Bring me sunshine

24th May 2008 by Denise

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 a quick drink on the roof terrace:

The ‘roof terrace’ in our new office is proving quite a hit. It has to be said, at the moment it’s more ‘roof’ than ‘terrace’, but it’s a real treat to have our own outside space. We’ve been lucky to have some sunny London days recently, so in these busy times when the going gets tough, the tough get going – outside:

Oddly, two out of four people in this shot aren’t actually working, and 50% are drinking beer, but it’s a freak shot, not really the norm – honest.

But enough about us – more about you. These are some lovely things we’ve spotted you making recently:

A beautiful little bookmark, for Mother’s Day, by S h e l l y. Made using a MiniCard.

Magnets! Cleverly made by tanisalexis, from Stickers and salvaged industrial magnetic tape. (Why don’t I ever find anything that cool?)

These really cute MiniCards and Postcards by Penguin & Fish

And I also love this great shot by _Haru88

Have a great weekend, everyone!

    Hi there Sid, Guten Tag. Nice to meet you.

    Your office looks great – would love to work there!

    And I’m just here to grab some quick ideas on what to do with your moo stickers :) Oh, and just a comment regarding your shopping basket – it will be helpful if it can be a semi-permanent thing (cookies, whatever they are called), ie when I log off after spending 3 hours working meticulously on some of my stickers, I would’ve wanted to continue doing it the next day but lo and behold… It was gone the next day when I restart my laptop again the next day. *boohoo*

    I have a friend who ordered a photo minibook from a well known photographic company (beginning with K!) the booklet was a fun gift but the quality was awful.

    I recently ordered some minimoocards from you and I am delighted with them. Could you provide a service for minibooks? they were about 5×6.



  3. Denise:

    @Tsu Lin – Thank you for making Sid feel so welcome :)
    And thank you also for your comments – they have been passed on. It’s something that gets discussed quite a lot, so it’s great to have more feedback.

    @Vicky – sorry to hear your friends book didn’t turn out so well, but on the plus side, I’m really happy to hear your cards look so good.

    We’re always thinking about new products to make, and we do listen to all the feedback we get. We’ve got another product in the pipeline right now – which is why we’ve been so busy recently. This product wont be a book, but we’d certainly never say ‘never’ to the idea :)

    Thank-you so much for featuring my MiniCard bookmark!

    Looks great to work on the roof!
