More about us, more about you View the MOO Archives ›
One of the cool things about MOO products is that you can hand them to new people to introduce yourself, and you have the immediate potential of making new friends. Making new friends is nice. New friends make you smile – sometimes they even make you laugh. (Occasionally they send you sweets… not that I’m hinting or anything.)
For quite some time we in the MOO office have wondered exactly who it is that works over the road from us. Their office kind of looks into ours, and we can see enough of theirs to know they have a huge map on the wall. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could just reach over, hand them a MiniCard and say ‘Hi! …Continue reading this article…
Moo’s having a party – and we want you to join in the fun! At our parties in San Francisco and London we exhibited just a few different people’s cards. This time? This time we want to exhibit hundreds! We’re going to thread them together to make a HUGE banner, showcasing your fantastic photography, illustrations, and designs.
Want to exhibit your card as part of the banner and show your work to the world? There are 3 easy ways to take part.
1) Post us a MiniCard to:
The SXSW Banner-maker
MOO Print Ltd.,
6 Baker’s Yard,
(please note, we wont be able to return your card)
2) email the image you’d like on a card to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll use …Continue reading this article…
Or the Oyster, anyway. Not long ago, Meg Pickard, MOO friend, inventor of the anti-valentine card – and the MOOgnet – blogged about her Stickers, and the fact they’re the perfect size for an ‘Oyster’ card holder.
For the un-initiated, ‘Oysters’ are a London thing. No, it’s not a deep-seated love of expensive bivalve mollusks, merely the the crazy-spectacular name for bus/train pass, available from London Transport.
(Personally, I think they called it that because they planned it to go in a holder like this and they think that opening up the ‘shell like’ holder reveals the ‘pearl’ of a card inside. What do you think? Have I over thought this? Have you ever travelled in London? …Continue reading this article…
The arrival of a pack of MiniCards means different things to different people. For some, they’re new business cards to put in your pocket or bag. You whip them out when you need them, to remind people who you are and how to find you. These are a nice example, by twofivethreetwo:
For others, it’s a Valentine gift, like these. by The Warrior Design
or a wedding favour, like these, by Roger. (Who’s just started working at MOO! Welcome!)
Cris Rose uses them as a Mini-portfolio, for his custom toy designs…
And many other people use them as tags or thank-you notes to put in with their Etsy Sales. These are …Continue reading this article…
Eeek. We’re a bit late to wish you Happy Valentine’s Day in Europe, but don’t think that’s because we don’t care. We do. We’ve just been busy wading through all the piles of roses, chocolates and flowers delivered to the office… you know how it is. We’re such a good looking bunch it’s hard for people not to fall in love with us, really.
But enough about us, and more about you. Our designers have a few things they’d like to get off their chests…
In the grand scheme of things, and scientifically speaking, you’ve definitely achieved rock star status in our eyes. Yep, you really are more ‘B’ than ‘A’…
…So much so, you should probably …Continue reading this article…
A lot of hard work, a lot of late nights, and quite a few take-away dinners… but you knew that already, right?
Ryan Carson has made video with a few more useful tips – and includes MOO in the mix, which certainly brightened our day. As a (slightly ageing) web start-up ourselves, it was nice to know we can help other people out along the way.
MOO customers are people of many talents. Today, we salute those with aching legs, steely reserve, and warm clothing. Yes, we’re talking about the people in training for The London Marathon. (You need steely reserve and warm clothing to train in the not-so-sunny British weather. It’s freezing out there.)
The London Marathon raises millions of pounds for charity every year. Runners are actively encouraged to run in support of a charity, which really means getting people to sponsor you by any means necessary. Just Giving have taken a lot of the hassle out of this for people in the UK in recent years, by providing a simple way to enable friends to sponsor you online. You get a …Continue reading this article…
Oh yes! It’s taken a wee while, but we’re pleased to report we’ve now got a full range of leather MiniCard holders in stock, in a variety of colours.
We’ve got dark brown, dark blue, lemony yellow, pale green, pale pink, sky blue and white:
We’re also expecting to get some more felt holders in soon too, so we’ll have more than just black and red available!
And of course, our own MOO-made holders are also on their way. (If we have to hold our breath any more for these I think we’ll all pass out – but they are well and truly on the way, and we can’t wait.)
So, if you fancied a leather holder, don’t sit there …Continue reading this article…
What’s your favourite web app? The one you just can’t live without. Is your social life ruled by Facebook? Do you twitter, obsessively? Plan your holidays around your Dopplr friends and your tunes around last.fm?
Or… is it us? IS IT? Of course it is.
Either way, those nice folks over at Carsonified are doing a little poll, and they’d like your input. They want to find people’s top 10 web apps, and they’ll be announcing the results on 5th Feb. And why should you tell them, of all people? Well, because it’s quite interesting and I’d like to know the answer. Oh! And there’s also the chance of winning a Nintendo Wii!
So it was a little shocking to witness much wailing and gnashing of teeth when Kim, our Product Manager arrived in the office without her bag. You know, the bag that contains an Ipod Touch (borrowed), a Playstation Portable (also borrowed), an Ipod video, a Lomo Camera and regular stuff like cash, keys and a *really* nice pair of headphones.
She’d left it on the bus.
She was so upset, some of us even turned around in our chairs to see what all the …Continue reading this article…
