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’s a big fan), she 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 was hatched.
