who is chris elawa?





I am a product designer hailing from Jos, Nigeria and Vancouver, Canada. Having grown up bouncing between these two vastly different cultures, I have developed a practice anchored at the intersection of culture, technology and design. I believe a solid understanding of context and culture is indispensable to meaningful product design.

I am currently working as a Product Designer at Facebook in Menlo Park, California. Prior to Facebook, I had the opportunity to work with brands such as Nike, Anheuser-Busch and Nvidia at AKQA San Francisco.
