Question 9 in our cryptic quiz: ‘Three Is The Magic Number’

September 2009, by Denise | 19 Comments – latest by Brian Golbere

Here we are with the last question of our third day! Appropriately, we’re back in The Third Zone, with our young design heroes, Rod, Grant and Blaise. Everything is not as it seems…

The Third Zone
The Third Block

Each youth makes their way into the city, amazed at the sites they see. Each block they pass offers something new, something beautiful, or something odd. It is to their credit that they actually take the time to notice these little details about life… in the Third Zone.

On the first block, they each notice a bird—sitting in silhouette. Rod, naturally, sees a bright red cardinal perched on a bench of deco design . Grant spies a green tit, and Blaise notices an unusual …Continue reading this article…

Question 8 in our cryptic quiz: ‘Three Is The Magic Number’

September 2009, by Denise | 17 Comments – latest by Janet

Moving swiftly on, we catch up with our photographer friends, who are struggling with a difficult new client. After completing yesterday’s task and identifying three MOO employees, Goldilocks wants to know about their influences. Will her demands never end?

Unbearable Lightness of Being
Part three

The next challenge Goldilocks set for The Three Bears was to name a photographer they admired, capable of photographing man-made objects and wildlife with equal aplomb. A photographer who used color just as well as black and white. A photographer who could beautifully frame an object as large as a bridge, or as small as a flower. A photographer whose work would look good printed large or small.

Poppa bear grumbled, “What? Is she trying to make us …Continue reading this article…

charity: water Greeting Cards – a $22 per pack donation

September 2009, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by james

As you know, September is our birthday month, and we’re celebrating with a month of different discounts. There are different discounts featured on different days – and not always on MOO products. Today (Thursday Sept 3rd), for example, we’re sharing an exclusive 10% discount with our friends at Firebox. Tomorrow, well, that’s a secret, but it’s a MOO discount!

Which is all very nice (we hope). But when we heard about charity: water we thought it was such a good cause, we’d go an extra mile to help out.

charity: water is dedicated to bringing clean, safe drinking water to developing countries. In their own words:

“One billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. …Continue reading this article…

Question 7 in our cryptic quiz: ‘Three Is The Magic Number’

September 2009, by Denise | 17 Comments – latest by Janet

And so we reach day three of our cryptic quiz! The plot thickens – and we pick up the story of our Three Blind Mice as they try to solve the mystery of Mary’s missing frog. Is Dan St Jacques guilty, or a man wrongly accused?

We’ve got an extra special prize for our three winners today – a $200 gift certificate for DNA11! An innovative company they create portraits as unique as you are – with your own DNA! Some people might remember us mentioning them a while ago, when we spotted their Business Cards. We’re quite excited about this, and can’t wait to see how it all turns out.

Question six in our cryptic quiz: “Three Is The Magic Number”!

September 2009, by Denise | 27 Comments – latest by Karen Goodwin

After the shock of the last question and the sheer beauty of a composite MOO employee, we’re picking up the story of our three graphic designers from yesterday. This is our last question for today – stay tuned for the answers and more questions tomorrow!

The Third Zone: The Guides

Our three young friends decide to split up and each go their own way. “No use in all three of us competing for the same design jobs,” Rod confidently tells the other two. Grant is secretly relieved and agrees. Balise smiles vaguely and nods her head. Rod sets off across the school grounds down the left road into the city, Grant takes the center road, and Blaise sets off down …Continue reading this article…

Question five in our cryptic quiz: “Three Is The Magic Number”!

September 2009, by Denise | 12 Comments – latest by Lisa

Now we move swiftly on, leaving The Three Blind Mice behind for today, to cope with their frustratingly frogless client, Mary.

The story of our family of photographers continues….

Unbearable Lightness of Being

Goldilocks was not the type of client who just hired three photographic bears because she’d heard good things about them. No, she wanted proof. The first task she set for them was to figure out what three MOO employee’s portraits had been combined to create this frankenportrait.

QUESTION: Can you help The Three Bears find the three faces? Rumor has it they might be faces you’ll find at Moo HQ.

Answers in the comments please – and we’ll approve them all on Thursday morning, when we put the …Continue reading this article…

But anyway – on with today’s first question, Hardboiled, Part Two. We continue yesterday’s tale of The Three …Continue reading this article…
