Founder and Creative Director
Imagine taking two of your passions in life and turning them into a successful business. This is what Triple Double Studio Founder and Creative Designer, Paul Jenkins has achieved in many ways. Take a listen to the Podcast
Paul has always set his own path. A careers interview towards the end of his GCSEs did not go well. He went in with a plan and was bluntly informed that he would fail if he didn't drop this and take a more conventional route through A Levels. His response "I stopped listening before the end of the interview; I knew what I had to do".
Triple Double takes Paul's two passions in life, basketball and design and combines them in a way that empowers young people. In his words, "We are a creative studio that unleashes how youth engage in sport and education, using the power of design and creativity to transform their lives."
Paul believes that if we listen, really listen to the needs, fears and aspirations of young people; we can work creatively with them to effect real change, a process that Paul calls Co-Creation.
This is an inspirational story of a studio working differently and with a set of values running through its very core. So sit back, put your headphones on and listen to Designed for Life in conversation with Paul Jenkins.
