The Monegraph name came from contracting the phrase “Monetized Graphics,” and that’s exactly what we’re about: helping artists and owners claim the rights and commercial value of their digital media. To do that Monegraph has built a platform that makes it easy for creators of all kinds to construct smart contracts and licenses for the commercial use of their creative work.
With Monegraph, it's easy to buy and sell fully licensed digital media directly with terms, rights and prices you control. Our system streamlines licensing, payment processing, media handling and distribution of your work so that you have everything you need to be in business and get paid for what you do. We bring artists, photographers, designers illustrators and other media makers and owners together with collectors, publishers, advertisers and brands.
It’s a new deal for a new generation.
