General Assembly – Personas Bootcamp

Posted on September 8th, by coco in CX, UX. No Comments

This is the class slide-deck for the workshop when I am teaching at General Assembly about Persona creation and usage of them within the User Experience practice. I would love to hear feedback as I am always looking to improve the outcome of this particular class.

Agenda will be:
• Why personas are a powerful tool for product development
• Types of field research methods
• How to analyze the data collected
• Create personas and scenarios
• How to use personas effectively

Remember, this is a boot-camp so you will be practicing persona-creation activities in this workshop and have a lot of fun by meeting new people and gaining interesting perspectives.

Next Bootcamp session on February 25, 2016 in Sydney, limited spots so book now!

By organising and facilitating internal workshops, I was able to prioritise the more common usage patterns and design the information architecture and experience accordingly. This was followed by high fidelity designs and reviewing the brand designs by other designers.

Banzai is a sports aggregator website created for Yahoo!7 that aims to allow other sports websites to feed into this portal. Users will find content easy to digest, follow and stay informed on the sport that is important to them.

Banzai gives them a “home base” where they can easily keep up with weather conditions, events, results , news, and organisations central to the enjoyment of their sport.

Plus, they can choose to get updates on topics they want to follow and share their own perspective on articles, videos, or even local restaurants…all from one convenient place.
