A persona is a fictional person who represents a major user group for your site
Personas give design teams a way to look at a web site from a particular user group’s perspective
A fictional name and picture may help to make the persona seem more “real”
Using Personas: Activity He is a Minnesota resident moving to North Dakota to take a position as a bank manager in Minot. He needs to get a North Dakota Driver’s License. “ I’m going to be really busy with my new job. I hope I don’t have to take my driver’s tests all over again just because I’m moving.”
You are moving permanently to Aurora, Illinois (in the Chicago area). You currently hold a valid Minnesota driver’s license. Use the web site to find out where to go and what to bring to obtain an Illinois driver’s license. You want to find out whether you will be required to take a road test.
