Contagious moves and welcomes Ed White and Dan Southern
Contagious has moved to an office of our very own in Farringdon and would be delighted to make you a cup of tea in one of our new colourful mugs if you'd like to drop in. All of our new telephone numbers are updated on our website, and our new address is Dunstan House, 14A St Cross St, EC1N 8XA.
Dan joins Contagious Insider as senior consultant where he aims to combine a passion for the new and interesting with quiet disdain for the over-hyped.
Having graduated with a first class degree in Economics, he started his career within a WPP sports and entertainment agency, which was followed by a role as creative consultant within Xtreme Information's Insight team, where he helped double the business in three years.
Fellow new boy and FEED senior writer Ed White joins Contagious from trends forecasting agency The Future Laboratory, where he was editor of Future:Poll, the bespoke brand research division.
After studying art history at the Courtauld Institute, Ed started his career in journalism as a lowly editorial assistant on the main news desk at the Financial Times. From there he defected to shots magazine, working his way up to news reporter and staff writer before going transatlantic in 2007, joining fellow ad publication Boards, latterly as associate editor.
