How to Create Your Own Persona

Step 1: Creating a Persona Header Image

The header image is displayed as the background of the top of the browser window, nestling in behind the toolbars, address bar, search bar and the tab strip. It will be anchored to the top-right corner of the browser window.

  • View a sample Persona Header here.
  • View the sample Persona Header as seen in XP, Vista, and OSX.

  • Dimensions should be 3000px wide x 200px high
  • PNG or JPG file format
  • subtle, soft contrast images and gradients work best
  • highly detailed images will compete with the browser UI
  • Firefox may reveal more of the lower portion of the image if it or an extension adds another toolbar or other UI element to the top of the window
  • the right-hand side of the image should have the most important information - as a user increases the width of the browser window, the browser reveals more of the left-hand side of the image
  • images must be no larger than 300kb in filesize
  • images over 3000px x 200px will not be approved
  • never use artwork/logos/photography that you do not have the legal rights to use
