And the winners of the calligraphy competition are…

October 2013, by Jon | 2 Comments – latest by Jon

A while ago, we caught a bit of a bug. Don’t worry, we’re not unwell, just a little bit obsessed with putting ink to paper. That might not be what you call ‘news’… but I guess what we’re trying to say is we’re hooked on calligraphy.

It all started when we invited Douglas Bevans from Central St Martins to come into MOO HQ and impart his wisdom with a MOO-U calligraphy lesson. We were pretty much hooked as soon as we picked up our pens and started making swirly shapes, discovering how much fun it is to see your own name written in ink.

You know how much we love getting creative, so naturally, we set you guys a challenge; to scribe your favourite quotes for an extra special prize; a set of personalised Luxe Notecards to help you delight clients and friends with handwritten notes.

Before the big reveal (well, we have to build suspense), we just wanted to offer a snapshot of how many entries we received!

Big stack of paper

We can now reveal the winner of our Cleopatra Sticker competition…

March 2013, by Jamie | Add a comment

That’s right, a new pharaoh has been crowned! A few weeks ago we asked you to reimagine Cleopatra’s branding. What would the last Pharoah of Egypt’s branding look like? How would she use Stickers to network? And would she *constantly* be instagramming pictures of the pyramids?

We’ve had loads of fantastic submissions (we’re always amazed how creative you all are *hides own stick-man-drawing entry*) and earlier this week we sat down with a small judging team (think X-factor but without the cameras and audience) and our graphic designer Jovanna to pick our worthy winner.  So without further ado, it’s time to announce the winner of the MOO Cleopatra sticker …Continue reading this article…

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…

Our top picks of your Christmas Card designs

December 2012, by Jon | 1 Comment – latest by Tour Operators Sri Lanka

Last month we showcased some innovative Christmas and Holiday Cards that MOO Creative Director Matt G tracked down. This got us thinking; there must be hundreds of wonderful designs out there in the big wide world that Matt simply wouldn’t have time to track down by himself. So we asked our friends on Facebook and Twitter to show us what they’d seen or created.

We got so many responses that there’s simply not enough blog space to hold them all! We’ve picked just a selection of designs that really caught our eye. Without further ado, here are our top picks:

We’re not the only ones who make Greeting Cards!

November 2012, by Jon | 27 Comments – latest by Kimberly Mortson

We just launched a new range of Greeting Card packs, and we’re rather pleased with them. It occurred to us, though, that we’re not the only ones who come up with creative designs. We’d absolutely love to see the cool company greetings you’ve sent and received or simply stumbled upon. You can share your finds with us by posting them on our Facebook page or by Tweeting them to us @overheardatmoo.

To get us started, we turned to Matt G – MOO’s very own creative guru (and fashion guru, have you seen those jumpers?) He thought he’d have a look around for how companies …Continue reading this article…

MOO and Improved – Part II

October 2012, by Aaron T | 12 Comments – latest by Double U.

We quite enjoy watching dodgy sequels, you know, the ones that went straight to DVD! But when it comes to our website upgrades at MOO, our sequels just keep getting better…

We ‘re always exploring new ways to make life easier for our customers. When we were improving our upload, image and design tools recently we had one reservation, “What about all the designers in our coMOOnity? None of these improvements are going to make life easier for them”.

You see we have noticed that a great many of you arrive at moo.com with complete designs – some great ones too – for both sides of your cards. You don’t need MOO tools and templates; you just need a great printer.

Well we …Continue reading this article…

We have a winner! Da Vinci’s Label competition

September 2012, by Jon | 4 Comments – latest by Joe Sparks

A few weeks ago we asked you to design a sticky label for Leonardo Da Vinci. Drum roll please… It’s time to announce the winner of the design-a-sticky-label-for-Leonardo-Da-Vinci-competition (we really are excellent at coming up with snappy, memorable names for things at MOO)!

We were really amazed at the number of submissions that were attractive and intelligent (two adjectives we like to think also apply to the MOO Crew) and we have whittled them down to select a winner.

After much deliberation and hours of sifting through great big sacks full of postal entries (OK, we lied – emails) we’re very excited to announce that Micha Lema has been selected as the winner! We loved the fun mix of old and modern, …Continue reading this article…

Design team’s typographic day out

October 2011, by Jovanna | Add a comment

The graphic design team was sent to the very first Typographic Conference to be held in London. Three jam packed days of back-to-back talks by the design worlds leading typographers and creatives. It was a fabulous fest of type design, ascenders, brackets and other Ponzi designer-y quirk.

We loved the idea of typefaces being designed for a specific purpose and use, such as; typefaces particularly for swearing and others just for telling lies. What would be the best typeface for passing on your details on a small paper card?

Tom Uglow from Google and You Tube’s Creative lab talked about how computers dominate our lives and reminded us that it was only recently we joined …Continue reading this article…

Graphic minimalism : MOO cards by designers

August 2011, by Andrea | 5 Comments – latest by Ardham Elena

One way to make your designs and Business Cards stand out is a “less is more” approach that some of our creative customers have used to market their personal brand. As usual, these examples merely the tip of your creative iceberg – but here are a few that caught our eye.

Brand new customer Nate Imhoff chose to, in his own words “keep my collateral simple” with these clean, stark cards. Nate explains “I believe good design is good business, and giving my collateral too much personality could detract from my work, which I want to speak for itself.” We think you’ll agree, he gets his message across very well!

MOO Crew Does Letterpress

August 2011, by Lisa | 1 Comment – latest by Han

At MOO, We Love to Print. You already knew that, didn’t you? But most days, we print your lovely cards on Big MOO, which is our brand new state of the art HP Indigo Digital Press. However, a month ago a few of us had a chance to print on one of Big MOO’s distant relatives.

We were fortunate enough to go on a roadtrip to a community print shop in Providence, Rhode Island – AS220 Print Shop.

another one

At AS220, we left our laptops behind, rolled up our sleeves, grabbed a composing stick , and set type by hand. To prepare us for printing using Letterpress. Cat, our instructor, introduced us …Continue reading this article…
