Four weeks ago, the Personas Team — with your support — released version 1.0 of the Personas experiment with a friendlier look and feel, improved functionality, and an expanded gallery of designs. Since the launch, Personas has been downloaded over 2.5 million times and has exceeded 1 million active daily users (see graph below from AMO). More importantly, we have welcomed over 3,000 new designers and over 5,000 new designs to the Personas community.
opportunities to collaborate with the Personas team
Members of the Personas community are now submitting designs faster than the Personas team can approve them, which has led to a large queue of designs waiting for approval. This is a nice challenge to have, and we are working diligently to evaluate and approve designs that meet the program’s terms of service. The immediate goal is to reduce the size of the approval queue. The near-term goal is to reduce the amount of time a community member needs to wait between submitting a design and being able to view that design in the gallery and share it with friends. If you are interested in collaborating with the Personas team on these goals, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
