• Making Personas Work for You

    User personas versus marketing personas versus buyer personas, or maybe all in one? Interviews, eye-tracking, paper prototyping, focus groups, online surveys – all of the above? Build them into touchpoint maps, journey maps, service blueprints, empathy maps, other types of artifacts? There are lots of ways to use and scale user personas to meet the needs of your organization or your project. Katie Lukas from Cronin talks about how an agency approach to personas needs to be able to support a wide variety of budgets, project types, industry verticals, and degrees of client savvy. She provides different examples of persona types, how to customize the persona approach to meet specific needs, how to design and prototype persona templates, scalable research levels, and samples of what kinds of artifacts we might develop from those personas.

  • Connecticut Agency Continues to Evolve After 70 Years | Cronin

    In an industry that is often defined by its volatility, one Connecticut firm has not only stood the test of time, but continues to evolve to meet changing market demand and fuel growth decade after decade. Cronin, a digitally driven marketing agency that has been in business for 70 years, is rebranding the company to better reflect what it is today. “As our digital expertise has expanded, our entire offering has evolved and elevated along with it.
