Testimonials

 The Colagene experience according to our clients:

Thanks for being so professional and sending me all the material so quickly: if all the collaborators worked like you, I would be really happy ;-)
Ruth Varillas, Picture Editor, FHM Spain

We collaborated with Colagene for the first time recently and everything went very well. From the brief to the reception of the final files, the communication was perfect and so was the reactivity. It was a first for us and we most certainly will get in touch again with Colagene to work with the talented illustrators the agency represents.
Julie Jamart Dupont Fauville, graphic designer, Magazine Capital

Collaborating with Marie-Christine, Paris’ clinic agent, was very nice. I was able to realize an agency project for a client’s account, The French Golf Federation. The illustrator Takeshi understood the creative concept and delivered it just as I had imagined and sold it to my client.
