1. AVEK’S LOGO
AVEK is part of Kopiosto. Thus AVEK’s logo uses the same elements as Kopiosto’s brand style. In the primary version of the logo Kopiosto is written below AVEK. A secondary logo, lacking the word “Kopiosto”, can be used in exceptional situations (in small size, when AVEK’s connection to Kopiosto is clear).
The logo is surrounded by an area where no other elements may be added. This safe zone is a part of the original logo.
Please don’t use any logos other than these official logos or change the original logos (for example their colour or dimensions). The logo may not be used on a busy background or on a background where the logo doesn’t stand out.
Please don’t add any text or element after or near the logo, as this might cause the original logo to become indistinct.
Variations of the logo are not allowed.

Pictures in CMYK format and other colour options can be found from the logo package at the beginning of this page. For additional information and assistance, please contact Kopiosto’s communications: viestinta (at) kopiosto.fi.
Several font styles may be used of Roboto, but they should be used with consideration so that the appearance isn’t confusing.
You may use Eczar in headings. It is used only in the regular style and it is never bolded. Eczar is used only in headings and always in UPPER CASE.
Below are the most used font combinations.
AVEK’s colours are consistent with Kopiosto’s cheerful and recognizable colour palette. The main colour of AVEK is blue and it’s used the most.
Other brand colours are used to fulfill the colour palette, but not in a way that causes the look to become confusing.
The additional colours (orange, green and purple) are used only in infographics, and only if the five primary colours are insufficient.
For text we use the dark blue colour on white, light yellow or light blue – or if necessary other dark brand colours. On blue, dark blue or red we use white text or if necessary other light brand colours. We take into account accessibility when choosing text colours.
Avoid using red-yellow combination, it’s a sign of warning symbol.

- Graphs should have a white line separating different areas if necessary.
- If text is placed on top of graphs, it must be white.
- All text outside of graphs must be dark blue violet.
- All text related to graphs must be in Roboto Condensed.
- For infographics, you may use a colour scale of either reddish to dark or dark to reddish. In other words, infographics may not use a ‘circus colour’ scheme.
EXAMPLES OF USING COLOUR COMBINATIONS
All elements of our infographics, such as graphs and pictogrammes, follow the shape of our logo and use brand colours.
Our photos are colour pictures of authors and works. Also high quality editorial pictures (of events etc.) may be used.

EXAMPLES OF USING PHOTOS IN LAYOUTS
Sometimes, especially in social media, a need for stock photos occurs. It is preferable to then think of how well the photo suits AVEK’s brand look.
- We only use colour pictures, ie. no black and whites, no processed images and no extractions.
- We aim for a happy mood, but avoid fake perky stock photos (eg. office clerks in suits throwing high-fives)
- We prefer natural light (no to bleak fluorescent lamp light)
- No collages or pictures done on computer, no drawings
- There may be an element in one of AVEK’s brand colours in the picture. Aim to get the colour scale in sync with AVEK’s brand colours. However, pictures may not be tinted.
Detailed picture may be used. Also ready made infographics may be used, if it is available in AVEK brand colours.
However computer made collages are not used. Also drawings may not be used.
AVEK’s pictogrammes and line graphics or other suitable infographics may be combined with a photo if it is available in AVEK brand colours.
Our pattern, based on the brand elements, can be used when it’s not possible or purposeful to use, for example, a good-quality photograph.
The pattern is cropped tightly so that the pattern is big, and a maximum of 3−4 “bars” can be seen.
