When looking at design companies last year I remember one website in particular that stood out for me.
Peepshow are a collective of ten illustrators, designers and animators based in London. Working mainly within art direction, advertising, editorial, illustration, moving image, fashion, textile and set design. Their site itself is creatively engaging and showcases their work without the use of extensive levels of flash and animation. It's great to see a company of this size that specialises in such an array of design disciplines.
