PAST EVENTS

 

WHAT'S IN A NAME?

The name Chimirus (Kai’Meer’us) is a nod to the “Chimera,” a three-headed beast from Greek folklore with the head of a lion, body of a goat and the tail of a snake. Something legendary; existing only in one’s imagination. In this case, our “beast” represents today’s three core digital production needs: Design, 3D and Animation.

The first part of the name, “Chi”—well, no surprises there. Chi-town is our hometown—the city we know and love: Chicago. The second half, “mirus” in Latin, means “to wonder” or “marvel.” It is literally where the magic happens. Because, isn’t that really what we as artists do? We create magic; that wonder.
