About Us

Eleven is an architecture-design-lifestyle magazine, creative agency and online oasis dedicated to 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 and believe architecture and design have a major role to play in today’s world. Our ethos is centred around the notion that creative thinking is at the root of all innovation and is responsible for opening doors to possibilities which shatter previously imagined limits as it transforms problems into opportunities and inspires generations of change. We are passionate about the role design has to play in problem solving globally and see ourselves as facilitators of this simple concept. This is what Eleven aims at fostering through events and competitions focused on growing talent and articles published to celebrate it.

At Eleven, we don’t like to take ourselves too seriously, but are extremely serious about what we do. We work hard to establish ourselves as a leading design and architecture innovation-incubator, synonymous for delivering quality, integrity and showcasing raw creative talent from around the world.

Our Magazine:

Our architecture-design-lifestyle magazine focuses on amazing people (creative leaders and emerging talents), cool places (design-hotspots, culture hubs and travel), ideas which make you think, and finally ‘design’ itself, from graphic, fashion, product, architecture and urbanism.

Our Competitions:

Our award winning international competitions are aimed at students and professionals alike, have been published world wide both in print and online by prestigious magazines, and have been exhibited in 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 we welcome you to get in touch!
