SHOTOPOP is a devout team of visual zealots who pride ourselves on conjuring the new, the unimagined and the fantastical. In our offices, furiously snipping silver scissors give birth to a thousand paper feathers, crazy caffeine dreams turn into flashing pixel rainbows and the most ambitious flights of fancy, become our proudest moments.
