Integrated independent agency Infectious Advertising has appointed Vinu V Krishna as creative head with immediate effect. Prior to joining Infectious Advertising, Krishna was the creative director at Nicheminds, Bengaluru. He comes with over 15 years of experience in copywriting. Infectious is a place where creativity, technology, and data all come together to solve real business problems, Krishna said. “Infectious has a legacy of doing cutting-edge work in the digital space since its inception. And the culture nurtured by Ramanuj and Nisha is conducive to do clutter-breaking work,” he added further.
Sharing the experience of interviewing him, Nisha Singhania and Ramanuj Shastry, director and co-founder, Infectious Advertising, said that they interviewed him in a pub in Bangalore in 2018.

I’m sure he will rock it here at Infectious,” Singhania and Shastry commented.
