After one year of continuous development, Monograph officially launched in private beta! We are currently working with several firms to make it as easy as possible to launch a beautiful architecture website. During the beta phase, the service is free to explore and use until you are ready to route your unique domain name to Monograph. Shoot a quick email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask about becoming a beta user.
What is Monograph?
Monograph.io is a technology company founded by architects with the mission to help every architect build a beautiful website—simply, without any code.
We make it easy to grow your firm’s online identity with website templates designed for architects, drag-and-drop editing, and industry-tailored SEO.
Beginning with websites, our goal is to elevate and transform the practice of architecture through better communicating the value architects bring to clients, the public, and our built environment.
Websites form the cornerstone of an architect’s business. They’re a first point of contact, a portfolio on-the-go, a talent attractor, an in-house archive– they can define your company’s persona and build your reputation. But unless you’re well versed in programming or willing to shell out 5 figures most architecture websites will never live up to those expectations.
We want to level the playing field.
Designed specifically for architects, Monograph is the distillation of over 5 years of our own experience building architecture websites for firms like Stanley Saitowitz, Kennedy & Violich Architecture, and Gunadi Lamere Design. Drawing on our collective knowledge we’ve developed tools and protocols to support a successful architecture practice — from simple drag-n-drop interfaces to industry tailored SEO. And we’re doing this because we believe every architect should be able create an award winning website without a single line of code or breaking the bank.
