Entrepreneurs ! Designers ! Photographes ! (Don’t worry, you’re not going mad – it’s all in French.)

February 2013, by Pierre-Julien.Baudoin | 17 Comments – latest by Alvin Parker

You might have noticed that we’ve been blogging in French recently. And you might be wondering “Did MOO get hit on the head and wake up with foreign accent syndrome?”

Just to remind you, we haven’t – we’re just making sure that our rapidly expanding French MOO friends have something to read too!

La vie d’une start-up, d’un freelance ou d’un créatif ressemble parfois à des montagnes russes : des hauts, des bas, des moments de joie intense ou de sérieux doutes.

MOO est passé par là il y a 6 ans et nous avons la chance d’avoir une communauté tournée vers l’entreprenariat et la créativité. Nos amis français sont de plus en plus nombreux et nous nous adaptons afin de nous occuper de vous avec toute l’attention et le soin que vous méritez. Une nouvelle équipe a été formée chez MOO afin d’être plus proche de ceux qui parlent la langue de Voltaire et de la Marseillaise… et qui ont la chance d’avoir accès à du confit de canard à toute heure de la journée.

Vous aurez aussi l’occasion de nous rencontrer en personne car nous serons présent à des événements qui accompagnent les jeunes entreprises et les métiers créatifs. D’ailleurs, où serez-vous cette année? (laissez un commentaire sur ce post). Donnons-nous rendez-vous !

Et pour célébrer cette occasion, nous vous offrons la livraison gratuite pendant deux semaines ! Au moment de payer, entrez simplement ce code de promotion : 6N56K2

Design some Stickers for Cleopatra in our latest competition

February 2013, by Jon | Add a comment

Last month, you helped us kick off 2013 with our 5 Card Pitch competition, which was great fun. Why stop there, we asked ourselves. It’s been a while since we asked you to show us your creativity and carry out some rebranding in a celebrity themed competition. So who better to undergo a MOO makeover than the Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra (a.k.a CEO of Nile Enterprises).

We like to think that if MOO had been around a few thousand years ago, Cleo would have been a MOO fan. After all, she was a powerful (business) woman, and might have used Round Stickers to seal her papyrus …Continue reading this article…

MOO Award Winner Daniel Kushner brings down the house

February 2013, by Ploi F | 2 Comments – latest by Jamie

Meet Daniel Kushner. He’s the guitar-slinging industrial designer behind MONO, and the 2012 US MOO Award winner.

According to staff accounts it was a very (we repeat, very!) cold morning when Daniel arrived at the US MOO office. He was then quickly scooped up by Steve and Paul (visting from the UK) and given a tour of the warehouse. This went down a treat as he was shown the physical creation of many MOO Products including our Luxe Cards.

Soon after, Daniel spent some time with MOO CEO, Richard Moross (where we can only assume they discussed the amazing cake waiting outside).…Continue reading this article…

The launch of our NFC by MOO App

February 2013, by Martin | 72 Comments – latest by Jonathon

Pour la version française, c’est par ici.

You may remember, at the end of last year we began a limited trial run of NFC Business Cards. Anybody who purchased a pack of Business Cards from us would get a complimentary NFC enabled Business Card with a preview of your cards pre-written to it. These have proved to be extremely popular with you as a peek into our future, and as a way to get your minds whirring about the possibilities of Business Cards, technology and what a “third side” of a card could be.

While a full production version of NFC Business Cards from MOO are a little way away, we have …Continue reading this article…

MOO se prépare pour la saison des conférences (and a little English introduction)

February 2013, by Pierre-Julien.Baudoin | Add a comment

Just like a moody (but still lovable) teenager, MOO is going through some important changes. We’re growing, and our international customers are growing with us.

To show them we care, we’ll be writing some blog posts in the language of love, wine and cheese. (We mean French, in case the clichés aren’t obvious.)

Introducing….the MOO 5-Card Pitch Competition Winner!

February 2013, by Jamie | 7 Comments – latest by Suzy Allman

We wanted to get 2013 off to a flying start – so to help us get rid of those pesky January blues, we invited you to explain your business idea on 5 business cards. We didn’t have to look far for inspiration – which basically means we pinched (or should we say “borrowed”?) the idea from our UK MOO Award winners ColaLife, who used their MOO cards as a brilliant pitching tool.

We’ve been very impressed with all the great entries, and we had a really tough task in judging. After much debating, we can finally reveal that our winner is *drum roll* Natalie McNichols from Visual Appetite, whose cards look good enough to …Continue reading this article…

MOO’s getting ready for SXSW 2013

February 2013, by Melissa | 11 Comments – latest by Jamie

Last year MOO had a blast at SXSW, meeting the hundreds of people who chose to collect MOO Business Cards and other products from our little tent by the convention center. After hearing about how much people loved being able to come get their cards in person (with carry on bag policies these days, every little ounce counts!), it was a no brainer for us to offer the same service again. This time, MOO will be hanging out at the Hackney House on 6th street, which is a house set up by the council in London that MOO HQ is located in. They’re bringing a bunch of Hackney based companies to Austin for SXSW Interactive, so …Continue reading this article…

Bits and Pieces – a deconstructed look at old mobile phones

February 2013, by Felix | 1 Comment – latest by raquel

For our latest set of Business Card designs, which we’ve aptly named Bit and Pieces, there was a fair amount of destruction that had to occur before any creation took place. I’m always interested by the way things work, or why things are the way they are, take, for example, the ever-present mobile phone.

MOO Inkdrop made from disassembled old phones

The mystery – a bit like invisible magic –  inside products really fascinates me. When I was about to throw away a few broken old mobile phones that had accumulated over the years, it struck me that …Continue reading this article…
