Visiting Faculty Spotlight - Craig Yoe

Better known as C.E.YOE, Craig's done it all. Early in his career, he was Senior Designer for toy think tank Marvin Glass & Associates, where he worked on toys like Cabbage Patch Kids and My Little Pony (he also liked to play with My Little Pony, but that's another story). He was recruited by Jim Henson to be Creative Director and later VP/General Manager of the Muppets, working on everything from TV shows to theme parks. After Henson's death, Craig declined a lucrative job offer from Disney to make his own magic with Clizia Gussoni and YOE! Studio

Advertising Design students in Craig Yoe's interactive sessions on creativity and brainstorming techniques had fun creating their toys to share with Craig, their class, and possibly the rest of the world!
