Aja Elle


Detroit raised, design + marketing made

Aja Lawson is a UX Designer and MarCom professional from Detroit, Michigan based in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, in the United States. Coming from a background of marketing and communications in various capacities and industries, her work spans from branding and experiential marketing to graphic design, copywriting, social and digital media management, and much more. Deciding her natural abilities to connect with people on an empathetic level, as well as her unique design capabilities, were not being used to their greatest potential, Aja decided to pursue a career in user experience and interface design; bridging the gap between her talents and interests in psychology, design and technology.
