I’m Lars Mensel and here I collect things I find interesting or bewildering.


I keep busy with a variety of ongoing projects:

  1. I’m a partner at studio~humm, an independent brand design studio in Berlin.
  2. On my Journal and on Medium I write about photography, visual culture, and technology.
  3. I post pictures on the outdated but charming photo-sharing site Flickr.
  4. Available Light is my project exploring the culture, history, and madness of photography.


I have worked as an editor at the magazine The European (now defunct), as a content strategist at the photography company EyeEm and at IBM iX, authored two books of the Startup Guide series, and created the magazine The Idea List.
