Why choose Rumble?

Rumble Marketing is a story-based marketing agency. That means we use powerful stories to get people to pay attention to your message by making your marketing more persuasive, meaningful, and entertaining.

We spend 0% of your time (and ours) on pointless “strategy” meetings, because we really shine at doing the actual story work. So, after a little smart planning, we get right to work creating the designs, writing the copy and bringing your bold ideas to life.

When not doing the work, we teach you how to do it too. Our BS-free corporate workshops teach the same practical techniques we use every day to produce excellent client work. Learn how to sell smarter, communicate clearly and tell a great brand story.

Launched in 2011, we’ve already earned a reputation as one of the premier storytelling agencies in the Pacific Northwest. Our clients include Fortune 500s like Starbucks, T-Mobile, and Microsoft. Let’s talk about getting you on that list.

Shannon French

Researcher and Assistant Copywriter

Shannon French started her academic and professional career in the life sciences, which explains why her research skills, discipline and attention to detail are so spectacularly good. While earning a double degree in Biological Sciences and Geography from Virginia Polytechnic and State University, Shannon also spent six months as an intern for healthcare nonprofits in Sri Lanka. While there, Shannon worked alongside professional scientists in the field, assisting in research and education around HIV, TB, and malaria.

After graduation, Shannon continued working in the nonprofit and advocacy world, holding a range of program development, education and communication roles. Ultimately, Shannon realized that it was the stories and the people behind the science that she loved best, so she enrolled in the University of Washington Communication Leadership Master Degree program, where she studied professional storytelling, copywriting and communications.

A former competitive swimmer for 15 years, Shannon’s favorite activities now include trail running, rock climbing, obstacle racing, and circus hand balancing. (We know, we had to Google that last one too. It’s pretty cool.)
