About 11:11 Designs

11:11 Designs was founded in 2014. Bryan’s fascination with storytelling was sparked by cherished childhood memories. As a young boy, he would spend countless hours at his grandmother’s knee, listening intently as she shared stories of her life and adventures traveling the world. These stories were not just words to Bryan; they were vivid, colorful worlds he could dive into, full of cityscapes, adventures, and endless possibilities.

This early love for stories evolved over the years, as Bryan realized the profound impact they could have—not just in words, but in every form of communication. He saw design not just as visual art but as a narrative tool, a way to tell a story without saying a word. It was this realization that led him to the world of website and graphic design, where every color, shape, and line could be part of a larger narrative.

Driven by this passion, Bryan founded 11:11 Designs. His aim was to harness the power of storytelling in the digital realm, to create not just websites and logos, but experiences that resonate with people on a deeply personal level. In this way, Bryan’s childhood adventures among the stories of his grandmother’s adventures became the cornerstone of 11:11 Designs’ philosophy, infusing every project with a sense of wonder and narrative depth.
