In the last few years we have seen a resurgence in thoughtful and beautifully designed football magazines and publications and new digital-based Eleven magazine continues that trend. Eleven is a football magazine app available to buy from Apple Newsstand and Google Play which showcases eleven editorials from top global football writers and authors.
Eleven is for the digital-savvy reader who is used to instantly downloadable apps and touch-screen interaction. With great design and interactive features, Eleven has cutting edge content and timeless articles that will resonate with every fan. On iPad and tablets, the magazine is bi-monthly, with subscriptions available to suit the reader.
Issue one of was released in June 2015 and the spectacular cover montage illustration was designed by one of our favourite designers, James Taylor, who we have featured here many times before (World Cup Posters; Il Derby).
The name Eleven comes from the players who take to the pitch each week, and also the team of writers who contribute to each issue. Featuring the likes of Jonathan Wilson, Daniel Abrahams, Massimo Lucchesi, Amy Lawrence and Rico Rizzitelli, it is to them that the magazine is dedicated. A place to hear about stories and moments that bring us all together, just like the passion that thousands of like-minded fans share all over the world.
