In 1954, 40-50 years before most people knew about UX, Jim Henson was applying many of the core principals that UX designers today are using as part of our everyday work. If you’re a UX practioner, maybe all of the hours that you spent watching Sesame Street is finally paying off.
In “From Muppets to Mastery: Core UX Principles from Mr. Jim Henson,” Russ Unger takes a quick dive into the life of Jim Henson, with a view into his work from the perspective of how it pertains to what it is we’re doing today.
Russ is a UX Director for Happy Cog, a web design firm in New York City, Philadelphia and San Francisco. He is co-author of the book “A Project Guide to UX Design” for Peachpit Press (Voices That Matter) and is co-authoring a book on guerrilla research methods with Todd Zaki Warfel.
And yes, there will be muppets.
