Eleven is a fully independent, award-winning architecture, design and creative-lifestyle magazine and online platform. We publish the industry’s freshest people, places, ideas and designs and launch regular ‘creative revolutions’ in the form of international competitions.
We believe creativity and imagination is at the root of all progress. It is responsible for kicking the door wide open to exciting possibilities with the power to shatter previously imagined limits. Creative thinking can transform problems into opportunities and revolutionise the world for the better. As such, we believe that architecture, design and the creative industries have an important role to play in today’s society, not only in the creation of a more beautiful environment, but by inspiring new concepts and building better futures for us and our planet to thrive in.
This simple belief is what drives us at Eleven to promote global creative talents through the editorial multimedia content we publish, but also by creating award-winning competitions to allow this talent to be fostered, recognised and emerge.
Our competitions annually feature in the Top-10 best creative competitions in the world and in November 2018, Eleven Magazine was awarded A’Design Award’s ‘Best Design Media Award’, voted on by thousands of leading designers tasked to highlight the very best design publications worldwide.
