Graphic Design

Nothing keeps your business or organization in the minds of your customers like a memorable, eye-catching logo.  A good logo separates your company from the pack, making your brand instantly recognizable. The talented graphic design team at The Universal Group is excited to work with you to bring about the perfect visual representation of your brand. Experts in both PC and Mac graphic design programs, we specialize in logo design, branding, T-shirt design, annual reports or any print material.
