The Hothouse talks showcase industry professionals from across design and illustration, creating a space where design professionals, students and alumni can learn about about different areas of illustration and graphic design. Todays HotHouse Talk is by Paul Jenkins of Triple Double.
Paul founded Triple Double, a multi-disciplinary design studio earlier this year and has experience spanning London, Berlin and Tokyo. He works with many disciplines including graphic design, branding, art direction, concept and campaign development, digital design, social media and project curation. I think its fair to say he knows what he’s talking about!
Paul discussed his design process from the initial ideas through sketching and developing and finally to the finished product. Emphasising that its important to develop a relationship with your project, research it and really become an expert on it. Then Sketching and developing your ideas on paper before editing it and coming to a final design. Paul also said how important collaboration is in his studio and that two heads are always better than one!
It was an incredibly inspiring talk and Paul was quick to answer any questions we had and tell us about his past experiences and projects that helped to shape him as an artist.
