Interactive • Artificial Intelligence • Visualization

Founded by David Usher, Art + Icons is a creative studio that lives in the heart of Montreal. We are storytellers and work at the intersection of art, artificial intelligence and the human experience.  Our unique vision bridges the divide between artists and geeks (we love both) to build original creative experiences using interactive storytelling and applied AI.
