The Egg Story

We get asked a lot: “How’d you come up with the name ‘Egg?'” Here’s the story.

When Susan decided to start her company, she needed a name. Watching the film “Funny Face” with Audrey Hepburn, Susan took note of the bookstore where Audrey’s character worked: Embryo Concepts. Susan liked the idea of giving birth to an idea, but Embryo Marketing was not quite what she was looking for. After a bit more brainstorming…voila! Egg Marketing & Communications was hatched.
