Assignment: Fresh Perspectives

It’s time to get a fresh perspective!  Take a look at the pictures in your activity kit.  An experience as universal as going to bed—something that every single person all over the world does—can look very different for different people.  Understanding how one person’s circumstances and needs are different from another person’s is part of a designer’s job.  It helps them create solutions that work for a lot of people instead of just a few.  After discussing the pictures, use the enclosed persona cards (instructions and a sample persona are included) to tease out some of the ways in which the people you’re designing for might have different circumstances, needs, preferences, or habits.  This information could change your thinking about how to approach your problem!  Upload your persona cards under the appropriate activity on your team page.
