Eleven has a team of approximately 100 employees and represents brands such as Apple, Google, Lyft, and Virgin America.

Vision7 chairman and chief executive Brett Marchand said in a statement that Eleven represents an ideal modern agency.

"Integrating brand innovation, experience design, advertising content, and media activation are what any consumer-centric client should be seeking in today's era of convergence. We welcome the entire Eleven team to the V7 family and very much look forward to helping each other grow and become even better partners to today's brands," said Marchand.

Vision7 is a subsidiary of Bluefocus International. The acquisition of Eleven represents Bluefocus's first major advertising brand in the US.

This year has been Eleven's most successful in new business wins, and the agency has seen 30% revenue growth to a projected $29 million, according to a company statement.

"Today's CMOs need help navigating the complex world of experiences, content, and conversations that consumers engage with on a daily basis," Courtney Buechert, chief executive of Eleven, said in a statement. "We have ambitious goals to help our clients adapt to this ever-evolving landscape and have been looking for the right partner to help us achieve that growth. From the similarities in our agency cultures to our shared belief in the importance of creativity, curiosity, and intellectual rigor, we have found all of the complementary capabilities we've been looking for in V7."

Campuses will be built in San Francisco and Chicago with Eleven as the creative hub. They will house other agency offerings from Bluefocus and its subsidiaries.
