Happy Birthday Tuna Traffic

It’s Tuna Traffic’s 8th birthday! From exciting growth and some incredible projects for clients to overhauling our space, adding new Tunas to our team, and more, we’ve got a lot to celebrate.

Here are 8 things we’re celebrating, and while it may be OUR birthday, we’ve got some gifts for YOU!

1. It’s all about our clients.

Our clients are the reason we get to do the incredible work that we do. These cool client projects are living, breathing examples of the kinds of work we live for:

We worked with ZMac to shoot a few new ZMac recruitment videos for Transportation Logistic jobs and ZMac service-oriented videos to celebrate their culture and cutting-edge technology. 

2. NEW Tunas: Meet Angela, Senior Marketing Strategist.

We simply could not do what we do without the team members that make up our Well-Formed Teams. Since last year, we’ve added some new Tunas to the mix. Starting with Angela:

  • Angela Medenblik joined Tuna in April as a Senior Marketing Strategist. She provides project management and flow management for our Caledonia office. 
  • Angela graduated from Dordt College with a double major in Business Administration and Art, with a emphasis in Marketing. She has 25+ years of post-college experience focusing on project management, account management and general marketing. She has worked in a variety of industries and environments from retail, publishing, printing, insurance, non-profit, auto, agriculture, agency and manufacturing.
  • When Angela isn’t keeping our office moving, she’s coaching girls’ youth basketball, spending quality time with family and friends, watching movies, or shopping, of course…a girl can never have too many shoes! She’s also got a right-brained side and loves photography, painting, and crafting. 

3. NEW Tunas: Meet Erin, Digital Marketing Specialist.
