When I tell people that I’m studying part-time alongside a full-time job, people tend to look quite impressed; “Wow, how do you manage to fit it all in?” Many people say they’d struggle finding the motivation to study after a long day at the office. I always reply by saying I would probably feel the same, but luckily for me, I love my course and I love my job too – so it’s pretty easy to get motivated!
I’ve been studying towards a marketing qualification part-time since March last year, alongside my current job working as MOO’s Office Assistant. I’ve enjoyed getting involved with different aspects of MOO, all of which demand a …Continue reading this article…
Here at MOO HQ we’re always coming across things companies are doing that make us go WOW, whether or not it’s through the use of MOO products or just a great idea that we can’t help talking about.
Office space! Doesn’t sound that exciting does it? What about if I told you it was based in the heart of London in between Leicester Square and Covent Garden, taking up a whole third floor of a large building? Still No? What about if I said they have …Continue reading this article…
One way to make your designs and Business Cards stand out is a “less is more” approach that some of our creative customers have used to market their personal brand. As usual, these examples merely the tip of your creative iceberg – but here are a few that caught our eye.
Brand new customer Nate Imhoff chose to, in his own words “keep my collateral simple” with these clean, stark cards. Nate explains “I believe good design is good business, and giving my collateral too much personality could detract from my work, which I want to speak for itself.” We think you’ll agree, he gets his message across very well!
And of course, our creative community (that’s you!) has been in on the secret for ages. Here are just a handful of our favourites:
PHP Developer and self confessed “general geek” Ben Dodson uses no ordinary contact details, only a QR code on his Business Cards to help people he meets keep abreast of his many, many online projects and social networking profiles, including Twitter, Delicious, Facebook, and Flickr. Plus, the images show off all of his hobbies!
Every so often a tech startup comes along that’s just way too cool for school – in a good way of course! Our new partner, the funky West Coast based about.me is like that person in your life that takes one look at your messy room, and in fifteen minutes, has tidied your desk, filed all your papers and done your taxes without even breaking a sweat. You can see why we’d want to become partners with that person!
So what do they do that’s so cool? Well, for one thing, they allow you to create a profile page that collates all your online profiles – like Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, LinkedIn, plus any other work you’re involved …Continue reading this article…
New Year resolutions are one of those December traditions we never really give much thought, like mulled wine, roasted chestnuts and ugly Christmas jumpers, it just feels right. And they’re great because, in theory, you can decide to change anything, from the minuscule to the massive to the totally practical – the ancient Babylonians often resolved to return their neighbours’ farming equipment!
But if your resolution is something a bit bigger than going to the gym – like starting your own business – then sticking to it has significantly higher stakes! Surveys have shown that 3 out of 4 people break within the first few months.
So how do you give yourself the best shot at achieving your goal and building a …Continue reading this article…
It’s been a whirlwind few months here at The Business Card Project. We’ve kept our designers nice and busy redesigning some of the most boring business cards we could find. We just finished our last few redesigns, so be sure to check out our business card inspiration gallery. Now there’s really no excuse to have boring business cards!
We had a blast working with every company and think all the redesigns are remarkable. But which redesign do you think is the best? We’re torn, that’s for sure. So help us decide! Rate each ‘before and after’ using the star rating at the bottom of each gallery page and the company with the highest number of votes and the highest …Continue reading this article…
We had so much fun reading all the entries submitted and were absolutely amazed by all the clever ideas. Your ideas surprised us (in a good way) and taught us… a lot. So, thanks!

2nd prize: Yael Frankel, for her mini notebooks made with MiniCards
3rd prize: Julie Oakley, who shared the idea of corporate identity Business Cards
Grand prize: Lucinda Brown, for her fantastic …Continue reading this article…
We get loads of idea submissions from charities all across the world who use MiniCards, Business Cards, and even Postcards to help spread their word and raise money for charity. We think it’s a great idea too–check out these ideas from JustGiving. MiniCards and Business Cards are the perfect way to share the details of any charity, and are even better to help promote donation links!
But what do MOO-staches have to do with charity?
The MOO Crew had a blast growing moustaches last year in support of Movember so we thought it was only fitting to join the cause again this year. Using Movember designs, we created unique Movember-themed Ready Made MiniCards and Business Cards to help …Continue reading this article…
That’s right! We promised September would be full of surprises, and we meant it. First we launched our blogging competition, then we revealed our mysterious new Business Card holder, and just last week we joined forces with Picasa. So how could we end this super September without launching one more new product? We couldn’t and now we’re pleased to say StickerBooks are available in the US store. Yay!
What can you do with MOO Stickers? Loads of things! From branding and sealing, to tearing and sharing, the possibilities are endless. Take this example from Sarah Wilson of Hey Little Cupcake.
Sarah uses MOO Stickers to decorate and brand her packaging. …Continue reading this article…
