Angie Smets, lead producer at Guerrilla Games: “Our wish to document 15 years of Killzone visual design was taken up by Arjan and Maarten Brands of Cook & Becker, who took our image archive and a wealth of designer stories to build a book that does much more than show selected imagery; it truly documents the coming-of-age of our studio. “
