After reviewing my research I have picked out three personas:
I am glad to see that I am able to include the more experienced climber in my project after all because of ‘run out of options’. I am simplifying my problem statement in to these two points:
Problems to solve:
Hard to meet people of similar level or above to go climbing with
Not sure where to go
Solving these problems will, I believe, help with confidence and knowledge. I would like it to be easier for people who face similar issues to talk with each other. I am also proposing a solution that will give the more experienced climber more options than they have currently:
Proposed solution – a service which:
Lets you search and message people who like to climb near you who have a particular profile.
Lets you search for cragg locations nationally, by type of climbing and difficulty
(Lets you search for people who live near a certain cragg/ location and then message them.) Secondary
I was only able to pinpoint these findings after several attempts at goal writing for my project. This process really hi-lighted what the service could offer and what it should offer actually based on the user research. I go in to more depth about this process on the next post.
