Why use it

  1. Craft authentic personas faster with AI doing the heavy lifting, and stay in control with options to tweak the personas along the away. E.g. I want more or less detail.

  2. Frees up the design team so you can spend more time aligning on which personas to run with, combine or adapt. 

  3. Bring emotions to life in your personas and images so you instantly feel a connection with them  

When to Use it

  1. When you need to align on who you are solving for (customers, employees, citizens etc) and connect with their reality.

  2. Post qualitative research where you want to synthesis the transcripts and generate personas quickly, but not sacrifice the quality

  3. Stuck, with no time for research, create assumption based personas in an instant.

Designers wanting to create businesses, products, services and experiences that people crave.
