bzzzpeek.com is presenting a collection of “onomatopoeia” from around the world using sound recordings from native speakers imitating the sounds of mainly animals and vehicles. This selfinitiated project by London-based design studio FL@33 focuses on the pronunciation and comparison of these sounds by presenting them side by side as each language expresses them differently.

bzzzpeek.com is an interactive experience inviting everybody to contribute. Submissions of additional recordings representing missing languages are more than welcome. Concept generation and design have been developed with a family experience in mind. The menu is easy to use and is based on a mainly visual approach to invite a truly international audience to interact. Our audience is mainly families, teachers / educational institutions, designers / artists and musicians / sound artists.

Since its launch in September 2002 bzzzpeek.com has been awarded the Distinctive Merit Award by the Art Directors Club New York (ADCNY) and has been site of the day, week and/or month in hundreds of publications and websites such as howdesign.com, yahoo.com, usatoday.com, Time-Out New York, Parisian Radio Nova, amongst others.
