1. Describe your experience of creating personas from different users’ perspectives gathered in the interview data. Was there enough commonality between the 4 people interviewed to form a coherent persona? Or did it make more sense to create a second different persona?
Our group had two interviews that were similar with one another, and the other two similar with one another. So initially, finding those commonalities were quite easy… but then when we developed the persona from the two interviews we realised that those two personas had some very different variables. If we had more data we could probably find a more prominent relationship to develop a more accurate persona to represent the user
2.Do you think your final persona(s) was successful in generating empathy with users? What would you change to make it better?
I believe our final persona was a great start to generate empathy with those users, but I would much prefer to collect more information delve deeper now that we know more about that representation of users. I would probably do a small group again before interviewing a larger range so that I can iterate the interview and I would also be very careful with my variables to try establish statistical significance with my user data.
