Abovo Celebrates a Milestone: Silver Addy at the District Level

In a recent showcase of talent and creativity, our team at Abovo has been honored with the Silver Award at the American Advertising Federation (AAF) District Level. This comes on the heels of our Gold Award victory at the Regional Level, thanks to our collaborative project with Kokada, the brand known for its delightful coconut-based spreads. This significant district-level recognition marks our first in this arena, joining our collection of 24 regional awards and spotlighting the innovative spirit and talent thriving right here in North Dakota.
