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…

Not only that, but we have three new prizes!

The prize for the first person who answers a question correctly today will be a pack of 25 Greeting Cards. (We’ve updated the functionality of Greeting Cards too – so you might like to take a quick look. Resellers will love the fact that for a limited time, you can remove the MOO logo for free – and of course, add your own!)

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

September 2009, by Denise | 80 Comments – latest by madly59

Here we are already, at the last of three questions for today! Join three graphic designers at the very start of their careers – one confident, one sad and one wet-behind the ears.

We found this question harder than the first two, but have full confidence in your puzzling skills! The first to answer this question will win a Flickr Pro account and a pack of MiniCards. Good luck!

The Third Zone: Painting the Town
This is the story of three carefree young graphic designers—Rod, Grant, and Blaise. Diplomas in hand, they have just tossed their caps in the air and are setting out into the Big City to look for work. They are full of hope and wonder, these three …Continue reading this article…

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

September 2009, by Denise | 101 Comments – latest by Lori Jones

Hot on the heels of our hard-at-work friends introduced in question one, we meet three photographers, each with their own skills and specialisms.

Read their story carefully for clues, and the first to answer the question at the end correctly will win a Flickr Pro account, and a box of MiniCards.

Unbearable Lightness of Being: Junior’s Tale

You see, momma snaps photos of weddings
and tiny babies all dressed up in white.
Pappa snaps animals and landscapes so wild
and does most of his shooting in the night.
Myself, I like action, sports and the like,
surfing and skiing, and muscles so tight.

We are all pros, of a sort, and we’ve all
got our strengths, along with weaknesses too.
Momma’s lighting is most always too bright,
And Pappa’s …Continue reading this article…
