Since 2017, Relish has been tasked with developing marketing collateral for Barkman Concrete, with the aim of elevating the brand to speak with a greater level of sophistication and clarity than in previous years. To that end, a minimalist design aesthetic was employed, allowing for plenty of white space and letting the stunning product photography carry the day.
San Francisco Chronicle
The Press by the San Francisco Chronicle, provides a collection of winery reviews, maps and recommendations to tourists and locals alike wanting to tour and taste California’s wine country. Relish built a one-stop travel resource—a website solution that allows users to create, plan, customize and map out their own wine tour. This enhanced experience was paired with visual layout capability for mapping purposes and an easy-to-use application format.
Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Relish worked closely with the Museum staff and printing company Friesens to produce a book to chronicle the journey from conception to inauguration of the museum in, From Darkness to Light: The Building of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

Kicking off the Manitoba Museum’s newly improved and expanded Alloway Hall, the World’s Giant Dinosaurs exhibit presented a touring collection of the world’s largest dinosaurs. Relish developed a strategy to articulate the educational aspect of the exhibit through fun, captivating creative executions, each tailored to suit the wide range of media employed for the campaign.
Liquor and Gaming Authority of Manitoba
The Liquor and Gaming Authority of Manitoba wanted 18- to 24-year-olds to think about how and when they drink, by promoting Canada’s national Low-Risk Alcohol Drinking Guidelines. Relish came up with a campaign to approach the guidelines centred on, “It’s not how, it’s how many,” showing young adults imbibing in a silly way.
Siloam Mission embarked on a capital campaign with funds going towards the construction of a two-storey building that now links the current facility to a newly renovated dining room, adding needed space for programs and services.
