We’re proud to announce that our collaboration with 11Onze has won a global digital award for excellence.
11Onze‘s universal banking app ‘El Canut’ has won a Centauri Award for Best Financial Services App at the Vega Global Digital Awards.
11Onze’s financial application, which celebrated its first anniversary this month, overcame all obstacles to win a new international award. More than 1,000 applications were received from 20 countries.
This is the second year in a row that 11Onze has collected an award at this programme having previously collected a Centauri Award for La Plaça / The Square and numerous other accolades from international design associations.
"We strongly believe in the democratisation of banking and financial services. That’s why we're delighted to have our technological milestones recognised as pioneering."James Sène Chairman - 11Onze
A global benchmark
The story behind the launch of El Canut was captured perfectly in a film, that premiered in Barcelona, entitled ‘In a few days’. Attempts at sabotage, infiltrators and constant pressure aimed at derailing the birth of 11Onze as a Catalan community fintech.
The project, however, dodged the problems, moved forward and now users have in their hands an application that has been recognised across the globe as an award-winning benchmark by the Vega Digital Awards (global), the Webbys (USA), UX Design Awards (Germany), The ADG Laus (Spain) and IDI Awards (Ireland).
About the Vega Digital Awards
The Vega Digital Awards are organised by the International Awards Associate (IAA) and they aim to celebrate digital excellence worldwide, recognising the very best in Websites, Video, Mobile, Social, Animation, Marketing, and Podcasts.
This year the judging panel was comprised of 22 experts from 10 countries. The theme for the 2022 Vega Awards is ‘Transcending Boundaries’ – to go beyond the common and to set ourselves apart.
11Onze is a Barcelona-based fintech that has done nothing but transcend boundaries since its launch, their mission is to empower the financial health and decisions of the Catalan community in Spain and abroad by creating an expansive resource, ‘El Canut‘.
The vision for the app was to offer customers the ability to manage all their bank accounts in one place, no matter what country they reside in. In addition, customers would be able to manage all their payments, transfers, savings and loans from one source – a one-stop-shop banking app.
‘El Canut’ is an old Catalan phrase that means purse. Unlike the old phrase, the product and service of 11Onze and El Canut was radically new for the Spanish and European markets. This was the key design challenge for our team; to design a disruptive banking app to coincide with the launch of a new way of delivering community banking and ‘transcending boundaries’.
