. Numerous pieces and creations, from Slanted, Melville, PosterRex and 100FOR10 to freelance works and other projects have been destroyed, cut up and reassembled. A maximum of carnage. With a minimum of diplomacy.
Raban Ruddigkeit wrote about the work: “A year ago Lars bought a boat. He has actually been sailing all his life. He sails as a designer over the trends and hypes, over the egos and the shooters. In his work he connects drops to water and waves to a sea. Now and then he expresses himself in his own graphic language. Especially when, as today, the sea becomes rougher and more uncomfortable. Then Lars brings out his unwavering compass — a true sailor only proves himself in the storm.”
