Reasons to Invest

Legal Graffiti is creating one of the first social AR cultural platforms by alchemizing augmented reality and social media.
The social media market has a value of $72.2 billion and the global NFT market had a 2021 market value of $17 billion.*
Founder and CEO, Cara Bucciferro, has a pedigree of success in the social media and design space, having co-founded NewHive, a multimedia web publishing platform with millions of users.

*Legal Graffiti is in beta testing and is not yet available for download. It is expected to fully launch after the close of this raise.


Legal Graffiti transforms the globe into a universal gallery.

It’s time for social media to escape the confines of the world of scrolling.


The advent of NFTs and the metaverse is making individuals and corporations alike rethink their preconceived notions of business, art, and social media.


Legal Graffiti uses art and media to unite the world through a single content-based platform. With our app and website, users will be able to discover a new aspect of their city’s culture as they walk through their neighborhood, or travel virtually to cities across the world.


*Legal Graffiti is in beta testing and is not yet available for download. It is expected to fully launch after the close of this raise.


With Legal Graffiti, our world becomes a living social network where users are always a step away from discovering something exciting and wonderful, be it art, music, or even history. Not only will our platform be a cultural hub for art, but it will also be an NFT marketplace that supports creators with favorable payouts.

The Problem


The current social media landscape is dreary

Today's social media apps aren't designed with the agility or purpose to innovate. As the market continues to saturate with fluff content, users yearn for something more impactful. A scrolling waterfall of content is what we have been using up until this point, and it’s time for something new. Legal Graffiti’s purpose is to bring us culture and joy in a new and innovative way.



In Legal Graffiti’s world, every surface, from the streets to the sky, is a blank canvas. A blank page waiting for you to write your story. A place to paint our thoughts and emotions into reality. 


All that’s needed is space for dreamers to project visions onto the sleeping world around them, inspiring us all to dream differently.

The Solution


A ground-breaking social platform for art and culture

We are building, what we believe to be, the first social augmented reality (AR) cultural platform. Explore a new world of art, history, music, and current events from around the world in the comfort of your home or neighborhood.


*Legal Graffiti is in beta testing and is not yet available for download. It is expected to fully launch after the close of this raise.


A banal sidewalk on your walk to work can become a magnificent tapestry in mere seconds. Roam the artful streets of Tokyo or Cairo from your living room and feel the stories of the city on display.


In the future of social media, everyone is an artist, and Legal Graffiti will be their playground where they can share, connect, and create. Here, anything is everywhere.



By turning AR into a culture platform that empowers users to place and discover content from anywhere, our world becomes a limitless museum, anchored by our artist's economy of themes (custom maps), NFTs, and fine art.


Legal Graffiti is currently pre-revenue, and once officially launched, will have a three-pronged business model. Our first means to generate revenue will come through business partnerships and curated artist relationships. Secondly, artists will be able to sell paid themes (custom maps) from which we will take a percentage. Our last revenue driver will be our NFT marketplace where Legal Graffiti takes a 10% commission from each sale.


Our full launch is anticipated following the close of this raise at the end of 2022, with Legal Graffiti's NFT marketplace expected to be added in the second half of 2023.


*Legal Graffiti is in beta testing and is not yet available for download. It is expected to fully launch after the close of this raise, with Legal Graffiti's NFT marketplace expected to be added in 2023.

The Market


Driven by our artist economy, servicing today's digital market trends

By alchemizing current technologies such as AR and NFTs, Legal Graffiti will be able to turn any place on the planet into a living social media network and cultural hub.


Within our artist's economy, users will make money as the platform generates revenue. People will always be our first priority.


As we tap into the $72B social media market and $17B NFT industry, Legal Graffiti hopes to usher in a new era of cultural diffusion. (source, source)



Our platform eliminates the physical boundaries that used to keep us from exploring different parts of the world. With Legal Graffiti, your environment becomes as open as the digital world, and our unique marketplace will inspire and support content creators on their artistic journeys. Content moderation will happen through the use of flagging, APIs and a robust backend system.

Our Traction


Experienced leadership, beta already built, launch plans, and marketing efforts primed

Our team has been busy at work, already completing the beta version of our app for iOS and Android. So far, we have curated media in NYC with professional artists on the platform, and we have a PR team ready to perform a marketing blitz as soon as we launch.


*Legal Graffiti is in beta testing and is not yet available for download. It is expected to fully launch after the close of this raise.


Spearheading our efforts is our founder and CEO, Cara Bucciferro. Having worked as a creative designer for standout companies such as Microsoft, Coach, Kiehl's, and Victoria's Secret, Cara has the creative acumen to maximize Legal Graffiti’s potential. She looks to make Legal Graffiti her second culture-shifting company after co-founding NewHive, a multimedia web publishing platform with millions of users.

Why Invest


Help us create a world without borders

Legal Graffiti has the potential to redefine our current understanding of social media. 


By leveraging AR and NFTs, we believe we can create a metaverse that connects people and cultures in a joyful, exciting, and inspirational way. A world of art not confined to the world of art. 



We envision a world where all that’s hidden is finally set free. Help us elevate what social media can be by becoming a shareholder in Legal Graffiti.

Google just set the stage

14 days ago

Three years after the initial concept of Legal Graffiti was created, Google Arts & Culture is taking their spin at a one-off concept similar to Legal Graffiti. 

As many augmented reality projects are, this is a custom situation that is neither ubiquitous nor accessible for users to add content. Instead of a one-off concept, Legal Graffiti is a culture platform, more like a social media platform that is both ubiquitous and accessible for user's creations and growth.

A word from our founder

about 1 month ago


Find what's happening around you.

about 2 months ago

Whether you're checking out what's going on in your neighborhood, or traveling to a new city, Legal Graffiti allows you to see real time updates and locations of what is happening around you. Easily find out about community happenings.  


Leveling the Playing Field

about 2 months ago

Legal Graffiti presents the opportunity to level the playing field for creators everywhere. 

Studies show that if fine artists don't get picked up by a few specific galleries or museums early on in their career, they have very little chance of reaching the upper echelon of artists.*

Similar studies show that for NFT creators if you are not an early adopter, you have less of a chance of being successful. *

Social media has made creators tied to how many followers they have for validation, and not necessarily the quality of their work. 

Legal Graffiti empowers quality content by users all over the world to be found: artists, historians, those with specific knowledge in a subject, musicians, filmmakers, choreographers and any type of creator.

How we make money: The Creator's Economy

2 months ago


1. THEMES: CUSTOM MAPS 

USERS CAN CREATE MAPS BASED AROUND A THEME AND CHARGE FOR THE USE OF THAT MAP. 

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FUN TO DO ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON, VISITING A NEW CITY OR WANT TO LEARN ABOUT THE WORLD AROUND YOU? THINK OF THEMES AS VIRTUAL TOURS.

LEGAL GRAFFITI WILL TAKE 25% OF SALES.

 

2. MARKETPLACE

WE ARE CREATING OUR OWN NFT MARKETPLACE ALLOWING USERS TO BUY WHAT THEY SEE STRAIGHT FROM THE APP WITH A CREDIT CARD. 

ARTISAN GETS FULL SALE MINUS A 10% COMMISSION WHICH GOES TO LEGAL GRAFFITI.


3. BUSINESS PARTNERSHIPS

BRANDS CAN WORK IN PARTNERSHIP WITH LEGAL GRAFFITI ASSOCIATED ARTISTS TO CREATE MEDIA AT THEIR LOCATION/S. 

LEGAL GRAFFITI WOULD THEN GET PAID FOR EACH PARTNERSHIP AND COMMISSION ARTISTS TO CREATE MEDIA. 

Why does it matter?

2 months ago

Legal Graffiti matters because we need more things that bring us joy. Is the current social media landscape really making us happy? Legal Graffiti is like an intellectual Pokémon Go. Its mission is to bring people culture, share our culture, and most importantly bring us joy and surprise.
