Vanessa Bong (Vess) is an Asian Australian textile designer and illustrator based in Melbourne Australia. Having worked as a graphic designer for a number of years, she was drawn to the world of surface pattern design and began a journey of discovery. After some travels, workshops, learnings and a multitude of patterns later, she was able to establish herself as a surface pattern designer and saw her work applied to apparel and womenswear.

In addition to her commercial work, she has hosted watercolour workshops to share her craft and spoken at numerous design events. She has created artwork for the public space within the City of Melbourne and in 2023 held her first solo exhibition exploring her identity as an Asian Australian.

At Studio Kura she will be using this time to develop a series of designs based on the themes of hope and rejuvenation through the use of motifs, colour and inspiration gathered from the Itoshima landscape.
