Oliver Russell adds a trio of new talent

Boise’s Oliver Russell has recently added a trio of new folks to their team:

Senior Art Director Crissie McDowell brings more than 10 years of award-winning experience working with clients such as Blue Cross of Idaho, Simplot Food Group, and Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure®.

Stuart Walsh will serve as interactive developer and has nearly a decade of experience developing websites, interactive content and video games for agencies and clients including the J.R. Simplot Company and Aire rafts, among others.

Kevin Winslow is the firm’s new public relations and social media manager. Winslow comes from Idaho Power where he launched and managed the company’s social media channels. Prior to moving to Boise, he worked in Seattle as a senior social media analyst for Fortune 100 companies.

Said Russ Stoddard, founder and President of Oliver Russell, in a recent release about the new hires, “We’re really excited to expand our offerings to clients. These people know the area, they fit well with our firm, and they share our mission of furthering purpose-driven companies and causes.”

Congratulations to all.

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.
