The right tools for the job

June 2014, by emma | 3 Comments – latest by emma

We’ve all had that ‘not-enough-hours-in-the-day’ feeling, so finding those things that make our working lives that little bit easier can be a real blessing.

As an online business, we’re big fans of calling on technology to help us do our jobs better. We caught up with a few of the MOO Crew to discover the tools they swear by for getting things done.

 
1.  TweetDeck
Jon Baldwin, Community and Content Associate: “Tweetdeck is a super useful tool. It lets me see all the tweets that mention MOO, Business Cards or any of our other products, as well as follow interesting conversations with different hashtags. I can also create filters to show me only the relevant or most important tweets, which is perfect for …Continue reading this article…

Join the fold

June 2014, by Jon | 6 Comments – latest by Susan

We all know that Letterheads are a great way to send professional business communications, such as invoices, proposals, cover letters and more. These interactions with clients and business partners are important for helping your brand to stand out and be remembered, and are the perfect opportunity to have a little fun and show off your personality, too.

Letterheads have another trick up their sleeves – folding! When designing your Letterheads, why not give some thought to how the person opening the envelope will experience the information and your chosen design? Thanks to double-sided colour printing and the option of Printfinity with MOO Letterheads, there’s plenty of room to get creative.

We asked Felix, MOO Product Designer and …Continue reading this article…

Get on your bike: Wheels for Water

June 2014, by leila | Add a comment

You don’t have to be a superhero to make a difference in the world – but though many people sympathise with the plight of those less fortunate, far fewer turn their sympathy into a charitable business that truly makes a difference.

That’s why we admire Justin Ahrens, founder of Wheels4Water – because that’s exactly what he’s done! And no, he’s not a super human or a saint – he’s an ordinary creative professional, who, as you’re reading this, is currently well into his 1000 mile ride from Atlantic Ocean to Lake Michigan (a journey that, he assures us, includes real actual mountains!) in order to raise awareness for the world water crisis, and money to provide an entire …Continue reading this article…

Prinfinity winner – flippin’ good!

May 2014, by Jon | Add a comment

One of our favourite things about Printfinity (that’s being able to put a different one of your lovely images on every card) is seeing all the clever, fun and inventive ways you use it to showcase what you do. That’s why we ran a competition all about Printfinity (after all, who doesn’t love a competition?).

We wanted to see how you used Printfinity to ensure that after that great networking moment, your brand new connection or customer remembers you and hopefully even recommends you to someone else!

We hope you’re as excited as us about finding out who the winner is, so we’ll get right to it. Let’s give a big round of virtual applause (and some less virtual MOOlah, of …Continue reading this article…

MOO goes to…the Design Week Awards!

May 2014, by Andrea | Add a comment

It’s not every day we get our glad rags on over here at MOO (we’re a pretty casual bunch). But last week’s Design Week Awards in London were certainly worth digging out our bow-ties and high heels for.

We were genuinely privileged to be a part of such a prestigious event in the world of design. And not just because Design Week celebrates creative minds and rewards excellence, (or the delicious food!). No, we were most excited because our very own Head of Design Anna Ebubedike was presenting an award – and she did a lovely job too!

We arrived on time to The Troxy, an incredible art-deco theatre in Limehouse designed by legendary …Continue reading this article…

We’ve been improving things

May 2014, by emma | Add a comment

It’s fair to say it’s been a busy few months here at MOO HQ. We like to do everything we can to help you achieve the great design you want across all of our products, so we’ve been working extra hard to deliver a whole bunch of changes that we think will make the MOO experience just that little bit easier and more enjoyable for you.

New range of templates

For a start, we’ve introduced a range of templates for you to use on the image side of our Business Cards, MiniCards and Postcards. Previously you could only upload a single image, but now you can get a lot more creative with your design, and you don’t …Continue reading this article…

A word (well, many!) with designer Jessica Hische

May 2014, by Ashley | 2 Comments – latest by Ashley

At MOO, there are few things we love more than great stationery and beautiful design (though pugs and cake certainly come close!), which is why our Luxe Project – where some of our favorite designers take a turn at designing our products – has always been a favorite of ours.

This month – hot off the heels of our Typography week – our Luxe designer is illustrator and letterer extraordinaire Jessica Hische. Her long list of clients include Penguin Books, Wes Anderson, Starbucks, Mailchimp – and now MOO!

We chatted with Jessica about her recent Luxe Project, inspired by her Daily Drop Caps project in 2009, and about all things type.

Let’s start from the …Continue reading this article…

How was HOW Design Live?

May 2014, by Ashley | Add a comment

Imagine our luck this year when we found out HOW Design Live, one of the biggest national design conferences in the US, would be hosted in Boston – home to our newest MOO office! Needless to say, we had quite a group of happy MOO Crew members in attendance.

Now, as the conference comes to a close, we thought we’d give you a little round-up of what went down. Here are five things we enjoyed at HOW Design Live this year.

1.)     We got to share a booth with our partners in premium paper crime, Mohawk!
It was a pretty lovely set-up if we do say so ourselves – and we loved …Continue reading this article…

#MOOTypeWeek Round Up

May 2014, by Cheryl | Add a comment

 

We spent last week knee-deep in letters, head to head font battles, a designing with type competition and typeface guessing. You all seemed fairly excited for #MOOTypeWeek and even sent us some of your favorite type examples (although we could spend forever talking about hand lettering versus typography!)

 

Our customer Franz Jietz got a chance in the spotlight, showing off some of his …Continue reading this article…

We made you a mixtape!

May 2014, by Cheryl | Add a comment

The MOO offices are always bubbling over with creativity, and because we know how much music helps us get into the mood, we thought we’d share some of our musical inspiration with you. In short, we decided to make you a mixtape.

And it felt right that our first ever playlist had the theme of something that’s truly close to our heart – paper. We even managed to find a couple songs about Business Cards!

Click the picture below to start listening (you’ll have to log into Spotify, but the desktop playlist is free to listen to) or click here to listen in Spotify. Got any you’d like us to add? Comment below or tweet us on @overheardatmoo with you …Continue reading this article…
