Fjord makes its Dublin debut in vibrant Silicon Docks; a design studio within a global multidisciplinary research and incubation hub
The new Fjord studio in Dublin is located at The Dock, Accenture’s multi-disciplinary research and incubation hub where the Accenture Innovation Architecture comes to life. Accenture will unite Fjord’s designers and creative technologists with engineers and experts in emerging fields like artificial intelligence and analytics. It will leverage the cutting-edge facilities and capabilities of these multi-disciplinary teams to offer innovation services to clients to help solve their most pressing business problems.
Prior to that, Ross consulted to DARPA, the US government defense research agency; was associate professor of industrial design at Rhode Island School of Design; principal research scientist at MIT Media Lab; and design lead at Motorola Futures Group.

“Dublin is a hub for global players as well as a burgeoning start-up scene here in Silicon Docks – it is at the forefront of design and many of the latest digital trends, making it a natural choice for our first Fjord studio in Ireland,” said Joydeep Bhattacharya, head of Accenture Interactive, UKI and managing director at Fjord. “We look forward to seeing Lorna and her team thrive in this innovative and inspiring environment as they create the next wave of digital experience.”
The Dock, which officially opened last week in the heart of Dublin’s tech quarter, is home to 200 designers, developers and digital experts representing multiple countries who co-create new digital services and solutions. In this dynamic environment, Accenture people collaborate with clients, universities and startups to investigate, develop and scale disruptive innovations for a mix of national and global brands.
