Using Personas in the Design Process of Digital Exhibit Interactives


The CMME project created these personas, or hypothetical archetypes of real users, to guide the design process of the prototypes produced during the Prototyping Workshop. The personas were created using real data from 11 Museum of Science research and evaluation studies. Personas can be useful in the early stages of design but should never be considered a replacement for prototype testing with real users of your target audience. Additionally, these personas were based on Museum of Science audience data and are not meant to be used externally or recycled for other projects.
