Owen Gent / New illustrator / Bristol, United Kingdom

We welcome Owen Gent among clinic artists! Owen is an award winning illustrator who uses a combination of traditional and digital techniques to capture the warmth and beauty in every job he approaches. Drawing on his love of narrative, metaphor and subtlety, Owens muted colour palettes delicately yet clearly convey the message behind an illustration.

New Colagene's website

It’s official, Colagene’s new website is now online: He has been rethought for more refined and functional user experience. With a new responsive web design, all versions of the website on mobile devices (smartphones and digital tablets) are better adapted for an optimal experience.

The research tool to help find a type of artist (illustrator, storyboarder, motion designer) and type of projects (keywords, techniques, subjects) is now put forward and improved to allow the customer to find the desired artist efficiently. It is also possible to filter artists’ individual portfolios according their main type of clientele or their specialisation (editorial, advertising etc.).
