Jim Henson started working as a puppeteer in 1954, a fair 40-50 years before many of us even considered User Experience as a career. He did, however, take it upon himself to apply many of the core principles that UX Designers are falling love with today (or are at least using as part of our everyday lives). Hang out for 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, that promises to even leave Waldorf and Statler happy.

And yes, there will be muppets.

    • #UXMuppets | @russu (So What?) Jim Henson made sketching and prototyping a constant part of his thinking process. He continually evolved everything he worked on. He hacked things together. He made it up as he went along. As a relatively new industry, so do we.
