NO GLOWING LOCKS
SMART AND SUBTLE
Exploring Visual Languages
Without an established brand identity, we helped TenEleven explore ways to visually communicate and connect with their audience by iterating a few style tiles.
Think minimalist, not Matrix.
Ultimately, we landed on a modern interpretation of binary code, incorporating black-and-white cityscapes from funded company locations to underscore TenEleven’s global focus.
It’s all in the details
Every choice in the design (from the color palette, typography system and background patterns to a unique, interactive 404 page) was meant to give a subtle nod to the cybersecurity industry in a professional way.
“CNP took the time to understand our company and our unique position in the cyber security industry. They delivered a website that truly reflects our brand, and we're incredibly proud to show it off to the world.”
The TenEleven Ventures website won a district Gold ADDY, Judge's Choice, and Best in Category at the 2016 American Advertising Awards—now moving on to regionals.
