Description of the method

Persona Interviews aim to build an understanding of users, what they are trying to achieve and what challenges they encounter. Persona Interviews are best run alongside persona surveys to understand the ‘why’ behind the ‘what’ that’s learned from the survey. Persona interviews are best run at the beginning of the design process to build understanding and empathy for the users.
