That’s right, a new pharaoh has been crowned! A few weeks ago we asked you to reimagine Cleopatra’s branding. What would the last Pharoah of Egypt’s branding look like? How would she use Stickers to network? And would she *constantly* be instagramming pictures of the pyramids?
We’ve had loads of fantastic submissions (we’re always amazed how creative you all are *hides own stick-man-drawing entry*) and earlier this week we sat down with a small judging team (think X-factor but without the cameras and audience) and our graphic designer Jovanna to pick our worthy winner. So without further ado, it’s time to announce the winner of the MOO Cleopatra sticker …Continue reading this article…
We love discovering new businesses that you guys have got kicked-off and love it when your creative use of MOO Products has been some small part of a success story. That really is the icing on the cake. (CAKE! Did someone say cake?)
So when we decided that we wanted to open a shop, pretty much the first thing (after deciding that there were going to be cookies) was to ensure that you, our customers, and your businesses took pride of place.
Last month, you helped us kick off 2013 with our 5 Card Pitch competition, which was great fun. Why stop there, we asked ourselves. It’s been a while since we asked you to show us your creativity and carry out some rebranding in a celebrity themed competition. So who better to undergo a MOO makeover than the Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra (a.k.a CEO of Nile Enterprises).
We like to think that if MOO had been around a few thousand years ago, Cleo would have been a MOO fan. After all, she was a powerful (business) woman, and might have used Round Stickers to seal her papyrus …Continue reading this article…
Obviously you want people to open the present they’ve received or parcel they’ve ordered – but if you’ve done a great job with the packaging, they’ll probably think twice about ripping the paper off without taking the time to admire the effort!
Once again, we turn to our creative community for inspiration – because while we make the cards, we never stop learning ways to use them from you. And these three examples are a really good start to unleashing your pretty packaging potential.
Despite not having the scariest of product ranges (what could be scary about Business Cards?) we do quite enjoy Halloween here at MOO HQ. Mainly because it gives us an excuse to dress up in silly costumes and eat lots of tasty treats.
And with fright night only a couple of weeks away, we’d thought we would ask for inspiration from our wonderful customers. We asked you to show us your uses of MOO products in your Halloween celebrations. And we were absolutely delighted with what you showed us. Here are our favourites.
A few weeks ago we asked you to design a sticky label for Leonardo Da Vinci. Drum roll please… It’s time to announce the winner of the design-a-sticky-label-for-Leonardo-Da-Vinci-competition (we really are excellent at coming up with snappy, memorable names for things at MOO)!
We were really amazed at the number of submissions that were attractive and intelligent (two adjectives we like to think also apply to the MOO Crew) and we have whittled them down to select a winner.
After much deliberation and hours of sifting through great big sacks full of postal entries (OK, we lied – emails) we’re very excited to announce that Micha Lema has been selected as the winner! We loved the fun mix of old and modern, …Continue reading this article…
I had a peculiar dream one night, where a bunch of little fluffy white bunnies were following me around. They didn’t do much, as bunnies do, they just looked up at me with their black peppercorn eyes and hopped after me where ever I went. I could never figure out what they wanted, if they were evil spy bunnies or just some cute company to make me feel less lonely?
When I woke up in the morning I kind of missed them, somehow I quite enjoyed their presence. So I thought that it would be nice to make some bunny stickers and place them around the office. They appear in odd places, where you …Continue reading this article…
Buongiorno, designers! It’s time for the next celebrity cards competition. We’ve chosen the king of designers, and not a bad painter either, Leonardo Da Vinci. This time we’re adding a little twist; we’d love to see your ideas for sticky labels for Leo.
Sticky labels are a great way to add a customised signature to documents, letters, in fact, just about anything! They’d be practically perfect for our friend Leonardo’s sketches, paintings and anatomical drawings.
Here’s what we’ve come up with for Leonardo’s label:
Right on the Mona-y, don’t you think?
Every design we receive will be entered to win $300 cash and $100 to spend at MOO, so simply email your Leonardo …Continue reading this article…
We’re big fans of Business Cards here at MOO, but we’ve also got a fondness for stickers. Especially when we see our customers using them in creative ways.
Who would have thought a simple sticky label could have so many uses and be the perfect compliment to branding your business? From mailing labels, to miniature CVs and even a sticky business card that you can hand out with your other marketing material (it’s much less likely to get lost).
Here’s some fantastic examples we’ve seen for MOO stickers out in the wild:
When wood is your business, a rectangular sticker Business Card is the perfect way of promoting yourself on unusual materials
Last month, we set out our third Celebrity Card challenge and asked “what would Christopher Columbus have? We were really excited to see the entries fly in and there were some absolutely fantastic designs sent through. From ships to compasses, pictures of Columbus himself and the occasional map, so much thought had gone into what Business Cards Christopher Columbus would hand over.
Monika was left with a tough job of picking a winner, however, we’re glad to announce that Mal Webster has been chosen as the winner of the Christopher Columbus competition. Mal’s design caught Monika’s eye with a style appropriate for Christopher Columbus and well considered details (which made us giggle). Mal wins $300 …Continue reading this article…
Every week we see lots of different, creative and exciting businesses choosing MOO for a whole range of reasons. Recently inspired by TEKSTArtist’s miniature Business Card art prints, we’ve decided to hunt down some more artistic MOO customers and see what they’ve created.
Jun Arita is a Japanese pop artist who’s work mixes elements of Pop Art, Traditional Japanese Art, Kanji (Chinese characters used in Japanese writing) and graffiti. His brightly coloured MiniCards caught our eye …Continue reading this article…
We always love to hear about your businesses and success stories here at MOO, but we understand that it isn’t always plain sailing, which is why we asked you to share your biggest business mistakes with us on the MOO Facebook page.
There were over 60 suggestions, ranging from the insightful to those that raise a smile – and all of them are worth considering when building your business.
As with all our competitions, there has to be a winner, and it was really tough to single out just one. But we eventually settled on Stuart Shevlin’s entry:
The fact this is such a simple mistake to …Continue reading this article…
We were thinking about inspiration last week at MOO HQ and who, or what, has inspired us. Our list included authors, with Roald Dahl and Julia Donaldson getting a mention, as well as musicians as diverse as Brian Wilson and Beyoncé and designers such as Jessica Hische and Josef Müller-Brockmann.
Not wanting to have all the fun ourselves, we decided to ask the folks on MOO’s Facebook page who inspired them and of course, we’d pick one of our favourites to win some MOO goodies. It was a tough choice but eventually we settled on Whitney-Anne Baker’s inspiration – her old headmaster! Congratulations Whitney-Anne.
Of course, we couldn’t …Continue reading this article…
Given that it’s small business week, we recently decided to pose a simple question on the MOO Facebook page – what was the best piece of business advice you’d ever heard? The response was absolutely outstanding with over 300 of you sharing your thoughts and suggestions.
Having gone through them all, we’ve decided that we should offer up a prize to Sandrine Cousette Franchet, who shared the following piece of advice:
Of course, with so many entries, we couldn’t go without mentioning a few other fantastic pieces of advice that were entered, and a big thank you to everyone who took the …Continue reading this article…
We have been inspired by the post-it window designs appearing in Shoreditch, where our office is located. So, we wanted to make our very own, with a MOO twist of course.
Having pixels and 8 bit computer games in mind, the design team started pixelating the animals of MOO’s four in-house developer teams (shark, feret, bear and eagle), mainly using MOO brand colours. It became a 7 meter wide MOOsaic made out of 34 MOO StickerBooks (3000 stickers in all) and custom-made magnets to fit. Also, we used a few Round Stickers and Rectangular Labels stuck on magnets for the team names and weekdays. The board is used by the developers for an easy overview of projects …Continue reading this article…

Tasmin: New Zealand
Drinking my mid-morning coffee I was browsing through some of your fantastic #CityStickers entries and noticed how a certain big country (that’s you America) has totally got stuck in (sorry) these past few days! Of course I just couldn’t keep it to myself and thought I’d share my finds with you on our blog:
Gina: Elmira, New York
‘Start as you mean to carry on’, that’s how the saying goes, right? Well, the last couple #CityStickers round ups have been grouped in definite themes (the great outdoors and, of course,food) and I’m sticking to my guns!
Representing the great outdoors we’ve got Rita making all of us in the UK office jealous with her Portuguese beach shot and Bill representing Connecticut’s natural beauty. Food is covered by HerArtSheLoves showing her handmade robot balancing on a Florida orange. We’ve also got a new theme emerging in the form of travelling, with bearandrobot showing us how often they’ve left the UK archipelago (um, jealous?). Heather takes it a stage further and goes all multinational on us by …Continue reading this article…
Keep those entries coming in! We’re absolutely loving what we’re seeing, hence we’ve decided it’s time again to round up and show off a selection. Last time it seemed food was very much on the mind of you intrepid City Stickers. This time however, we’ve noticed another wholesome pattern emerging: animals and the great outdoors. A special round of applause please for Pie, the patient thoroughbred and willing sticker model for his owner Juliette’s photo!
Oh yes, and there’s less than two weeks left now, so if you’d like to enter the competition all you need to do is this:
1. Stick ANY MOO sticker on something particular to your city or country
2. Take a picture with …Continue reading this article…
With just two weeks to go for the #CityStickers competition you’ve been getting your entries in thick and fast these past few days. And, we must say, we’re beginning to see a foodie theme emerging in the subjects you’ve chosen: Tortilla, capuccino, coconut slice and beer. Nice to see that you share the same loves as the MOO Crew!
If you’d like to enter the competition all you need to do is this:
We’re then tasked with the tricky job of choosing 20 winners, who will receive $200 / £125 / €140 …Continue reading this article…
