<h2>Rumble Inspire</h2>
</hgroup>
<p>While I believe I've gained a lot from University and working as an in-house designer in the Travel Industry, I've still got heaps more to learn.</p>
<p>The web is an ever evolving in terms of technologies and methodologies. I feel Rumble Labs embrace this, and will allow me to grow as a Web Designer and a creative.</p>

<h2>&hearts; Web App Design</h2>
</hgroup>
<p>Over the last couple of years I've had a hand in designing the interface for an Agent only Travel Web App called, Fareteam. It's used by hundreds of agents across the UK and Ireland everyday. I took away a lot of things from this project in terms of tighting up my technical abilities with HTML, CSS and Javascript, but most of all I found a passion for User Experiennce and User Interaction design. I love taking potentially complex user interactions and simplifying them until they become much more intuitive.</p>
<p>This has led me to take the plunge and create my on Web App, 'Catch the Worm' as a final year major project. In catch the worm I aim to 'gamify' the laborious task of getting up early. I'm looking at how far 'Responsive Design' can be taken in a Web Application, that serves the same content up for all mobile and desktop devices but is styled and functions differently depending on the device.</p>
<p>To have an opportunity to make Web Apps of Onotate's caliber at Rumble would be an amazing start to my career.</p>

<h2>Rumble is Geek friendly</h2>
</hgroup>
<p>A potential Rumblr is a Multidisciplinary creative. At the risk of sounding 'up myself', I strive to be creative in everything I do. I believe a creative's main role is to question convention, he should be continually on the look out for ways to change things for the better.</p>
<p>I relish learning new things and I'm willing to try anything, often at the detriment of sleep.</p>
<p>Over the past two years as well as Studying and working Part-time as a designer, I've taken on a variety of side projects and distractions to help satisfy my inner Geek. From taking a course in Screen Printing at 'Belfast Print Workshop', Making Typographical <a href="http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8832846858092272623#" title="The Scarves Go Missing">stop motion animation with scarves</a> to spending eighteen hours cutting <a href ="http://twointhebush.tumblr.com/page/1">sweet shapes</a> out of sticky vinyl in a makeshift photography studio.</p>
<p>Rumble will give my inner geek an opportunity to work on creative things beyond Web Design, if the 'Onotate the World' Campaign is anything to go by.</p>

<h2>The Rumble Way</h2>
</hgroup>
<p>In the Job description, Rumble Labs is described as having a start-up mentality. This suggests that Rumble don't rest on their laurels and aren't afraid to strike out in a new direction. From the talk at Refresh a few months ago, on 'How not to Design a Web App', I found Rumble to be a relaxed but hardworking group. I produce some of my best work in this sort of environment and love collaboration.</p>

<h2>Rumble > Charlie Sheen</h2>
</hgroup>
<p>Lastly, I believe Rumble Labs is copiously equipped with volumes of #tigerblood and a internship there will result in 99% more #winning than with Charlie Sheen.</p>
