"A visit to YOE! Studio explains a lot - it's the physical
embodiment of a wildly creativeand eclectic man.
We love YOE! Studio's work and their approach to creativity!" - Geraldine B. Laybourne, Chairman & CEO, Oxygen Media
AKA Gerry, The Boss Lady
YOE! FAMILY ...is just like any other family, except for the
part about being related. We've got designers (the best in
the biz), marketing mavens, computer whizzes, witty writers,
and project managers to keep 'em all in line (a gentle tap
on the nose with a rolled up newspaper usually does the trick).
STATEMENT Our mission is to deliver innovative excellence to
our clients. We're committed (not to be confused with having
been committed) to bringing humor and fun to the work we do
(unless you hate humor and fun...in that case, so do we).
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!
GUSSONI Better known as Queen of the Universe, Clizia got her art
degree from the Alessandro Caravillani School in Rome -- one of the
best schools in Europe (or so she says...really though, would we know
if she's lying?). She founded and directed Sei Matto? Studio, which
specialized in the entertainment and recording industries, and co-produced
a cartoon festival in Lucca, Italy, in 1992; it was there that she
met Craig Yoe, and a year later they merged their bi-continental creativity
to form YOE! Studio!
