Rembert Montald

Storyboard Artist at Riot Games

Rembert Montald believes the best way to tell a story is to show it. Intrigued by the intricacies of visual storytelling, Rembert pursued an education in animation and art in Brussels, Belgium, and later Gobelins, Paris. After working on a variety of things, including storyboards for animated movies and even theme parks, he decided Belgium was a little too small for him. Since then, he’s lived and worked all over the globe, including Croatïa, Germany, Portugal, and the U.S.A.

For the last three years, he’s been working at Riot Games as a concept and storyboard artist and was mentored by Ryan Woodward.
