You can add a figure to the title frame by using the command \titlegraphic{}. The standard behaviour puts the graphic at the bottom. However instead of redefining the default behaviour you can work with \raisebox whereby a \smash is needed:


For "foo" you can use \includegraphics or whatever you want.
