MOO’s having an Egg Hunt!

February 2008, by Denise | 3 Comments – latest by Carla

(Warning – will contain fun, clues and prizes.)

We are *most* excited at MOO Towers. Monday 3rd March is the launch of our MOO Egg Hunt and we are busy working with a wonderful man called Corvus – an awesome clue writer.

He’s had us scratching our heads, pooling our resources, searching the internet and wracking our brains, as we try and crack his clues. (And umm – we’re the people that know where the eggs are.) The clues are cryptic and fun – the kind that are mind-bogglingly complicated on the one hand, but oh-so obvious when you’ve worked it all out.

The Egg Hunt is going to be great fun – and more than that, there are over …Continue reading this article…

How to make friends and wave at people

February 2008, by Denise | 3 Comments – latest by Malinki

One of the cool things about MOO products is that you can hand them to new people to introduce yourself, and you have the immediate potential of making new friends. Making new friends is nice. New friends make you smile – sometimes they even make you laugh. (Occasionally they send you sweets… not that I’m hinting or anything.)

For quite some time we in the MOO office have wondered exactly who it is that works over the road from us. Their office kind of looks into ours, and we can see enough of theirs to know they have a huge map on the wall. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just reach over, hand them a MiniCard and say ‘Hi! …Continue reading this article…

Sticking it to the man

February 2008, by Denise | 7 Comments – latest by duy0nline

Or the Oyster, anyway. Not long ago, Meg Pickard, MOO friend, inventor of the anti-valentine card – and the MOOgnetblogged about her Stickers, and the fact they’re the perfect size for an ‘Oyster’ card holder.

For the un-initiated, ‘Oysters’ are a London thing. No, it’s not a deep-seated love of expensive bivalve mollusks, merely the the crazy-spectacular name for bus/train pass, available from London Transport.

(Personally, I think they called it that because they planned it to go in a holder like this and they think that opening up the ‘shell like’ holder reveals the ‘pearl’ of a card inside. What do you think? Have I over thought this? Have you ever travelled in London? …Continue reading this article…

Lovers n’ leavers (and a quick SXSW reminder)

February 2008, by Denise | 6 Comments – latest by Denise

The arrival of a pack of MiniCards means different things to different people. For some, they’re new business cards to put in your pocket or bag. You whip them out when you need them, to remind people who you are and how to find you. These are a nice example, by twofivethreetwo:

For others, it’s a Valentine gift, like these. by The Warrior Design

or a wedding favour, like these, by Roger. (Who’s just started working at MOO! Welcome!)

Cris Rose uses them as a Mini-portfolio, for his custom toy designs…

And many other people use them as tags or thank-you notes to put in with their Etsy Sales. These are …Continue reading this article…

MOO loves you (even if we are fashionably late)

February 2008, by Denise | Add a comment

Eeek. We’re a bit late to wish you Happy Valentine’s Day in Europe, but don’t think that’s because we don’t care. We do. We’ve just been busy wading through all the piles of roses, chocolates and flowers delivered to the office… you know how it is. We’re such a good looking bunch it’s hard for people not to fall in love with us, really.

But enough about us, and more about you. Our designers have a few things they’d like to get off their chests…

In the grand scheme of things, and scientifically speaking, you’ve definitely achieved rock star status in our eyes. Yep, you really are more ‘B’ than ‘A’…

…So much so, you should probably …Continue reading this article…

How to Build a Web Start-up

February 2008, by Denise | 1 Comment – latest by Donna Charles

A lot of hard work, a lot of late nights, and quite a few take-away dinners… but you knew that already, right?

Ryan Carson has made video with a few more useful tips – and includes MOO in the mix, which certainly brightened our day. As a (slightly ageing) web start-up ourselves, it was nice to know we can help other people out along the way.

Cool running (all the way to the London Marathon)

February 2008, by Denise | 7 Comments – latest by Denise

MOO customers are people of many talents. Today, we salute those with aching legs, steely reserve, and warm clothing. Yes, we’re talking about the people in training for The London Marathon. (You need steely reserve and warm clothing to train in the not-so-sunny British weather. It’s freezing out there.)

The London Marathon raises millions of pounds for charity every year. Runners are actively encouraged to run in support of a charity, which really means getting people to sponsor you by any means necessary. Just Giving have taken a lot of the hassle out of this for people in the UK in recent years, by providing a simple way to enable friends to sponsor you online. You get a …Continue reading this article…
