What is your full name? Any nick names?
Daniel Antonio Pacis-Sanchez, so of course my name is Dino? My brother gave me that name when I was born and it’s stuck ever since. I actually think I’m named after the Flintstone’s dog. If someone calls me Daniel, they’re probably selling me something or from high school, so it’s easy to figure out who to avoid.
What is your current occupation(s)?
Artist and Designer
Where do you currently live?
Who is your favorite designer(s)?
Ettore Sottsass, mostly anything from the Dada movement and Dieter Rams, a bit of a cliché for a designer with a background in Industrial Design, but it’s really a must. Other favorites come and go, but those 3 have been pretty consistent.
What are you listening to right now?
My 90s hip-hop station on Pandora
How do you see yourself in 40 years?
I really like what I’m doing now, making things and being a family man, so hopefully I’m able to have this life in 40 years.
What is your most treasured possession?
What is your mode of transportation?
The MTA and my 2 feet.
How would you describe your style, aka uniform?
I like to keep my fashion style unassuming.
What is your favorite book?
I’ve really tried to read books my entire life, but I’ve come to terms with the fact that I simply don’t like them.
This is impossible to answer.
If any of the Bourne Identity movies are on TV, I’m done for the next 2 hours. If it’s a marathon make that 6 hours. My wife and I zone out completely.
My subscription to New York Magazine, which I’ve had for 9 years just expired.
ESPN.com There’s art & design ones in there too, I swear.
I really don’t have any loyalties here, but I’ve consistently worn APC jeans.
What was your first screen name or email address?
Vocabgiant. I started a design company out of school called Orange Italic with Christian Schwartz, a type designer. We came up with these fake names for ourselves, the Vocabularistic Giant and the Unauthorized Autobiographer, because you know, we were right out of school and that sounded like a great idea.
What is your favorite color?
What is your favorite shape?
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life what would be?
