Peepshow was founded in 2000 by graduates of the University of Brighton to facilitate self promotion, share clients and collaborate. Since then, as a collective and as individuals, they have worked extensively within the areas of illustration, advertising, art direction, moving image, set design, mixed media installation and fashion and textile design.
As illustrators they have frequently appeared in publications such as The Guardian, The Observer, The Telegraph and The New York Times and their work regularly features in Creative Review, Design Week and Varoom. They have been asked to contribute to many books on the subject of illustration including Pen & Mouse, Illusive, The Fundamentals of Illustration, Picture Book and Hand To Eye. Collectively Peepshow's moving image work has been featured at 'onedotzero: adventures in motion' at the ICA, 'Counter:Vision' at The Hayward Gallery and as part of 'Pictoplasma' in New York as well as appearing on channels such as the BBC, Channel 4 and MTV. With this eclectic approach, different experiences and individual skills they offer a unique and exciting approach to ideas and imagery.
