- Pablo's Airbnb Symbol
Hi there. My name is Pablo A. Medina. I'm a 40-year old graphic design teacher from New York, who is coming to San Francisco to teach at CCA (California College of Art) I need a place to stay during my first two weeks in San Francisco while I find another, more permanent apartment. Your room looks comfortable and I like that it's centrally located. Here's my bio and website:
Pablo A. Medina has an undergraduate degree in drawing and a masters degree in communication design from Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute. Fresh out of grad school he teamed up with David Carson (one of his design heroes), and set out to infuse the design world with his flair of post-modernist typeface designs that drew from his love of Latin-American popular culture. For the past ten years, he has run his own multi-disciplinary graphic design studio called Cubanica that is located in the heart of the Tribeca neighborhood of New York City. Some clients that he has worked with include The Museum of Modern Art, Zoo York, ESPN and The New York Times. He enjoys designing fonts, posters and t-shirts and recently directed and produced an award-winning documentary film called El Play. In 1999, his typeface designs were exhibited in the Design Triennial exhibition at the Smithsonian’s Cooper Hewitt Museum. Pablo is a professor of Communication Design at Parsons the New School for Design. He lives in the East VIllage and is currently working on promoting two of his most recent typeface designs called Calaveras y Diablitos.
