Igniting Empathy Through Personas + Experience Maps
We began with a remine, reviewing their existing research and building our initial hypotheses. Then, we spoke with the people who matter most. We used both static and recurring text, video and photo-based tasks on our Fieldnotes platform to dig deep into each segment’s values, motivations and behaviors that frame how and with whom they source their food.
The analysis process was intense to say the least (and we enjoyed every minute of it!). In the end, we delivered 6 Films, 6 One-page Personas, 6 Segment Decks, 6 Food Occasions Tables, 6 Journey Maps and 1 Segment Comparison Deck… and a partridge in a pear tree.
We identified and pulled apart the most meaningful differences across the six segments that we knew our client could immediately action against. We learned about who each segment was, the texture of their lives, the role that food played, their approach to cooking, and how all of it reflected in what they look for in a grocery shopping experience.
