Life as a MOO tech intern…

August 2010, by Denise | Add a comment

It’s a sad day at MOO HQ today, as we say goodbye to Will, our intern who’s been working with the Dev team. He joined us for two months while on a summer break from Cambridge University – and we’ve kept him busy since the second he set foot through the door! A perfect member of the MOO crew, Will fit right in with everyone, working on new parts of the site, and experimenting with the API. We wish him well as he heads off back to university, and thought we’d let him take centre stage one last time while he tells you what he’s been up to…


Having just spent two months working at the offices in …Continue reading this article…

Handwritten business cards

August 2010, by Rebeka | 1 Comment – latest by James Darling

If you haven’t already guessed, Business Cards are quite a big deal over here at MOO HQ. We know the importance of always having Business Cards with you, since you never know who’ll meet. But what about those times when you get back from an event or conference, and you just can’t remember who that person was or why you have their Business Card? Sometimes you quickly jot down notes in the margins, often resulting in blank stares as you try to decode your squished, messy handwriting.

We know the feeling. And then we spotted these stunning cards from Claudia K Opticians.

Creative (text-based) cards

August 2010, by Rebeka | Add a comment

Like the idea of ‘Printfinity‘ but don’t have different photos or images for your Business Cards? No problem! There’s still plenty of ways to get creative using only text. We’ve seen loads of text-based Business Cards, like BatchBlue’s use of Twitter quotes from happy customers or Equinox Photography’s fortune cookie MiniCards, that certainly stand out from the crowd. Words can have just as much impact as images, and can often be great conversation starters. Here are some examples of ways you can get creative with your cards by using only text.

These cards were designed for e3Strategies by The Business Card Project. e3Strategies provides consulting services for adult learning initiatives, including leadership …Continue reading this article…

Stuck in a (business card) design rut?

August 2010, by Rebeka | 3 Comments – latest by Denise

We received such a positive response from our MOO Ideas Book, that we launched The Business Card Project to help inspire small businesses with a business card design inspiration gallery of their own. Since we launched the project back in June, we’ve tackled hundreds of redesigns spanning a range of industries from healthcare to consulting and entertainment to retail. No matter what industry you’re in, there’s really no excuse for boring business cards. And as they say, ‘the proof is in the pudding’, so here we go!

Mobile Libations, a cocktail catering company in San Francisco, benefited from a $500-share of our $250,000 design investment. We took their wonderful collection of cocktail shots and turned their black & …Continue reading this article…
