A South African Taiwanese designer & illustrator with a desire to experiment with different media. Lived in South Africa, China & New York. Often questioned whether her life is like Mean Girls or a Nat Geo documentary.  


I'm Man-Ping Wu or MVP as my past colleagues called me. I specialise in illustrations, editorials & digital media creating beautiful and engaging content. Coming from a graphic design and UX background, my creative practice emphasizes subtlety with a big impact. Achieved by refined craftsmanship, developed concepts, and strategic thinking. Worked previously with great people at House of van Schneider & Lemonade Creative.

In my sparetime, I create art content on TikTok & YouTube and do some fandom research to write Medium articles. Like a millennial, by seeking Twitter memes, subreddits and listening to Studio Ghibli Lofi Jazz ☺︎
