Contagion was founded ten years ago. Our biggest passion has always been our clients and helping them win through powerful marketing solutions. We have always believed that businesses want an agency that can cut through the complex landscape of advertising, media and marketing to provide smart and effective solutions that get results.

Having so many skills under one roof means our fantastic clients can take advantage of the best media strategy and deals on the market, award-winning creative work, and highly effective brand strategy. Having all of this together makes everything more efficient and the work more effective. After all, the consumer only gets the product when all the disciplines have come together. We all have a craft, which together makes us Contagion.

We are proud of being NZ owned and operated. We value the depth of our relationships with warmth, integrity and a generosity of spirit.

Our purpose is Helping New Zealand Business win, because when business wins, we all win.

When you walk into Contagion, you won’t be met by a receptionist, one of the team will greet you. We all know the names of every single one of our clients, because we’re all in this together.

Having an open, trusting, collaborative culture is the key to great work. For us to win, everyone has to share in that. Which is why we are completely transparent with our clients and treat their money like our own. We are ambitious for everyone and curious about everything.

So please, come in and see us or drop us a line. We’d love to get to know you over a coffee, a beer or a lovely Villa Maria wine in our bar.

Let us know how we can help.
