An Interview with Dan Mall

Dan Mall is a huge figure in the web design community. I’ve been a fan of Mall’s output for years, yet I haven’t spotted many interviews with him after he left NYC firm Big Spaceship. This talk with The Industry‘s Conor O’Driscoll is brief yet informative. I especially liked hearing about Dan’s day to day:

I wake up everyday around 4:45AM-5:00AM. I get to the gym between 5 and 5:30 where I’ll lift for an hour then play either basketball or racquetball with my brother, then head home around 7 to shower and get ready for the day…We’re in bed by 9PM.

That’s an early schedule, and I’m impressed Dan sleeps eight hours a night.
