~ For the Creative and Entertainment Industries~

At McGREWS we specialize in custom costumes, production design, script analysis, sets, props, models, miniatures and effects for the entertainment and creative industries.


Our expertise is behind the crafting of fantastic story-telling for stage, film, commercials, fashion, conventions, museums, attractions, cosplay, interior design, architecture, businesses and educational institutions. As a design, fabrication and consulting operation, we partner with a wide range of other creatives.  

Prior to all the paint and color that doused them during the filming... Pluralsight's One and Zero in their snappy new white future suits.

As our region’s top production design workroom, we make patterns and prototypes for other product developers. We also broker factory contracts when you’re ready to scale up. We produce our own films, work and consult on others, and we are enthusiastic pinch hitters where no one else can solve the weirdest challenges.


Our group of lead designers is a seasoned one. Combined, we have more than 200 years’ professional experience.  McGrews has successfully served an exciting niche market through our Salt Lake City operation since 2001 and each of us has already lived and worked professionally in either L.A. or New York. We enjoy our quality of life in Utah as we continue to provide fantastic custom work to both coasts and around the world.


Typically, we are booked out 3-6 months in advance all year, so we urge you to plan ahead for your event or film needs. We take projects that interest us and fit into our schedule.  To have us bid out your job, please call us at 801-596-2210. You may also use our contact form onto which you can upload images with your project questions.
