Fueling our people’s passions
Fjord is commited to using human centered design to improve lives in the world at large. The Fjord Innovation Fund is a way for Fjordians to bring their great ideas to life. The proposals for projects come from our designers and our leadership oversee and select them with the help of the Fjord Evolution team.
The Fjord Innovation Fund’s goal is to extend the design discipline to underserved environments and populations. It also allows our people to follow their passions, apply their craft and engage their peers in what matters most to them, and it gives us the flexibility to engage in projects beyond our day to day client work.
Here are a few examples of recent Fjord Innovation Fund projects.

In the Fjord Fido Project we explored how could we re-think diabetes treatment and better support the families and friends of the patient. We have also investigated how we could help ALS patients regain control.
