Bianca Ng (she/her) is a Cantonese American visual storyteller and facilitator, creating brave spaces for BIPOC folk to affirm their intersectional identities and creative voices.
She began her career in NYC as a designer working at an award-winning branding studio and a fortune 500 company before becoming the Creative Director for The Cosmos, an intentional online & offline community for Asian women. With The Cosmos, she helped produce the first large-scale summit and curated marketplace celebrating local Asian women artists, brands, and small businesses in the tri-state area.
Her work has been recognized by the Type Directors Club and featured in People of Craft, Ladies, Wine & Design, and more.
In 2015, Bianca pursued her first personal project, 100 Days of Better Conversations, where she illustrated 100 conversations with strangers and friends. In 2017, she founded Take Up Space, a visual storytelling project that celebrated women's stories during Women's History Month. In 2018, Take Up Space evolved into talks, workshops, and a sold-out interactive art event.
In 2019, after paying off her student loans, she took a seven-month creative sabbatical Couchsurfing in Japan and WWOOFing in New Zealand. Through these personal pursuits, she realized her passion is in the intersections of creativity, community, and collective liberation.
Currently, Bianca is developing a program for BIPOC folk. She is committed to building a supportive, creative community for marginalized folks to connect, question, and heal.
You can find her oversharing about the creative process, mental health, identity, and all the feels on Instagram @bng.design and substack.
