Testimonials

I discovered the Colagene agency and the graphic clinic a few years ago and I found that, as a passionate of illustration and graphic design, this concept is extremely rich and interesting. The range of artists represented by Colagene is varied and often offers a solution for my projects. I systematically visit the clinic’s website everytime I need to research for a brand I work for.

From the beginning I regarded Colagene as one of my favorite illustrator agencies. I love the variety of their artists and, always important to a photo editor, the people at Colagene are always friendly and helpful.
Ellen Reddy, Photo Editor Cosmopolitan Germany

At first we didn’t choose colagene but an artist who was represented by the agency, Then however, doing business with the this agency revealed to present an advantage: their professionalism helps with making timelines less unrealistic and challenges less crazy.. Their comprehension of our constraints and those of their artists enables everyone to work better together. It’s a guaranteed choice in terms of efficacy and mind tranquility.
