Using a vision board to keep yourself on track

January 2015, by Karen | 4 Comments – latest by Karen

Do you ever fall asleep with great ideas and thoughts floating around in your head only to have forgotten it all in the morning? Instead of wishing for dreamtime post-it notes (awesome idea, huh?) your next great idea could be captured by creating a vision board. A picture really is worth a thousand words as the brain processes images much faster than a cluster of words. We’ll stop there with the science but that’s why vision boards are used by businesses of all shapes and sizes to capture objectives, create plans and devise strategies.

Your very own slice of SCOPE

December 2014, by Karen | Add a comment

We’re happy to report very little incidence of heat stroke, sunburn or celebrity overdose from the MOO Crew who spent a week in Miami during Art Basel. The contemporary art schmoozefest that is SCOPE Miami Beach was the perfect place to showcase the finale of our #CreativitySquared competition, which was a global call to action to create art that fit a square space. We wanted people to think inside the box, if you will.

From thousands of entries we chose one winner, the lovely Colleen McCulla, whose submission was displayed alongside the work of nine other very talented and established artists in our …Continue reading this article…

It all started with a stapler

December 2014, by Karen | 6 Comments – latest by seo sluzby

We’ve all bought an everyday office product like a stapler, only for it to be ‘borrowed’ and never returned, or worse, to break halfway through stapling that urgent pile of documents. We haven’t sorted a solution for that sticky-fingered stationery thief, but we can bring you Kaufmann Mercantile, a New York-based company stocking a range of home and office products that are, thankfully, made to last. And they’re even giving away one of their most desirable stationery items here.   But first, we spoke to Evan and Valerie from their product team to find out what makes a great product and how Kaufmann Mercantile started selling office supplies after an incident with a crappy stapler.

Holiday stickers do double-duty

December 2014, by Karen | 1 Comment – latest by Stickers

What everyone needs this time of year are products that do double duty – like a robot that cooks the turkey and keeps your gran away from the sherry, that sort of thing. We can’t provide miracles just yet, but we’ve come up with ways to get double the mileage from our Stickers this holiday season.

Close it

Why not make sure festive Greeting Cards aren’t let down by plain white envelopes? Our Cursive Christmas collection will surely add a splash of yuletide spice and keep the mood festive with words like ‘cheer’ and ‘enjoy’.

They can also help if you’re refereeing at the table after the eggnog has everyone’s …Continue reading this article…

We are family: our medley of merry musicians

 

‘Twas the night before Christmas when all through the house, not a creature was stirring… apart from our Senior Graphic Designer Matt, who was hard at work planning this year’s musical masterpiece from MOO. And it was more like late November, but anyway…

For Matt, the festive season is all about getting the relatives together for a bit of a shindig – hence The Festive Funk Family was born.

To bring his motley crew to life, Matt gathered a motley crew of his own. First through the door was Pâté on Toast (aka artist Paul Pateman). We’ve long been …Continue reading this article…

What goes around comes around, but only better

December 2014, by Karen | Add a comment

We’ve been throwing it back at MOO HQ recently. We don’t mean posting embarrassing photos from our younger days on Instagram (although we often do that #tbt), or sporting vintage adidas Stan Smith trainers (some of us do that too). Instead, we’re coveting classic products that have been made better, faster, stronger with advances in modern technology. Think a 1950s stylin’ radio fitted out with an iPhone connector or a 1960s muscle car with a modern V8 engine under the hood. This mashup of old-meets-new, or new-stalgia as we like to call it, is behind our new Letterpress Business Cards.


When we say Letterpress is old, we mean old (like, older than Mick Jagger …Continue reading this article…

Say a big holiday hello-ho-ho to The Festive Funk Family!

December 2014, by emma | 1 Comment – latest by J

 

Whether it’s squabbles over Scrabble or fights over figgy pudding, there’s something about the festive season that brings out the feistiness in most families – ours included. But there’s nothing like a good old sing song to bring those warring relatives together. Which is why we’ve gathered our most musical relatives for some seasonal sounds.

Yes, The Festive Funk Family is here to rock your holiday time!

Kicking off the line-up is our pet pug Pudding. He can’t sing (he’s a dog), but he’s pretty handy – or should that be ‘paws-y’? – with those jolly jingly bells. Joining him is our R&B wannabe – no band’s complete without one. Ours likes to think …Continue reading this article…

See it, hear it, love it: Letterpress

December 2014, by emma | 6 Comments – latest by emma

These past few days have seen the usual Christmas music replaced by a rhythmically soothing ‘clickety-clack…whoosh’ in the MOO studio. Check out the mechanical melodics yourself above.

Our Letterpress Business Cards are a true celebration of vintage-meets-modern. From the top quality Luxe paper to the 12 unique designs we’ve created especially for the range, it’s de boss, innit? No, seriously, debossing is the process we use to create the impression on each card.

The result is a card that shouts ‘please touch me!’ Once your customers have got their hands on one of these charming chaps they won’t want to put it down (probably).  That MC Hammer guy was wrong – …Continue reading this article…

Get your MOOstaches!

November 2014, by Karen | Add a comment

To kick-start MOOvember we asked our favourite diva Carrot the cat to sport an array of famous moustaches for a video. It was difficult to get a talent of her calibre to commit, but on the day Carrot worked Hulk Hogan’s handlebars like a seasoned pro. After we posted our video, there was a lot of ‘tache envy out there – requests from you folks to have the same tache-tastic fun on your own. We’ve listened and answered – the famous moustaches worn by Carrot are now available to print, cut out and wear too. So, whether you want to embrace the 80s with Magnum’s mo or rock a Keith Lemon, it’s easy. Plus, with …Continue reading this article…

Our Greeting Cards are here!

November 2014, by Karen | 4 Comments – latest by Jonny

Unless you’re one of those hyper organised types that has finished their shopping in August, the holiday season scramble can make even the most spiritually zen feel out of sorts. So to ease the pressure of finding the perfect Greeting Cards, our designers Hannah and Steve have created some seriously stylish designs that will suit every Santa and Ebenezer on your list.

A non-official staff poll found that half the office would prefer to holiday in the sun rather than invest in a light therapy lamp to combat Seasonal Affective Disorder this winter, and Steve’s Silhouettes cards are designed with these folks in mind. Inspired by spending a Christmas Down Under, …Continue reading this article…

The cat’s whiskers

November 2014, by emma | 6 Comments – latest by Anna Prushinski

 

Meet Carrot. Carrot is a cat on a mission – to find the purrfect MOOvember moustache.

Keen to capture it all on film, our new favourite facial hair fanatic was a natural in front of the camera. We were lucky enough to be invited along to the shoot, and once we’d got over the scale of Carrot’s entourage (a moggy model needs to look its best), we had great fun guessing the famous ‘tache wearer behind each MiniCard mo. Can you get them all?

We can happily assure you that no cats were harmed in the making of this video. In fact, Carrot had a jolly old time working those whiskers (and being primped, preened and generally made a fuss …Continue reading this article…

V for Victore

November 2014, by emma | 1 Comment – latest by Discover Beauty

 

“Your ego can’t dance,” claims designer James Victore. This statement and nine other witty, yet thought provoking, adages make up ‘Your Work is a Gift’, his new collection for our charitable design initiative, The Luxe Project.

James is a man of many talents. When he’s not hard at work on his unique and, let’s face it, quite racy designs, he writes, lectures, wins awards and formulates his plans for world domination.

We’re not sure how close he is to actually taking over the world, but he’s certainly shaking things up in the creative industry with his audacious graphics and popular video series Burning Questions. As you’ll soon learn, ‘conventional’ is not in …Continue reading this article…

The painting’s on the wall

October 2014, by emma | 7 Comments – latest by vdplastering

Here at MOO HQ we’ve recently welcomed a vibrant new addition to our lovely ground floor studio. Thanks to the über-talented Supermundane (aka artist Rob Lowe) we now have our very own colourtastic mural!

Don’t get us wrong, we appreciate the minimalist look as much as the next print and design business, but the big blank wall in our creative space was crying out for a injection of MOO’s playful personality. And graphic designer Rob, with his signature abstract style, was just the man for the job.

Now you know us, we’re not ones for keeping things to ourselves. And we didn’t want to tease you with talk about our bright and bold new piece of wall art without showing …Continue reading this article…

Bad customer service is only funny in the movies, and in reality, it can make the difference between you and your competitors.

Double lives – the facts revealed

October 2014, by emma | 3 Comments – latest by Tom Groenfeldt

As you might have seen from our post on fictional characters and their alter egos last week, we’ve had double lives on the brain lately. And having thoroughly enjoyed creating a collection of Classic and Square Business Cards to reflect the dual existences of the likes of Walter White and Heisenberg, and Batman and Bruce Wayne, we started to think about double lives in the ‘real’ world. In fact, we were so curious about the growing number of people earning money from creative pursuits outside of their main job that we commissioned a piece of research to discover more about them. The results were fascinating.

Profitable hobbies

Most strikingly, it’s estimated that this …Continue reading this article…
