About Us

ELEVEN, A Culture of Design........

We are innovators of design and business::

• We grow business through design

• We launch businesses through our incubator, Ignite - venture & licensing

At the core of our philosophy is a human-centered design approach. Through intelligence, creativity and imagination we create success. By empathizing with targeted human behavior, needs and wants our visions are based in the context of a connected reality.

We connect through our POWERS OF PERSPECTIVE:

Research & Opportunities

Product & Places

Interactions & Communications

Business Strategy


As a result, we manifest meaningful brands and design the products, places, packaging, communications and experiences that make connections. Synthesizing almost 20 years of "life at ELEVEN" we are able to help evolve the way organizations develop products, places, and experiences through processes, and ultimately strategy.

Our talent is intuitive and empathetic. We recognize brilliance through pattern, function and emotion. We do it because we live it as our passion inspires our vision.

Located in downtown Boston.
