Steve Tengler has been entertaining and informing us about some critical lessons in user experience over the last several months. You may recall Steve’s insights based on characters played by Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, Tom Hanks, Laura Dern and Jim Carrey. Perhaps you’ve even watched Steve present those insights live at Refresh Chicago just a short time ago.
Steve Tengler and UX Magazine just published another five User Experience Lessons from Hollywood. This time, inspiration arrived via the television and film characters portrayed by Canadian-turned-Hollywoodian, Seth Rogen.
What do characters from The Green Hornet, Horton Hears a Who!, Kung Fu Panda 2, Knocked Up and The Simpsons have to teach us about UX? Read Steve’s article to find out.
Stay tuned to Altia’s blog — because you never know when or where Steve will find his next inspiration! We’ll make sure to keep you posted on the latest!
