Madonna, could you hold these for me?

March 2008, by Denise | 8 Comments – latest by Martin Lindeskog

It’s awfully glamorous working at MOO, as I’m sure you can imagine. Based in the heart of the up-and-come ‘East End’ of London, we’re working in a place steeped in history, industry and creativity. The oldest printing company in the country is just around the corner. The first magazine in England was published about 5 minutes from here and Charles Dickens set the scene for much of ‘Oliver’, on the Green around the corner. If that wasn’t enough, Madonna and Alexander McQueen have been spotted hanging out in the very market where the MOO Crew buy their lunch.

Look, it’s Madonna, hanging.

Yep, the glamour never stops. Or, that’s what we tell ourselves when faced …Continue reading this article…

March 2008, by Denise | 9 Comments – latest by Deborah Hilton

Yes, after all this time, our very own, custom designed MiniCard holders are in stock and available to buy! Forgive me for sounding over-excited, but really, we’ve waited so long for these, we’re like Children at Christmas now they’re here.

They’re specially designed for MOO, by Steven Jones, and hold up to 15 cards. You can slide them open with your thumb, and there’s a special ramp inside to help the cards come out easily.

They’re designed to be opened and dispense cards with one hand, so you can hold a drink in the other, and not spill it on the oh-so-important person you’ve just met. “My Card” – you can say, with a slightly raised, James Bond eyebrow, …Continue reading this article…

Thursday Afternoon – More clues and a Mini Update

March 2008, by Alicia | 19 Comments – latest by Yolande

Good afternoon everyone. Before we crack on with this afternoon’s two clues, I thought I’d update you on what happened with the MOO MiniCard banner for the People Powered SXSW party. You may remember that a couple of weeks ago, we invited everyone to submit cards and images to the banner….

Sadly, the MOO Crew who went to the party were so drunk busy, that they forgot to take any photos of the banner. However, we did take a little photo of all the nice packets that came through the mail. (See if you can spot yours?)

So thank you very much for contributing. Now, enough about the party, let’s get on with …Continue reading this article…

In fact, there are still whole cities where not a single egg has been found, so if you’re the first you’re guaranteed to win a great prize! The undiscovered eggs are in Montreal, Niagara Falls, St. Catharines and Salmon Arm, …Continue reading this article…
