Avo Consulting by Bleed

New logo, custom typeface, posters, banners, supergraphics and tote bags for Nordic technology and management consultancy Avo designed by Blee

Avo is a Nordic technology and management consultancy with offices in Norway and Sweden. Since its founding in 2016 it has seen rapid growth, expanding from 5 to 85 employees in three years. It has done this through a strategic rethinking of the way in which consultancy services are delivered, removing the buzz words associated with the industry, solving business problems and then helping to make the necessary changes easy.
