FJORD APPOINT NEW REGIONAL DESIGN DIRECTOR
Richard Wilshire has joined Fjord, design and innovation from Accenture Interactive, as regional design director.
With a passion for all forms of digital interface and the interaction it affords brands and consumers, Wilshire will be based at the London studio. A creative leader with 20 years’ digital experience, he is tasked with evolving the organisation’s Digital Product Design and Development offering.
Prior to joining Fjord, Richard played a role in the progression of SapientNitro’s Experience Studio, using a holistic approach to gear a primarily user-centred design towards digital product design.
This work was later recognised globally, clinching award wins from Cannes, the One Show, and Bima, among others.
Joydeep Bhattacharya, managing director, Fjord Europe, Africa & Latin America, says, “Having worked with many technologies and navigated countless trends, Richard brings a wealth of valuable experience and knowledge to Fjord. We are really excited to see the direction Richard will take the team in.”
Wilshire comments, “Working with Fjord provides me with the opportunity to merge my experience with my personal design philosophy – making the complex appear simple and the intimidating seem easy.”
“Looking ahead, I’m excited about embedding myself within the Fjord culture and to working with one of the world’s foremost design and innovation organizations.”
