When DNA 11 was looking to create a business card we knew it has to be personalized and very custom.  After all, we create the world’s most personalized art. So we turned to Moo.  A very cool company that lets you make personalized business cards using a bunch of images that you can pull from your Flickr account or just about anywhere. What makes these cards different is that every card can have a unique image on the back of  it. So awesome! – and worth every penny. The quality is best I’ve seen- colors so pure you would swear they are using an offset printer to make these.  If you’re a designer, an artist, or a photographer these are the cards for you.

I have to say that Moo is a wonderful company. I love their website, their passion, their packaging and the customer service is top notch. Everything we strive to be too.

If you are looking to get business cards done just go to Moo and check them out.  They are also giving DNA 11’s  friends and clients 15% off any order of 50 or 200 cards. We’re not getting any commissions from this. This is a special offer from DNA 11 and Moo because we like you. 🙂

Follow this link to get the MOO discount. Valid until June 2! Use MOO discount code “DNAMOO” for 15% off.

If you want to get the ultimate personalized business card contact us and we can add your DNA or fingerprint to the back of your card.

Check out the cards we made with Moo below.

After three beautiful months in sunny Los Angeles the time has arrived to “pop down” our temporary pop-up gallery. By all measures it was a huge success. Hundreds of guided tours, piles of media and  a great wrap up party co-hosted by our friends of 944 Magazine ensured we went out with a bang!  We made lots of fantastic friends in Los Angeles and we’ll be back soon.

Here are some of the pictures from the DNA 11 / 944 Magazine event. Many thanks to GreenSUV for providing the transportation, HOPE Wines for supplying the wine, Poixen (for the delicious pisco sours) Carly Harill from 944 for helping to coordinate everything and of course our PR firm RF-PR.

LACMA Lights

LACMA Lights

LA has some serious art museums my favorite so far being the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Recently I had the opportunity to spend a day touring the museum. Nothing inspires me more than seeing the works of some of the greatest modern artists of the century.

One of the more fun exhibits was the BMW Art Cars. Artists included: Frank Stella, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, etc. I’d love to do a BMW art car one day. I’m a pretty big fan of BMW as a company and I’ve owned several Beemers so far including an M3 that is currently in storage back in Canada -hmmmmmmm ideas anyone?

Check these out:

There are many sections of the Museum where you are not allowed to take pictures but I managed to take this picture of a Marc Rothko – he is absolutely one of my favorite artists. In fact, it was his art that inspired us to see art in DNA images. The MoMA also has an impressive collection of Rothko paintings LACMA only has a couple but I love this one:

It’s that time of year again – time to go out and find the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Whether it’s a Valentine’s gift for him or for her; this year is the year to move past the classic chocolate, candles, and flowers by finding something you know they’ll remember for years to come.

Lately the biggest craze has been finding your loved one that perfect personalized gift and for years this meant a key chain with a name engraved or the ever popular “World’s Best Boyfriend” mug. Well, lately the bar has been raised and now you can name a star after your loved one  or even purchase them an acre of land on the Moon with the Lunar Registry.

Although both are really cool concepts – do you think that we’ll be packing up and moving to the Moon to make use of that acre any time soon? That I’ll leave to you… But while you think about it… why not find the ideal Valentine’s Day gift personalized for him or for her with a piece of personalized DNA Art from DNA 11.

The DNA Mini Portrait is a great gift for the man looking for the latest in decor as it brings together art, technology, and pop culture at an affordable price. Measuring just 8”x10” the DNA Mini Portrait is perfect for the office or on a bedside table.
KISS Portrait
And for the perfect gift for her this Valentine’s give her more than just a kiss… immortalize it with the KISS Portrait, from DNA 11. Add your lips and her lips on the same canvas and choose from lots of color combinations and sizes. DNA 11 has partnered with M·A·C Cosmetics and a portion of the sale of every KISS Portrait will go towards the M·A·C AIDS Fund.

So now you’re probably asking yourself how you surprise someone with a portrait like this, and on top of that, how do you get someone’s DNA or lip print without them knowing? Not to worry, that’s been thought of too and it couldn’t be easier. No, you won’t have to sneak into their bathroom and take a piece of hair from her brush or secretly find a way of getting the lip print.

All you have to do is order the gift kit; complete with a DNA gift card, instructions, collection kit and everything else they need to get started on the piece you selected. It even comes in a nice metal box so they have something to open on Valentine’s. If you really aren’t sure what they want you can order gift certificates too. It will be sent over to you for wrapping or sent right to your loved one by mail, or even by email, with a message from you.

So this Valentine’s Day forget the bubble bath and the roses. Find your loved ones a truly personalized, one a kind gift and buy some DNA Art from DNA 11. There is still plenty of time to order and have your perfect gift ready before Valentine’s Day.
