New party venue!

July 2008, by Denise | 4 Comments – latest by James Darling

They said it couldn’t happen, they tried to cancel it, but the MOO Party Is STILL happening this Thursday night at a NEW VENUE!

Yes, just 2 days before our brilliantly planned party, The Ambassador (our previous venue) decided to cancel it. Luckily, you can’t keep the MOO Crew down when it comes to a drink with friends, so the our new venue is The Vibe Bar, Brick Lane.

If you’re not sure where that is, you’re in for a treat. It’s a great venue, easily reached from Liverpool Street tube and rail station. Follow the signs when you get to the venue, and we’ll see you there! And Don’t get side-tracked by a curry on the way, save …Continue reading this article…

Business Card Busy-ness

July 2008, by Denise | 7 Comments – latest by Robert

It’s all go at MOO Towers at the moment. We’re bug squishing (virtual, not literal), printing, packing and party-planning.

The party‘s shaping up rather nicely, so we’re hoping it should be lots of fun. If you’re in London next Thursday, come along for a drink – and if you’re quick, a wee bite to eat. If last years was anything to go by, it should be full of lovely people – and if you don’t know anyone when you get there, you should definitely make a few friends before you head off home.

In the meantime, it’s really exciting for us to see the beautiful Business Cards you’ve been making. These are a few great photos we’ve spotted recently …Continue reading this article…

Parties and Pixels, Fun and Formats, You and MOO

July 2008, by Denise | 7 Comments – latest by Teala

It’s already been over a week since the launch of MOO Business Cards. After taking a quick recovery lie-down, we’ve been busy fixing odd things and gawping at the amazing cards you’ve been making.

There are a few things we’re still working on, so if you see anything odd, please bear with us. If it’s *really* odd then please contact us and let us know the details. Sometimes things happen that we just can’t replicate and it’s your great feedback that helps to make things better.

There’s now an online template for Business Cards, for those who’ve asked. Like the templates for other products it’s the right size in pixels, millimetres and dpi, all you need to do is add …Continue reading this article…

Fond farewells, happy bonjours.

June 2008, by Denise | Add a comment

Our first intern has flown the nest. We knew this day would come – it’s kind of what interns do I suppose, but it doesn’t make it any better. Rui, who we introduced all those months ago has got a brand new job back in Japan. On the one hand, we’re really happy for her – the job sounds great – but we can’t help feeling a wee bit sorry for ourselves.

But, we shall let her speak for herself:

“Hi Moosters,
It’s very sad to announce that I have to leave MOO and cannot be one of the MOO staffs any more. I found a career opportunity at an international organisation, which deals with environmental problems in Japan. In …Continue reading this article…

Photoshop wizards, sharing spells

June 2008, by Denise | 9 Comments – latest by kristina

We announced MOO’s API the other week – which allows people with just a little tech knowledge to create cool apps that integrate with MOO’s process. If you don’t have the tech knowledge but still fancy making something cool, you could try using Photoshop instead.

Two talented MOOsters, Dawn Mikulich and Aral Balkan have posted their creative Photoshop templates online. Each produce very different, but very cool results.

First up, Dawn. A talented children’s photographer based in Chicago , Dawn recently made this set of MiniCards:

With beautiful bright images, the cards are split into sections, perfectly showcasing several photos at once. Dawn has kindly put the template online – and it sounds like it’s going …Continue reading this article…

Your Webby, our chocolate

June 2008, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by vzaar Jamie

It’s funny when you look round, realise your CEO isn’t here, and only figure out where he’s gone by reading the national press. Luckily for us, the mention is in a broadsheet, and no, Richard isn’t embroiled in some tabloid fiasco. He’s been at the Webby’s!

The mention was in the British paper, The Guardian, where UK blogger Zoe Margolis was live blogging the event. Richard was there to pick up the People’s Voice Award (that’s you) for Best Service (that’s us). It was super cool for us to even be nominated, let alone win, so we can only thank you again.

The Webby’s are famous for various things, not least the fact they insist on 5 word …Continue reading this article…

Announcing the MOO API

June 2008, by stefan | 2 Comments – latest by Designer-artist

One of those rare posts from the technology department. I’m very pleased to announce the MOO API. The API allows those with some programming skills to write programs that can specify all the data required to make an MOO product (including fully variable images AND text), and then redirect a user to the checkout process for that product.

At present, the API is in beta – we think it’s mostly done, but we might make a few changes before we ‘go 1.0′. We expect any changes to be backward-compatible at this point. What’s more, when we go 1.0, we’ll be sharing revenue back with the API key holders (and we’ll backdate for any packs made during the beta period). The exact …Continue reading this article…

Bring me sunshine

May 2008, by Denise | 5 Comments – latest by Katrine K

It’s been a really busy week at MOO towers, hence the slight lack of blog updates. Since the launch of the new-look Ready Made last week, we’ve all been heads down working on our latest Thing, which of course, we can’t talk about. But rest assured, it’s all good, and when we can tell you more, we will do.

We have one new addition to the team this week! Meet Sid:

He’s our latest front-end developer. Quite experienced, he can also speak French and German, so he’s helping out on any little localisation issues. He does talk a lot, but is always ready with good advice – you can see him helping Nicky here, while they grab …Continue reading this article…

New home, new homies

May 2008, by Denise | 9 Comments – latest by Georgi

We’ve moved! Not that far away from our previous office, but far enough to require a full investigation into local pubs and sandwich shops. I’ll keep you posted if we find anything spectacular. Our previous office was very nice – host to a lot of food…

a lot of birthdays…

Some sad times…

And some happier times…

We packed MiniCard Holders there:

We locked our CTO in the cupboard and refused to let him out,

All in all, we worked really hard.

But now, on to bigger and better things! Look at all this space:

It’s quite overwhelming…

Luckily we have tanks, to help with our global domination plan:…Continue reading this article…

We’re trying to learn your language…

May 2008, by Denise | 10 Comments – latest by Yana

As some of you might’ve already spotted, we’ve ‘localised’! What does that mean? Well, it means MOO is now available in more than one language. Since launch, MOO has shipped to countries all over the world, and little-by-little we’ve been learning, so we can speak to you in your own language too.

So far, MOO has been translated into French, Italian, Spanish and German. If your browser is already set for one of these languages, it should automatically appear in the language of your choice. If it’s not, you can switch languages by clicking the links at the bottom of every page.

As I’ve already mentioned, we are still learning, so if you spot something a bit odd …Continue reading this article…
