Get This In Your Head — Confessions Of An Aspiring Jingle Writer

by Kim Tronic, Resident Cocktail Expert + Jingle Writer… It’s happened to all of us. You’re in the shower lathering up or driving to work and you start humming a tune. Then you hum louder and bob your head. Before you know it, you’re screaming “Fresh goes better with Mentos,

About Atomic Tango

Launched in the year ‘007 (of course), Atomic Tango set out as a marketing agency serving entrepreneurs in an array of industries.
