Polygamous or monogamous? Harmoney appoints Contagion after playing the field with project-based partnerships

Peer-to-peer lending site Harmoney has appointed Contagion to its advertising account after a pitch understood to have also involved Goodfolk and Problem Child. This news follows on from a period of relative polygamy for Harmoney, with the company taking its marketing business in-house last year and handing out project work to a range of agencies, including True, Goodfolk, JustOne and Latch Digital.

In memory of dial-up tones, frozen faces and broken links: Contagion and Chorus put early internet moments on display

The stuttering dial-up tone of a modem typified the internet experience in the 1990s and early 2000s. And in those early online days, there were no guarantees. The line could be dropped any moment. YouTube clips buffered for longer than they played. And video calls were reduced to an unimaginably awkward series of frozen snapshots of family members. Lest we forget how far we have come since these struggles, Contagion has released a new campaign for Chorus, which shows iconic early internet moments on display in what appears to be a museum.

The Harcourts 'he said, she said'

While the era of managed corporate communications and non-disclosure agreements means pitching is far less public than the days of clients announcing how much their business was worth and which agencies would be fighting for it, the process is still all about competition. There is a winner (and occasionally winners) and there are losers. And in the recent Harcourts pitch, which was won by Contagion, it seems no-one wanted to be a loser.

The rise of fast-casual: Pita Pit launches its first TVC via Contagion

Pita Pit has launched its first nationwide campaign via a new TVC conceptulised by Contagion, the agency which won the account for the food chain's cross-Tasman business earlier this year. The 30-second spot, which was shot by Flying Fish and directed by Helena Brooks, features a middle-aged man, dressed in the garb of a stereotypical accountant, dancing awkwardly after having completed a meal from Pita Pit.

Gratuitous Kiwiana wins the day as Tasti and Contagion take Colmar Brunton's August Ad Impact Award

After a long period of flying under the radar, Auckland-based food company Tasti Products came out all Kiwiana guns blazing with a cliche-filled online and print campaign in September last year. A few months back it took the next logical step down that path, launching its first ever TVC with a very colloquial remix of OMC's How Bizarre and some completely over the top, almost ironic patriotism. And while some in adland didn't seem too keen on it, consumers seem to be, because the ad has taken out the August instalment of Colmar Brunton's Ad Impact Award.

The mutating Contagion: selling out or savvy strategy?

When Contagion launched a few years back, it was loudly beating the digital and social drum. It still is, but it's also doing more of what some would call traditional agency work. So is it selling out? Or is getting in on the groundfloor by offering specialist skills that clients seem to be looking for and then gradually taking a bigger chunk of the business a smart strategy?
