Well hello there…
Eleven is an architecture & design magazine, creative agency and online portal on design-led innovation. We create award-winning international competitions and publish articles on the industry’s coolest people, places, ideas and designs.
Here at Eleven, we love ideas! We believe architecture and design has a major role in today’s world. Creative thinking is at the root of innovation, it can transform problems into opportunities and inspire generations of change.
We opened our (virtual) doors to the public in spring 2015 and never looked back since! From our main offices on the south coast of England, we mastermind and run global ideas & design competitions, events and think-tanks tailored to an international audience of design and architecture students, professionals and academics.
Our ethos is centred around the notion that architecture and design is about opening doors to possibilities which shatter previously imagined limits.
We are passionate about the role design has to play in problem solving globally and see ourselves as facilitators of this simple concept. It is about seeking out the biggest challenges and turning them into even greater opportunities. It has to do with fostering creative brilliance and pushing the boundaries of innovation in often subtle but meticulously thought-out ways. Be it in our urban, social, ecological or natural contexts, design-led approaches and creative-thinking are powerful tools in tackling turning towns upside down.
Our business model is pretty simple: put our audience (this means you) first and the rest will follow. Here at Eleven, we don’t like to take ourselves too seriously, but are extremely serious about what we do. We work hard to establish Eleven as a leading design and architecture innovation-incubator, synonymous for delivering quality, integrity and showcasing raw creativity day after day.
Our competitions have won awards, have been published world wide both in print and online by prestigious magazines, and have been exhibited in both Europe and the USA.
We are always on the lookout for creative partnerships, be it in conceptual fields, events, or in real-life design outcomes. Equally, we constantly scout for creative talent to publish on our magazine. So, if you wish to either work with us or showcase your work through us, then please… get in touch!

We rely on studios, practices, agencies, artists, thinkers and individuals from all over the world to share their compelling designs with us, so we can publish to our design-hungry avid readers and followers. Our mission is to encourage and foster talent, spread design-led innovation, showcase the best in the industry, and publish design-related news from around the world.
