For our latest set of Business Card designs, which we’ve aptly named Bit and Pieces, there was a fair amount of destruction that had to occur before any creation took place. I’m always interested by the way things work, or why things are the way they are, take, for example, the ever-present mobile phone.
The mystery – a bit like invisible magic – inside products really fascinates me. When I was about to throw away a few broken old mobile phones that had accumulated over the years, it struck me that …Continue reading this article…
Last month we showcased some innovative Christmas and Holiday Cards that MOO Creative Director Matt G tracked down. This got us thinking; there must be hundreds of wonderful designs out there in the big wide world that Matt simply wouldn’t have time to track down by himself. So we asked our friends on Facebook and Twitter to show us what they’d seen or created.
We got so many responses that there’s simply not enough blog space to hold them all! We’ve picked just a selection of designs that really caught our eye. Without further ado, here are our top picks:
We loved …Continue reading this article…
I always appreciate receiving a handmade present, there’s something rather personal and special about it. When we decided to make new sets of Greeting Cards, I wanted to bring as much as possible of a handmade feel into my designs.
For inspiration I settled on one of the most iconic seasonal themes and symbols; the snowflake. Snowflakes are incredibly intricate and fascinating objects that always amaze me when I see them up close. ‘But how do I bring the human touch into a printed product?’, I asked myself. The answer to this question lies in the combination of paper and photography. I decided to create five different …Continue reading this article…
We just launched a new range of Greeting Card packs, and we’re rather pleased with them. It occurred to us, though, that we’re not the only ones who come up with creative designs. We’d absolutely love to see the cool company greetings you’ve sent and received or simply stumbled upon. You can share your finds with us by posting them on our Facebook page or by Tweeting them to us @overheardatmoo.
To get us started, we turned to Matt G – MOO’s very own creative guru (and fashion guru, have you seen those jumpers?) He thought he’d have a look around for how companies …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…
We’re here! After five weeks of watching your wonderful #CitySticker entries coming in the end is nigh. But there is still just time a.) for you to enter , and b). for me to indulge in another round-up of recent gems to land in our Flickr pool and on our Facebook wall.
Remember, you can still enter until 11.59pm PT today (15th August). We’re really enjoying this competition a lot and would love to see even more entries! In the meantime, take some inspiration from this bunch below:

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…
