London was typically wet and windy last week, but it all rather added to the mysterious nature of an outing to Lost Lectures latest event, ‘Lost on Trial’, held at the secretive location of Hornsley Town Hall, in London’s Crouch End. Here is my review from the evening.
In a crowded marketplace it’s essential that your business stands out from a very crowded marketplace. We’ve heard this all before right? And while it’s an undeniable fact of business and advice one should follow, what would the concept of ‘standing out’ actually look like? Well that was the brief our creative team received when preparing our latest advertising campaign.
We spoke to Jack Newman, one of MOO’s Lead Graphic Designers and asked him to share a little insight about working on the campaign and the process of creating designs that aren’t afraid of being different.
What do you do at MOO?
I work in the creative team and look after a small team of designers, art-workers …Continue reading this article…

You’re sat staring at your Excel spreadsheet, counting the number of cells on the page before you tab out to give Solitaire another whirl. As we know, feeling unfulfilled in what you do isn’t a great feeling. So why not turn it around? That’s exactly what Omarseeto, founder of Birties, thought. After a surprise termination at work, he was finally able to invest himself in starting his own pop culture-laden bow tie brand.
Building a niche brand from the ground up is no mean feat. We grabbed Omar to wrap our heads around his inspiring story.
Tell us a little about yourself, where you live, what makes you tick?
My birth name is Omar, but most of …Continue reading this article…
Standing out is something that a lot of people struggle with, but it’s crucial for lots of things like getting a job, hailing a taxi or even finding the love of your life. You see people getting it wrong, but how do you get it right? How do you ‘big yourself up’ without coming across like… that guy? How does one “eat the frog?” Don’t worry, that’ll make sense later.
When I say “art” and “Shoreditch”, what do you picture? Kids with their hoodies on backwards spray painting anti-capitalist sentiments on new build properties? I thought so.
A turn out that stereotype doesn’t ring true for most of our creative bedfellows here in East London. With Digital Shoreditch just around the corner, we wanted to hear from the genuine folk who are painting themselves out of the corners and into the conferences.
We grabbed Lead Graphic Designer at MOO, Millie Davies, to discuss all things pen, iPad and paper.
How did you get involved in design?
My dad was a product designer so I was always around the design world. I took Design and Technology at school …Continue reading this article…
So you’ve graduated. Now the existential crisis shall begin. Where are you going to go? What are you going to do? What do you want to do? How will your enrolment in Lady Gaga Studies help you in the real world? Why didn’t you apply for those grad schemes instead of watching The Lord of the Rings back to back?
Apart from those times when you run for and make it into the elevator just before the doors close, there are very few things at work that get the adrenaline pumping quite like delivering a presentation. But unlike the elevator scenario, where a well-timed sprint will (usually) do, there’s a little more to think about if you want to ace your presentation.
Picture yourself in Shoreditch. You’ve got a man-bun, a beard so long that it connects with your armpits, and enough opinions about coffee to give Nescafe a run for their money. That’s one side of it. The other is the bustling creativity of both the design and tech sector. Whilst uninventive names like ‘Silicon Roundabout’ may suggest merely an attempt to remain ‘hip’, Shoreditch (the home of MOO) harbours many of the folk who are set to take Britain to dizzying new heights.
One of those is Keri Lambden, an Experience Designer at MOO. She’s giving a talk at Digital Shoreditch this coming week, so we picked her brains about what it is she does, and what it is she’s going to say.
With the gathering of the electronic wizards (aka Digital Shoreditch) taking place over the next two weeks, we caught up with Brad Shuttleworth, MOO’s Director of Creation Software to see how tech and print are syncing both today and beyond.
