For the two personas I created for this application, I reflected a lot on the information that I gathered in the application. The personas were based on the data I found for users of technology in their age range.
I created one persona for a younger senior citizen who is more in touch with technology. I created the other persona for a older senior citizen who may use technology less and have some more trouble with it.
I used these two different personas because the application is being designed for senior citizens, however it is important to include features in the application that will satisfy both of the users needs.
I know these will be very helpful throughout my process in designing this application.
Here are the personas:
I decided to give my personas a redesign so the fit more into the style of my application. I also added a little more information, even though I was happy with the content already there. More information is better because the personas truly appear as a real user of the product.
Here is my updated personas:
