We had an overwhelming response to our blog yesterday announcing our latest delivery option – Pug Post. We had tons of dog owners putting their pets forward to join the Canine Courier programme – deciding it was about time their dogs brought in a little money of their own.
But you might have also noticed that the date was April 1st. So, as much we truly wish we were rolling out Pug Post (we’re suckers for puppy-dog eyes too), we have to confess – it was an April Fools.
April Fools has become something of a tradition over at MOO HQ. So, we’re sorry if we got your hopes up – we just couldn’t resist. Some …Continue reading this article…
What’s cute, cuddly and ready to deliver your MOO order? It’s Pug Post!
Yes – from tomorrow you’ll be able to select the option to have your MOO order delivered by one of our furry canine friends.
We’ve never been ones to let the tide of change leave us behind, so when Amazon announced they’d been testing delivery by drones, we decided to re-think our delivery options too.
Our event pick-up service and MOO Shop have helped make delivery a little more convenient and personal. But, we wanted to take it even further, and give our customers a real ‘Yay!’ feeling when they received their order from MOO.
We knew drones …Continue reading this article…
Here’s a little story about two MOO teams that were so close, yet so far away (over 3000 miles, in fact!). These teams look after businesses with 20+ employees at MOO; one team lives in the UK and the other lives in the US.
The teams were in regular contact over the phone and via video conferencing, but they felt something was missing. They harboured a secret dream … that one day they could meet up.
But there was a barrier to their dream – a little expanse of water known as the Atlantic Ocean (gasp!) With rubber dinghies not being an option, the teams almost gave up on the idea.
But wait a minute, …Continue reading this article…
Continuing our series on those one-of-a-kind lightbulb moments where businesses are born, this week we’re featuring Happy Days Publishing. Founded by Gillian Hesketh, the business produces creative resources for organisations that support people going through difficult times.
Gillian has always had a love of creative processes, and a yearning to become a writer. Her journey towards Happy Days Publishing began when she signed up for a degree and then a Masters degree in English language, literature and writing, alongside caring for her sons, her mother and volunteering too!
During her Masters degree, she studied how creative writing and drawing can help people that are going through traumatic times to access and understand their emotions. …Continue reading this article…
When we first created rounded MiniCards, we wanted to find the best way to show off their versatility and style – which is why we turned to fellow design enthusiasts, RockPaperInk! Together we made ‘Take the Edge Off’ – a challenge for designers to use rounded MiniCards’ as a tiny canvas to create something special. Some chose to showcase their portfolio, while others used it to represent how they ‘take the edge off’ and relax. Needless to say, the results blew us away! From Zen-style stones to business mantras, we loved how each designer put their own personality into their MiniCards. And because we like to share, here’s a handful of the brilliant outcomes below!:
59 National …Continue reading this article…
There’s a definite buzz of excitement around MOO HQ at the moment, perhaps partly because we’ve changed the beans in the coffee machine, but it’s mainly due to the fact that we’ve been busy working on something rather special – a brand new TV commercial!
The project has involved teams from London and Boston, across various departments – from our creative and marketing masterminds, to our operations and printing perfectionists – everyone has (in some way or another) been involved.
The commercial will be airing in the US over the next few weeks, so you may just spot MOO on your TV. But, if you can’t wait until then or you’re elsewhere in the world, we’ve shared the video for you to …Continue reading this article…
When we first put our heads together and decided we wanted to spend a whole week talking about branding with the MOO community, we had a sneaky suspicion that we’d be blown away by your brands… And we weren’t wrong! We had a real blast sharing some of our favourite examples of brilliantly branded MOO customers, and you wowed us with your tips in return.
The highlight for us was chatting with you about your what makes your brand tick and why it’s an important part of growing a business:
Well said, guys! It’s great to hear that your own values …Continue reading this article…
It’s always exciting when a business grows – but sometimes a big change requires a fresh branding strategy to match! Rebranding takes a lot of work (and it’s certainly a bit tricky when it comes to making sure your customers will still recognise you). But in the end, giving your business a really brilliant new look is often worth the risk, long nights and extra cups of coffee.
We sat down with Suzanne Noble, founder of London freebie event-finder app, Frugl. As she’s just finished up the long process herself, we thought we’d ask her what she took into consideration when going through her own brand refresh.
How do brands start? Or better yet what makes something, a company, a person a brand? Well we’re very glad you asked! From big businesses down to freelancers they all benefit from having a cohesive brand.
If you’re a freelancer, consultant, or ‘one-man band,’ a strong visual brand that translates well on the web and on your Business Cards and other printed marketing materials to leave that impression on potential clients. When you can meet a new customer, contact or client anywhere, anytime you want to make sure they remember you (and get back in touch!).
Every day on Twitter and Facebook (and running off the printers in our factories in London and Rhode Island!) we get to see vibrant glimpses of …Continue reading this article…
A little while ago we set you a ‘brand-new’ challenge (see what we did there?!). We asked you to show off your consistently branded MOO products for the chance to win some MOOlah.
Without further ado, we’re very pleased to unveil the winner – as chosen by MOO Design Director Anup. Hats of to Steph – a.k.a. Wild Woman! Steph’s simple, clean and elegantly designed visual identity caught Anup’s eye. He was particularly impressed how the identity design was perfectly situated on each of her chosen printed products; Round Stickers, StickerBooks, Business Cards and MiniCards. And – added bonus – her identity flows flawlessly into her website. Great work Steph – you’ve got some MOOlah heading your way to help …Continue reading this article…
