Meet the Xec Board: Marquayla Ellison


Marquayla Ellison,
Creative Director

“Putting the Cherry on top of the Social Xperience”

I have been using my creative eye since the age of 4. Painting, drawing, decorating, and designing….. Name it, I’ve done it. I originally went to the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee for Architecture but realized two years into the program that my passion was for design.


When I found out about Social X, a position had just opened up. I saw it as my opportunity to do something new with a great group of people. I am the youngest board member, and have learned so much from the rest of the gang. My other fellow Xecs welcomed me with open arms and I truly have the opportunity to provide a unique perspective to what the public sees from us.

As Creative Director for Social X, I like to say that I put the cherry on top of everyone’s visual Xperience. Keeping up the image and tone of Social X and our signature events. It’s always great to see young professionals connecting and vibing together under one roof.

When I am not busy designing for my company Ellastic Designs or Social X, I like to play with my dog Bo, hangout with my loved ones, try new places in Milwaukee
