The tradeshow industry produces over 600,000 tons of waste annually, the equivalent of 1.5 times the weight of The Empire State Building (according to data from a 2012 report from Smash Hit Displays). It’s hard to get that kind of image out of your head.

It was with this issue in mind that sisters-in-law Renee and Stephanie Hansen co-founded SpinFish Event Solutions – a business that strives to take event leftovers and re-use them, donate them, upcycle them, and freecycle them – anything to keep them from ending up in over-crowded landfills. They filled us in on that “aha” moment that …Continue reading this article…

Time to find out what Bowie and Mr. Squiggles were thinking

January 2014, by Jon | 1 Comment – latest by Jill

We’re suckers for a competition, so during a rather festive photoshoot in December, we decided to combine our love for the adorable Bowie and Mr. Squiggles with a caption contest.

Dressed to impress in their finest hand-knitted garments from our lovely friends Wool and The Gang, Bowie and Mr. Squiggles strutted their stuff for our photographer.

They seemed pretty happy on the day, though of course we can’t really tell, because as you know – dogs can’t talk. So we started wondering… what are they really thinking about? Our only idea was that perhaps they were undercover and plotting the end of the world. Thankfully, your suggestions were a bit more realistic.

Without further ado, …Continue reading this article…

One of the most interesting parts of any business’ story is where the founder was struck by an idea that they had to made into reality, or the life changing answer to a question they hadn’t even asked suddenly dropped into their minds. We call it the eureka moment (though we’re yet to come across another person besides Archimedes who had theirs in the bath…)

Welcome to The Eureka Diaries, a series of real life accounts from MOO customers running successful businesses, telling us all about that unforgettable moment that propelled a simple idea into a fully fledged business.

Talking about a New Year’s resolution

January 2014, by Simon G | 6 Comments – latest by Anna Sircova

Setting individual New Year’s resolutions can help you change or improve parts of your personal life – so why not do the same for your business?

Whether your business is well established, brand new or just a year in, it’s a great idea to use this time of year to pick an area that needs a little work, and find a way to improve it. You’ll make your business more efficient, profitable and altogether better and what better way to start the year?

There are a lot of areas in any business that even just a little bit of TLC would make all the difference. So without further ado (or procrastination!), here are our top five to get …Continue reading this article…

Announcing Santa’s business Card Winner!

January 2014, by Jamie | 3 Comments – latest by BUSINESS CARDS

Back in December, we challenged you to help redesign the business cards for a pretty important guy – that’s right, we’re talking about Santa Claus.

It’s fair to say it’s been a pretty busy few weeks for everyone. Santa has been on his annual trip around the world while we’ve been munching lots of Chocolates and mince pies!

So we think the perfect way to kick off the New Year is by announcing the winner of our Santa needs you competition. There were Santa puns, North Pole jokes and even cats dressed as Santa – which all made for a pretty tough judging task.

But that’s enough with the suspense! Without further ado, here are the winners of …Continue reading this article…

So… the big day is nearly here. For most of us it’s (nearly) time to wind down and enjoy the festivities that are about to begin. Maybe enjoy a mince pie or two, or have a little festive tipple in front of the TV to celebrate Christmas Eve.

But for one person (and his many helpers), Christmas Eve is the busiest night of the year. Father Christmas and his reindeers have a very tough task on their hands, and with the world’s population bigger than ever, can he do it?

Of course he can! …Continue reading this article…

Okay, so don’t judge us… but we’re a *little* bit obsessed with Christmas jumpers – for us, the more reindeer and snowmen emblems the better. And because we love them so much, we thought it’d be a great idea to have a go at making our own!

Plus, in the seasonal spirit of giving, we wanted to give our very own Design Elves (AKA the creative team) a well deserved rest. They’ve been busy creating new Christmas card designs, decorating the office, and making the Festive Funk Machine! So …Continue reading this article…

MOO HQ has officially been Christmassed (that’s a real word, right?). We’ve been working hard to make the office look suitably festive. We admit, we were a little slow to get the decorations up, but now they are, the MOO Crew is feeling very Christmassy indeed.

In our reception area at MOO HQ, we’ve created our own mini Christmas tree forest. Complete with Christmas bauble Instagrams, it’s the perfect festive greeting in the morning.

We couldn’t just leave the decorations in the reception area though. We’ve …Continue reading this article…

MOO’s A to Z of Christmas

December 2013, by Jon | Add a comment

Lots of elements go into the mix at Christmas, from food, to decorations, to presents and snow. We wanted to capture them all, so we put our heads together to come up with our top festive moments from A to Z. So, without further ado, it’s time to delve into what makes Christmas Christmas for the MOO Crew…

A is for awkward relatives

We love them, but we all suffer from their questionable presents (reindeer socks anyone?), and even more questionable Christmas jumpers they wear.


B is for brandy

It’s the naughty festive tipple that seems to find its way into the cream, the Christmas pudding, the …Continue reading this article…

Introducing the MOO Awards’ new “One to Watch” category!

December 2013, by Simon G | 5 Comments – latest by Becky Westaway

We were overwhelmed with entries in every category for this year’s MOO Awards, and reading through them all, we realized there was one more category forming right before our eyes; businesses built around a brilliant, original idea that needed just another year or so to become a business powerhouse.

So without further ado, meet the MOO Award ‘One to Watch’ winner… Becky Westaway with Milly & Bear, whose reaction to winning was endearingly honest and heartwarming at the same time.

“There were moments when the tiredness of being a new mum, the loneliness of setting up a company and the frustration in trying to get the product right caused me to seriously consider giving up.” Becky revealed, before …Continue reading this article…
