About Me 👁

I'm Bianca Aguilar, an Interdisciplinary Studies student (majoring in Information Design and Computer Science: Programming) at Ateneo de Manila University. As a visual designer and artist, I’m devoted to empowering social good in the digital sphere.

What I do

Specializing in brand and product, I’ve worked with personal brands and mission-based organizations in the fields of technology, innovation, career development, mental health, and feminism. Currently, I'm designing for a startup studio disrupting industries.

I'm also passionate about enabling youth creation, done through leading at Developh (as Chief Design Officer) and User Experience Society Ateneo (as AVP for Design Training).


Talk to me about...

🖥️🤔 Tech Anthropology & Philosophy

Technology is such a huge influence on our lives, yet we are barely aware of it. And it's not neutral; in the wrong hands, it can steal time, warp perception, manipluate feelings...I can go on and on (hello, social media!). I seek to understand our relationship with technology so that I can advocate for it to be humane.

📚🧠 Reading & Learning

From STEM to business to humanities...I'm always hungry for knowledge. Check out my Are.na, 2020 reading list, and my digital garden (both works in progress)!

🏋️‍♀️💃 Fitness, Wellness & Dance

As someone who can barely sit still, dancing (mainly contemporary styles) and lifting weights is so therapeutic for me. Eating cleanly has also been one of the most effective life decisions I made, and I'm always interested in learning about how we can live healthier. This applies to mental health as well.

🔮💫 Woo-woo Psuedoscience

Despite the lack of scientific evidence, the uncanny way these practices describe the human psyche has always been intriguing to me. So far, I've studied tarot, astrology, and Human Design (If you're curious, I'm a Libra Sun, Aries Moon, and Virgo Rising. And a Manifesting Generator!).

🎲🐲 Dungeons & Dragons

I'm not the best player (more of a roleplayer than a min-maxer), but I still enjoy weekly sessions with my friends! I lean towards tanky classes like the Barbarian and the Paladin (says a lot about my personality...lmao).
