Positive Side Effects

For the month of May, many novelties are upcoming. First of all, Colagene, illustration clinic is becoming Colagene, creative clinic. During the last years, the clinic put forward diversity trough its services. Focused on illustration at the beginning, it now proudly offers rough/storyboard, motion design and filmmaking, plus an art direction as well for the print as for the web. It became obvious that a name update would be appropriated to assert the global service. Which is now able to answer more than properly to an increasing demand from our customers.

Then, for the official release of its new guide entitled Positive Side Effects, Colagene, creative clinic, organizes a series of events of the same name that is going to begin in Montreal Thursday, May 8th. Thereafter, the event will continued in France. First in Sète, from May 22nd, under the K-Live Festival, then in Paris, Thursday, June 19th at Corner44 gallery. Circle these dates on your calendar and come to meet us, celebrate the talent and have a good creative moment.

And, like every month, discover below a meticulous seclection of the latest creations at the clinic to inspire you.
