Persona Draft

I made my persona poster about a week back but didn’t post it because I wasn’t happy with it. There is still a lot I want to change but I’m having trouble deciding what to do, so feedback would be highly appreciated.

I am mostly an internet lurker and my favourite site to lurk is youtube. I consume a lot more video content than any other kind and I have roughly outlined the percentage of time I spend on each of my social networks in the poster below.

Because I spend so much time on YouTube I thought it would be interesting to theme my poster around the site but I’m kind of worried it’s too text heavy and that I should incorporate more infographics. Please let me know in the comments, or on Google+, if you can think of any other suggestions.

Side note: The QR codes don’t lead anywhere. I will connect those to the blog posts for assignment one later.

Also, are there any important sections that I left out? Or did incorrectly?

  1. I love the Youtube theme, it’s so cool. I like the idea of scrolling down to read more information. If you are worried about not having the correct information, here is a description taken from the criteria sheet about what you need to include;
    • demographic information including
    • age, gender, educational
    • background, some personal history
    • behaviours and practices
    • motivations for use
    • goals
    • emotional and psychological factors
    • platforms used
    • methods of access (including devices used)
    • other details commonly included in persona
    I also maybe would include some more pictures as it looks a little bit plain 🙂 But overall great job, I think its a clever idea 🙂 Also here is a link to the criteria sheet, where I got that list from.

  2. I’m going to include a couple of examples in the general feedback about where I think you can use images instead of text, but it won’t fit with your use of comment boxes… Anyway, give it some thought.

    Have you thought about putting your photo and info about you as a cover image on the video? That would free up some real estate.

    1. Thanks for the feedback. 🙂

      Even though it doesn’t fit with the theme I was thinking about changing some text to info graphics anyway, because I could already tell it was too text heavy and no-one was going to read it. I will keep your feedback in mind when I make adjustments.

      I’m not 100% sure what you mean by using my photo and info as a cover image though. I have made the ‘video’ smaller to free up real estate and I’m currently using that as a kind of graph/diagram about my different network usage. Also, I am trying to keep in mind that the poster will be quite big when it’s on the cube. And I’m kind of hesitant to make my photo larger because it will pixelate and also I don’t really want a huge photo of myself on the cube. ^^;
