Default Arrangement of Showreels

I'm just wondering, how do you guys arrange the work in your showreels.

Do you mix all your material up (having various shots from a project cut and mixed with all the other material, so you get to see clips from that project throughout the reel), or do you keep things in project order?

I like the idea of mixing the clips to keep people wanting more of something and to show variety, but if some of the material is vastly different, say a cartoon styled character animation followed by a realistic animation, or animation integrated into live action then wouldn't the jump in style seem quite drastic? Maybe that would go into your favour?

Any thoughts?
