I've never used Spark before and can see so many uses for it in my Graphic & Interactive Design classes.
Week 1 Assignment
Define a Challenge + Build Personas
I'm concerned over the complexities of building personas. As a design instructor I have been aware of them for some time, but as I read more about them, the time and in-depth commitment to creating them is a bit concerning. To this point I have taught my students how to define an audience via demographics and psychographics using profiling. Personas appear similar, but then there's a great deal of "storytelling" involved. It just seems to be an extra step that may be a waste of time. I am required to work on personas as part of this course, so of course I will give it a try, and I'm hoping I can see it's value in the end.
