Our clients are diverse but mainly group into two categories, small to medium business owners and Government and University academic departments and researchers. This is because our Creative Director + Owner Elaine has been specializing in logo and brand design for almost 20 years, while she had a full-time career working in think tanks at the University of Toronto and Ryerson University.

Elaine’s reputation as a reliable, fast and creative designer, and unique specializations (as a brand designer, web designer + developer, AODA specialist and artistic report designer) has led to the creation of UNIVERSE and she is grateful to all her clients who recognize her style and level of professionalism.
