Hey y’all! It’s me, Bianca, owner and designer of Bianca Designs. Welcome to my shop!
I’m a Queer, Gender-fluid Latine artist, cat mom, gaymer, vinyl collector, and plant dad on a mission to create a more inclusive world through designing original Pride accessories and apparel.
I do this because the LGBTQIA+ community deserves to be seen as they are.
And because everyone deserves a space where they can:
✿ Be represented and affirmed in their identity,
☞ Learn more about the community,
☀ And feel proud of who they are no matter what life stage they’re in.
☺ There’s a place here for everyone!
So, a little bit about my story
A lot of my inspiration stems from my upbringing, being born and raised in 90s Queens, coming out in the early 2000s, and being surrounded by NYC urban art.
I’m a self-taught, independent artist and have been designing for over 10 years. I’m so grateful to have found my artistic style and the creative freedom to make designs that feel authentic to me.
And the best part is getting to share it with others.
Why Queer art?
Because inclusion matters.
I honestly didn’t see much Queer representation growing up, and I want to change that so folks can see themselves through art.
To me, these designs mean more than adding a fun pop of color to an outfit.
My goal is when someone wears an accessory, they’ll feel like their truest self.
I hope my art helps people feel confident and empowered, opens up meaningful conversations, shows allyship to the LGBTQIA+ community, and creates visibility.
About the designs
I start the design process by sketching my ideas for new shapes and concepts. If the design incorporates a Pride flag, I do careful research to make sure all identities are represented accurately, from symbols to colors and everything in between.
There’s always something new to learn within the Queer community for myself and my art.
My design style is modern and playful, using curvy, squiggly lines, geometric shapes, custom typography, and colors from various Pride flags. I like to keep it fun!
If you’re more of an in-person shopper, you can also find select products at physical locations such as bookstores, museums, and retail stores. See the list of places here.
