Hi! I'm Ngan.

Just in case you're wondering, it's pronounced naan, like the bread. I'm a designer who loves code, puns and donuts.

Currently, I'm freelancing with Automattic, creating display ads for their WordPress brand redesign. Previously, I was a Senior UI/UX Designer at New Target, leading the design team to create quality custom web solutions for associations, nonprofit organizations, government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and commercial businesses and corporations. Before that, I was at Vox Media working on the Branded Content Lab Team as a Senior Front-End Designer. There, I led design and helped build products & platforms that tell powerful and engaging stories both on- and off-platform for our brand partners.

In 2016, I was selected as one of 28 women out of over 400 applicants to attend the ONA-Poynter Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media. DCFemTech also named me one of DC's Most Powerful Women Designers in 2016 and 2017.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from George Mason University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Art & Visual Technology and a concentration in Graphic Design.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling and making puns. You can e-mail me at or find me on social media: github, twitter, instagram, dribbble.
