Celebrity Cards competition

11th May 2012 by Dan H

We’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Business Cards here at MOO (no surprises there) and love seeing all the different designs that get sent to Big MOO to print – you really are a creative bunch you know!

This got us thinking about the cards we don’t see and what famous characters’ cards might look like. Kicking things off with Zeus, because the King of the Gods seemed like a good place to start, we settled on the following design:

Not bad hey?

Still, it’s not fair for us to have all the fun, so we want to see your designs! Given that designing some cool cards for the Zeus is on par with the twelve tasks of Hercules, everyone who sends us a design will be entered into our competition to win $300 cash and $100 to spend at MOO.

Simply send your Zeus card designs to designs@moo.com or leave a link to them in the comments below by midnight (PST) on Wednesday 23rd May and Monika from our design team will pick a winner.

Good luck and we can’t wait to see your Zeus card designs!

    Great idea, but i think i’ve been a doofus! I’ve been having fun thinking up Poseidon cards – whoops! Back to the drawing board!

  4. Kristin:

    Love this idea. Great challenge, very fun.

  5. katie:

    you do know you will get a million Patrick Bateman cards? I truly hope you do!

  6. James Cook:

    Is there a specific format/dpi/resolution that this needs to be?

    • Dan H:

      Hi James

      There’s no specific format, just as long as we can clearly see your card design.

      Thanks

  7. Alexander Baldele:

    nice approach, love it!

  8. Grant:

    Great challenge, guys. Just sent my designs in.

  9. Matt Ingle:

    I may send in my poseidon ones anyway!

  10. OnWord:

    Are there any regulations about being a US / British / EU resident? I’m a Canadian and many of these contests have citizenship requirements that filter me out.

    • Dan H:

      You’ll be pleased to know that there’s no country restrictions for this competition. Thanks

  11. Angela:

    Genius idea!

  12. Sarah:

    Hi! Is there any possible way to get a few of your famous person cards – one each of Einstein, Zeus and Eiffel, for instance? I collect business cards and I think these are just awesome. Also, if you put together a set of more than the three, I might be interested in purchasing one.

    Thank you :) !

  13. Justin Ransburg:

    Just the front of the card?

  14. Dino:

    Can it be die cut, folded etc, or only something that you guys currently print? :)

  15. Big game hunters:

    We are on it, and having a go. We have also been coming up with other ideas for people who need cards. The man on the moon. Barbie. Mr Benn. Uncle Ben.

  16. Carl De Gussem:

    For god’s sake, and i know what i mean, that’ll be great!
    I’ll go for it :-)
