DaviesMoore has also found itself a new home, in Suite 300 of the 805 Idaho Building, on the corner of 8th and Idaho – 805 W. Idaho St.

About Us

The culture of animators, game developers and technical artists in Idaho is taking leaps forward. For years, these types have been scattered throughout garages, bedrooms and small independent shops with virtually no way to share, teach and network. Through IAAGI, Pixel Fish Studios will be working to bring those days to an end.

Pizza and beer drinks will be provided at the event. To RSVP, or for any questions you might have, email Stuart Walsh at Pixel Fish Studios.
