Unfortunately, my camera ran out of battery before getting to the store so I could not record anything with images. However, luckily enough I was able to get a selection of MOO products, a sample pack and also had chance to talk to one of the store employees about the competition and their usual customer profile.

The set of images below document the various business cards and sample pack that I was given while visiting the store.
Before visiting the MOO shop I was thinking of developing a sample pack similar to the one received from the MOO employee. However, after understanding that the company already have a well designed pack in circulation the idea lost relevance. Therefore, I decided to slightly change the direction of the project and focus on developing a different outcome as part of the campaign.
