Thank you for your interest in me and my work! My name is Edwin Rhemrev, and I'm a dutch set designer / artdirector working in feature animation. I live with my family in a small village called Voorburg near The Hague, The Netherlands, where I work from my home studio.
I'm proud to have worked on over 20 animated features, including Despicable Me 3, The Grinch, Over the moon, Minions: the rise of Gru, My Little Pony, Spongebob and more. Studios I've worked with include Illumination, Skydance, Glen Keane Productions, Netflix, Hasbro, Paramount, Nickelodeon, Katuni and more.
When I'm not working on fun films, I love drawing with my kids, swimming and write and draw projects of my own.

Production Design / Visual Development
Over the years I've specialised in the development of stylized sets and environments, doing visual development in both 2D and 3D. I'm able to take a written briefing / script and develop sets from sketch to detailed pre-viz models, final concept art & modelsheets, and make sure it facilitates story and staging as wanted by the AD/PD/Directors. I excel when working in that area between visual development and the 3D modelling department, creating concept art and detailed models to inform scale, layout and assets overviews to speed along production.

Talks & Workshops
In addition to my development work, I also enjoy occasionally doing talks and workshops at creative events or schools where I can share my experiences & passion for visual development and help other artists in their own creative journeys.
