Accenture this week opened a Fjord design studio in Japan. It’s the first Accenture’s Fjord design studio in Japan. The new studio is located at the Accenture Interactive Studio Tokyo in Azabu, Tokyo, and is led by Bansho and Eduardo Kranz.
Accenture says Fjord Tokyo designers will bring design-led strategy, service design, and organizational / cultural innovation.
Accenture has over 1,200 designers in 33 studios worldwide. Fjord became part of Accenture Interactive in 2013.
“Our diverse and skilled designers from around the world share a common passion: to make Japanese lives better. We look forward to advancing the world’s leading ‘Made in Japan’ brands on their paths to innovation, right here from Tokyo,” said Kohei Bansho, studio lead of Fjord Tokyo.
