When you’re starting a project or even when you’re in the middle of one, have you ever thought to yourself "who are we designing this for?". For a project to be a success, we must make sure our decisions are based on the needs of the user. So what do you do when you’re unsure who your users are or when you don’t have the time or budget for an extensive discovery to gather data to identify your target audience? Come along to Scott’s interactive workshop on proto-personas to join the discussion.
