You say 'persona', I say 'person-ah'
Personas. They're alright. They're usually workmanlike: They do a job. But do they do enough? Let's talk about it.
With 16 years in the creative and tech industries as a developer, branding design and advertising creative manager, studio director, and design and development director, Simon is using that experience to designing and creating digital led experiences, products, and services at Studio of Things in Leeds, working with Linkdex, the NHS, Leeds City Council, and the University of Leeds. He still doesn't see the point in Samsung's internet enabled fridge.
