Design that changed the world: The (road)work of Margaret Calvert

February 2015, by emma | 2 Comments – latest by Keith


Design isn’t just about making things look nice. Truly great design solves problems, communicates messages and, in many instances, changes the way people think, act and live their lives. For General Assembly’s Laura Hasting (whose claim to fame is interior-designing Kevin Spacey’s house, no less) there’s one designer whose simple creations are as important today as they were when they left her drawing board over forty years ago. Here she tells us more about her design hero, Margaret Calvert.

Picture this. You’re cruising at 60mph up the M1, breeze in your hair, Elton on max, destination: holiday. Three hours and several rounds of Rocket Man later, you arrive. The evening is warm and there’s a …Continue reading this article…

Working for yourself: Advice from visionary designer James Victore

January 2015, by emma | 4 Comments – latest by Phil@JobdescriptionAndResumeExamples


Thanks to one-man creative whirlwind James Victore, our Luxe Project saw out 2014 with one hell of a bang. James’ type-tastic shots of eccentricity (a collection entitled ‘Your Work is a Gift’) were a big hit at MOO HQ – and now you can grab your own bunch of bright ‘n’ bold Luxe Business Cards, MiniCards or Notecards too. You’ll be doing your bit for charity at the same time, yay!  So, we know he’s an artist and author with world domination on his ‘to do’ list, but what don’t we know? We caught up with the self-confessed ‘firestarter’ to discover more about the man behind that awesome moustache.

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.
