The Colagene experience according to our clients:

After working on numerous projects with the Colagene agency, we strongly recommend it. In two words, the clinic is reactive, relevant.

I’ve been working with Colagene for almost a year now. Not only do I appreciate the quality of work provided by their various illustrators, I also enjoy working with Colagene’s professional agents when it comes to illustrator recommendations and feedback. They also make invoicing a breeze, which is important when you are on a tight deadline.
