Hello! I am Ginger Ngo, an artist and illustrator based in Vancouver, BC.
I love working with thoughtful people and creative minds. My eclectic style is influenced by a messy bouquet of multicultural/multi-generational pop media, literature, and film. 💐
In art school I enjoyed inks, charcoal, and all the mediums that needed to dry before being moved. I like classic typography. Unfortunately, I also love classic rock. And hair bands. And boy bands. I'm so sorry.
I was born and raised in the Philippines to Chinese parents, and am now based in Vancouver, BC. I had to take the Canadian citizenship exam, and it was hard. (ง ͡ʘ ͜ʖ ͡ʘ)ง But I did it!
To pinpoint my age, I'll say that I have a bachelor's degree in Communication Design from the Emily Carr University of Art + Design (2009).
I have always loved tackling problems in weird ways. Some have not been so successful, but I learn new things and have as much fun as possible for each one I take on.
As a young art director in a previous life, I was always the one with strange ideas that started with, "Okay, hear me out..."
Since then, I've moved on to a range of different fields, all the while keeping the same principles. I've worked with top Canadian universities, events companies with trade shows about home renovations/knitting/weaving, and software/tech companies–all with people who have been in meetings with me where I have said, "Okay, hear me out..."
I have made many friends along the way, and I am very proud of these relationships. Now returning to art and illustration, I still look at projects through similar lens. I would love the chance to work with more people who share this point of view.
I’m hilarious! I speak two languages! Chinese is not one of them. No, I'm not Vietnamese either. You know what? It’s complicated. Let’s have a coffee and I’ll tell you all about it.
