New friends in far away places

15th November 2007 by Denise

As you might know, the MOO crew are an active bunch online. A lot of us have our own blogs or little side projects, and all of us have our photos on photosharing sites, like Flickr. We’re also interested in where the web is going, and what might happen in the future – which is why Kim, one of our product managers, happened to go to the iCommons Summit in Dubrovnik, a little while ago.

Despite the fact it was classed as a ‘holiday’ from work, when Kim met Chiaki she couldn’t help but talk about MOO. Chiaki is the CEO for Loftwork, one of the biggest creative networks in Japan. Loftwork provides a community and support for over 8500 illustrators, and helps young designers to protect their work using Creative Commons licensing.

Lots of long conversations later, we’re happy to be able to say some of these young artists are now making their work available via the designers section on MOO.

Have a browse around the site, because the content is getting bigger by the day. We’ve introduced a search option to help you find the kind of images you might like, but here’s a few of the Loftwork illustrations to whet your appetite.

‘Sweet Dessert’, by Feebee

‘A kitten and a ball’, by the very cute Mina Kawai

‘Yokogao’ by Kosuke Ikeda

Do take time to browse around though – because Kim has been working overtime! There’s lots of other new designers we’re working with too – from the gentle drawings of Andrea Joseph

…to the colourful chaos of Colin Johnson

…to the madness of Adam ‘Apelad’ Koford. What more can I say?

    Cute designs.

    I am having problems ordering stickers of them, though. I have signed into moo and am at the checkout stage. I have selected paypal but clicking on the paypal button does not do anything.

    Also, now I cannot empty my basket…

    Hey Natalie,

    There was a problem with Paypal over the weekend; it should all be working fine now.

    If you have problems, please drop a line to our customer services team – we can fix things faster if you let them know about any problems you hit.

    You can reach the Customer Service Dans (they’re all called Dan, for some reason…) at

    would like to make an email friend from some place far from u.s. and share our cultures.
