 The Colagene experience according to our clients:

I love to work with Colagene for the great work quality of their artists, their positioning, their reliability and also their seriousness in our exchanges. Marie-Christine, always passionnated and in a good mood, contributes largely to the work fluidity. Many thanks.

Thanks to Colagene, we were able to get in a very tight deadline, high quality illustrations which were perfect for our request. It is an excellent collaborator, I don’t hesitate a moment to recommend this agency.
Janie Lamontagne, Art Director, LOULOU magazine

It was a true pleasure to work with Marie-Eve Tremblay and Colagene team on the book La Méchante petite poulette dans La Vengeresse Masquée et Le Loup (The Bad-tempered chick in The Masked Avenger and the Wolf). Marie-Eve understood very well the world and the tone of author Pierre Dubé’s text and she brilliantly illustrated it . We will probably work again with her very soon. Who knows, maybe for a second book about new adventures of this bad-tempered chick.

The Colagene experience according to our clients:

Working with Colagene was a truly enjoyable experience. The clinic's database of artists gave us the opportunity to consider many different illustrators and illustration styles and find the one that best suited our concept and our needs. I also greatly appreciated Aaron McConomy’s careful consideration of the creative brief, and his ability to integrate multiple complex themes into a coherent, cohesive and attention-getting illustration.
Victoria Leenders-Cheng , editor-in-chief, Focus 2014, McGill Faculty of Law

I love working with Colagene because they have diverse illustrators. I have worked with Emmanuel Polanco numerous times and he is amazingly creative with fresh and clever ideas which are always to the point. I love his techniques and he is very pleasant to work with.
