Our History

cybergraph advertising marketing graphic design history

Cybergraph Advertising, Inc. was founded in 1997 as Cybergraph Advertising and Design after its president, George Michael, left the shopping center industry to create an ad agency unlike any other. His experience as a mall marketing director for six years and attaining the prestigious CMD designation (Certified Marketing Director) from the International Council of Shopping Centers brings a unique understanding to Cybergraph of the shopping center and retail industries. It was his goal to make our clients more successful than they thought possible through marketing and visual advertising at affordable rates.

Today, Cybergraph operates as three divisions, Cybergraph Advertising, MallSigns.com and RaleighBigPrints.com. Cybergraph Advertising is our main creative engine generating logo designs, print ad campaigns, marketing plans and other creative services. MallSigns.com services retailers and shopping centers nationwide through it’s online catalog and ordering system. RaleighBigPrints leverages our in-house large-format printing capabilities to provide affordable, high quality printing to businesses for marketing, trade shows and fine art displays.

In today’s competitive environment we understand that a business' survival is all about branding and maintaining top of mind awareness through marketing and social media. The most successful brands are clear and consistent about whom they are and the messages they deliver. At Cybergraph we help our clients get the best exposure for a reasonable investment. By being innovators, Cybergraph has cut costs and passes those savings along to our clients while providing unmatched quality.
