A South African Taiwanese independent designer & art educator. Bringing her design practice into art classrooms. Lived in South Africa, China & New York and often being asked 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.
Today, I'm an art educator inspiring students to be creatively curious and always do their best. Before I previously worked as a professional designer with great people at House of van Schneider & Lemonade Creative.
In my sparetime, I experiment new media, create art content on Instagram & YouTube and write subculture & self-development Medium articles. Being a zillennial, I actively seek Twitter memes & subreddits, while listening to Studio Ghibli Lofi Jazz ☺︎
