Paul Jenkins.

Last Friday we had the opportunity of meeting Paul Jenkins , the founder of Triple Double Studio. Jenkins came in to give us a little bit of a mix between a talk about himself and his projects and some tips facing the future.

His studio works across graphic design, branding ,art direction ,campaigns ,retail,digital ,project curation and design education projects.

After this introduction , Paul, told us how he works and how does he develop each project.

  • Inmension, always become an expert on the subject the project has to be about.
  • Collaborate ,get in your head that there will always be someone better than you in other specifications so collaborate with them
  • Create, a project done will always be better than something perfect.
  • Edit , eliminate what is distracting , better to be simple and clear then crowded and confusing.
  • Get in to bed with your project , make the project be part of you and keep it always in mind, this is how the better idead come out.
