A Whole Herd of Moo



I've been a huge fan of gurruilla marketing for the past 2 decades. Knowing full well that locally, it's the small things that seem to make the difference in how new veiwers find my work. Over the past 20 years I've really enjoyed creating the new support medias that cater to my diverce nitche markets. It's been a gambit of stickers, wheat paste posters, silkscreened canvass, spray paited stencils, art magnets, postcards splits, and now... MooCards.



I'm sure good amount of you know exactly what MooCards are. For anyone new to the name, these are 28mm by 70mm duoble sided collectable bussness cards printed on a high quality card stock. You can buy them in lots of 100 with dozens of different designs in each lot. It's the Online market that makes this media such a success. Personally I find that the odd size contributes to the success of the media. People really enjoy the smaller size of the cards. And hey... different is good, and when it's combined with a decent set of designs... a good Moo goes a long way.


The reason I'm working to develope this media up into something that I can use is that I've been given an oppertunity to attend a black tie meet and greet as a guest artist at KVIE's pre-veiw event for their telivised Art auction at the end of August. (Obviously the orginizers have never met me...) This is a PBS fund raiser. I've not a TV watcher anymore, but my children are, and as an enthusiastic suppoter of Public Television, I'm thrilled at being selected as a contributing artist for this event.

beautifully designed cards... i'll have to look up these moocards. i'm handy with photoshop so it should be a breeze. of course you're pots are really nice too and what better visuals that they? looks like the demonstrations in the next post were fun to attend too. i wish i had some voulkos stories but all i have is a voulkos student story but it's along the same lines as a voulkos story. too long for a comment tho.
