Who we are.

Pixels & Relish is a full-service branding and graphic design studio that merges the worlds of corporate strategy and creative flair. Our mission is to build visuals that are pleasing to the eye while serving purpose and function. We pride ourselves on developing concepts backed by research and discovery.

We break barriers through unconfined creativity.

Our discovery process is anything but ordinary. Before jumping on the computer, we kick things off with hand-drawn sketches and expansive mindmap sessions. We love pushing boundaries and are constantly experimenting with trending techniques and styles.

Dreams of crafting greeting cards and books since childhood.

Valerie Damen—the energy and award-winning designer behind Pixels & Relish—is a master of pixel palettes by day and a writer by night; when the sun goes down, she swaps her mouse for a pen, writing up captivating works of creative non-fiction. She also finds great joy in pickling, jamming, and making butter.

Prisma pencil crayons and typewriters.

The journey of Pixels & Relish stems from childhood dreams. While Valerie's friends were dreaming of becoming astronauts and superstars, she had hopes to craft designs for Penguin Random House and Hallmark. With her fancy box of Prisma pencil crayons, alongside her trusty typewriter, she often illustrated her own collection of greeting cards and imaginary comic books for fun. These childhood passions led her to attend Grant MacEwan University’s Graphic Design & Illustration course where her studies equipped her with skills in drawing, layout design, and conceptualization techniques.

In May 2018, Valerie opened the doors to Pixels and Relish—where she's worked on numerous branding, packaging, and book design projects for clients across the globe.
