Managing Director, Lead – Accenture Federal Studio
Tim Irvine leads the Accenture Federal Digital Studio (Studio) where a dedicated team of professionals work together with leaders across the U.S. federal government to design and deliver the digital solutions agencies need to advance their mission and serve customers differently. In this role, Irvine leads a diverse, interdisciplinary Studio team that helps agencies navigate the rapidly evolving technology landscape with a consistent lens toward real human impact, by designing and delivering meaningful experiences for citizens as they interact with their government.
The Studio, located in the heart of Washington, D.C., continuously evolves and integrates the dynamic practices of service design, data science and rapid prototyping with emerging technologies. It helps clients deliver better outcomes by transforming customer and workforce user experiences at a speed and scale beyond what is possible with outdated methods. It also helps agencies embrace emerging technologies and apply successful approaches from the private sector.
Irvine brings deep experience with human-centered design and a commitment to solving problems in new and innovative ways. He previously served as Fjord’s head of design for North America. He joined the Fjord team after Accenture’s acquisition of Acquity Group in 2013, where he was the chief experience officer. His nearly three decades of experience began with a study of industrial design, which sparked his ongoing interest in combining human insights to creative thinking in order to solve complex problems—independent of the medium.
Tim has been awarded multiple times for creativity and efficacy, is a frequent judge of design competitions, has been interviewed by organizations like Forrester, AdAge and Communication Arts, has spoken at conferences on design and innovation, and has served on the Chicago board of the AIGA.
Tim recharges from work by spending time with his wife and three daughters—whether that be the vicious cycle of cooking, eating and exercise, travel, or collaborating on art projects with his people. Getting his 1980 Vespa P200 to run consistently would be considered a long-term goal.
