We all had a good discussion in this office today about this website, circulated by Claudia Moeller, a colleague and art editor. It is around a year old but is part of a bigger conversation as to what makes a well designed website – as I wrote about in an earlier, ever-popular posting “what should a well designed website look like, part I”.
So what does it do well and what does it do badly. Here is the homepage.
It is great that it is so unusual looking, so a big tick there. But also some problems. There is little to indicate what Peepshow actually is (I still don’t quite know. I think it is a collective of graphic, web and clothes designers who have been at London’s St Martin’s Design College). News is also listed chronologically in a scroll down box but, again, you have to work it out. Next step, enter the site.
So we liked it, or elements of the design, but are quite clear as to its shortcomings.
