With the growing number of active contributors (387) and registered members (4700 right now), we expect to outrun our current average upload of 4 projects a day. Keep up the good work. Read more >>

this happened UtrechtMIMOA at This Happened, Utrecht February 23rd

We're invited to speak at This happened - Utrecht #2, February the 23rd. This happened is an evening event where a couple of interaction designers, product designers, digital artists and performers from diverse industries speak about their projects. The main focus of This happened is on the story behind the work process of MIMOA and we'll share a lot of interesting details about the development and the necessary steps to bring the initial idea to a fully functional product.


Go Pro get in the pictureUse MIMOA for your business

We've recently started a new service on MIMOA: the Pro-account. With this paid service, architects can use MIMOA for much more than the 'regular' contributor. You could use MIMOA for your personal advertisement, as a notice board, to not only publish your projects, but also show your not-yet-finished work, competition entries and studies. Everything is possible with 4 freely-editable pages: you can promote your office, profile, your team, add contact details and even use the pages to find new staff. Especially in these times, a bit more publicity is more than welcome.

Get the attention of the international MIMOA audience, use it as your project database and forward your potential clients to your profile.
