Question 14 in our Cryptic Quiz: “Three is the Magic Number!”

September 2009, by Lisa | 27 Comments – latest by TJ

In the second question of the day, we’re reunited with our three photographers who are still trying to win the job. This question maybe a little easier for those with a photographic mind and who are prone to a bit wanderlust. If that doesn’t sound like you, no worries, I’m sure a quick image search may make the difference.

And, now back to the bears…

Unbearable Lightness of Being

Goldilocks wanted one last test before she’d agree to hire the bears. “My photographers must be world travelers,” she archly said. “If you can you identify these three landmarks, I’ll happily hire you for this job.”

3 Landmarks

Poppa bear’s ears perked up. “Landmarks? Does this …Continue reading this article…

Question 12 in our cryptic quiz: “Three is the Magic Number!”

September 2009, by Lisa | 41 Comments – latest by ann

Here we go. It’s the last question of the week. Remember, we’re choosing our winner based on lucky draw. Take your time, submit the right answer and you may win. Here goes …

The Third Zone: Three Paths

A crossroads, decisions to be made. A direction to choose. Each of us reach many such crossroads in our lives, but Rod, Grant, and Blaise had come to a crossroads… in the Third Zone.

By now all three have realized that the city streets they walk are not the same streets they are used to. Grant wishes he’d taken Atlas’s map. Blaise wishes she’d taken a peak at Index’s books. Rod wishes he’d been able to keep up with TAG. But …Continue reading this article…

Question 11: in Our Cryptic Quiz: “Three is the Magic Number”

September 2009, by Lisa | 58 Comments – latest by Saturnfox

If you’re into iconic photography like our photographer friends, you might find this question a little easier than the last one. Take your time and make sure you don’t jump too quickly because today we’re awarding our prizes based on lucky draw, not speed. All that matters is that you get it right (and of course that you’re lucky!). You have until Sunday night to answer.

Go!

UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING
Part 4

The bears had passed their tests with ease, proving they could recognize detail and style. But Goldi wasn’t done with them yet. “But what about composition,” she asked, “if we take away detail are your eyes still keen? Can you tell me who took these, without …Continue reading this article…

Question 10 in our Cryptic Quiz: “Three is the magic Number”!

September 2009, by Lisa | 23 Comments – latest by Saturnfox

Happy Friday! Some of you may be happy to hear, we’re going to change how we award prizes. It should give those of you who are a little slower of the mark (like me) a better chance at winning. Rather than awarding the prize to the person with the first correct answer, we’ll be choosing today’s winners based on a lucky draw. This means, if you can figure out the answer to the cryptic quiz before Monday morning, you have a chance at winning today’s prize. So, take your time, think about it and then submit your answer in the comments. As always, we won’t approve the comments until Monday.

Today’s prize is a free set of MOO MiniCardsContinue reading this article…

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 …Continue reading this article…
