Feeling a little drawn

May 2008, by Denise | 6 Comments – latest by José

We’ve got some great designers on MOO, and it has to be said, we don’t talk about them enough. Their work is vast and varied, ranging from the cute, to the scientific, the sarcastic and the scary.

Whilst browsing around our Flickr pool I spotted this great photo:

It’s by MOO designer Andrea Joseph. She’s been ordering a few of her own Ready Made packs, and photographing the printed artwork next to the original subject of the illustration. Look at this one too:

And some of the pens she works with:

The above MiniCards are all available as individual images – so you can mix and match with …Continue reading this article…

Bring me sunshine

May 2008, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by Katrine K

It’s been a really busy week at MOO towers, hence the slight lack of blog updates. Since the launch of the new-look Ready Made last week, we’ve all been heads down working on our latest Thing, which of course, we can’t talk about. But rest assured, it’s all good, and when we can tell you more, we will do.

We have one new addition to the team this week! Meet Sid:

He’s our latest front-end developer. Quite experienced, he can also speak French and German, so he’s helping out on any little localisation issues. He does talk a lot, but is always ready with good advice – you can see him helping Nicky here, while they grab …Continue reading this article…

Spring cleaning, and a bit of sparkle

May 2008, by Denise | 1 Comment – latest by Steve

Did you notice we’ve changed a bit? We’ve got a bit wider, got a snazzy new homepage (featuring some great photos from our fantastic customers) and best of all, we’ve made it easier to browse about and go shopping!

Yes, we’ve given Ready Made a bit of a facelift, which means it’s now much easier to view designer packs of cards or stickers and treat yourself (or your friends) to something really special.

(Like these colourful NoteCards, from Kevin Meredith

or these retro pattern MiniCards, by Rachel Cave)

If you’ve never seen MOO Ready Made at all before, we will forgive you – it was a bit hidden. Basically, it’s packs of cards or …Continue reading this article…

New home, new homies

May 2008, by Denise | 9 Comments – latest by Georgi

We’ve moved! Not that far away from our previous office, but far enough to require a full investigation into local pubs and sandwich shops. I’ll keep you posted if we find anything spectacular. Our previous office was very nice – host to a lot of food…

a lot of birthdays…

Some sad times…

And some happier times…

We packed MiniCard Holders there:

We locked our CTO in the cupboard and refused to let him out,

All in all, we worked really hard.

But now, on to bigger and better things! Look at all this space:

It’s quite overwhelming…

Luckily we have tanks, to help with our global domination plan:…Continue reading this article…

We’re trying to learn your language…

May 2008, by Denise | 10 Comments – latest by Yana

As some of you might’ve already spotted, we’ve ‘localised’! What does that mean? Well, it means MOO is now available in more than one language. Since launch, MOO has shipped to countries all over the world, and little-by-little we’ve been learning, so we can speak to you in your own language too.

So far, MOO has been translated into French, Italian, Spanish and German. If your browser is already set for one of these languages, it should automatically appear in the language of your choice. If it’s not, you can switch languages by clicking the links at the bottom of every page.

As I’ve already mentioned, we are still learning, so if you spot something a bit odd …Continue reading this article…

You did it!

May 2008, by Denise | 10 Comments – latest by Denise

Thanks so much to everyone who voted for MOO in the People’s Voice Webby Awards! We’re very pleased to announce that with your help, we won the People’s Voice vote in the ‘Services’ category. It means a lot to us, because – panels aside – it’s actually you (the people) we’re doing this for.

So, champagne all round! Or in our case, at 10 in the morning in London, a cup of tea. We might even go crazy and grab ourselves a biscuit too! Cheers!

The Winners of MOO’s Sticker Design Competition

May 2008, by Alicia | 5 Comments – latest by Angela Ling

A few weeks ago we invited you all to take part in our Sticker Design Competition. And you did, and how! We had over 600 designs submitted to the competition over at Pixish, including designs, illustration, photographs and mixed media images.

From the funny to the beautiful to the downright odd, we were delighted with the entries and had a tough time whittling down the list to our top 90 images. But we did, and we’ll soon be selling a limited edition StickerBook with the winning designs. (Check back next week for an ‘on sale now’ announcement on the blog.)

The Grand Prize winner is Ines Maldonado with her ‘moustache’ design. Ines …Continue reading this article…

Happy days and holidays

May 2008, by Denise | 4 Comments – latest by Denise

Thanks to everyone who responded to our slightly desperate plea to vote for MOO in the Webbys! The official winners will be announced on Tuesday, so we shall wait the results with bated breath.

While we wait for that, you have the winners of our ‘design a laptop sticker’ competition to look forward to! There’s been over 600 entries and trying to narrow that down to the best 90 has been really hard. Some entries made us laugh, others got a slight look of confusion, and many more got an ‘awww!’ All will be revealed on Tuesday – thank you very much to everyone who took part.

This week has been really busy in the office …Continue reading this article…
