We Are Needmore

Needmore Designs is a design studio based in Portland, Oregon. We focus on designing and producing modern websites for coffee, food & drink, and lifestyle brands throughout the Pacific Northwest and worldwide.

We got our start when Raymond sold his Minneapolis coffee shop and was a barista at a little-known roastery named Stumptown, producing their first website in between shifts. In the meantime, Kandace was exploring the world of cultural anthropology, learning to see the world through the eyes of others and understand their perspective. Together, they’ve been crafting bespoke sites for local (and international) brands, bands, and makers for over a decade.

Meet the team.

Kandace Brigleb

Partner, Studio Director

With degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Linguistics, Kandace is keen on sifting through language and culture to find that which makes each of us unique. (With a thesis on online communication under her belt, she was studying the internet when AOL Instant Messenger was cutting edge.)

She acts as guide and coconspirator throughout your projects and will gladly meet you over a cup of coffee or glass of wine and chat.

Raymond Brigleb

Partner, Creative Director

Raymond personally oversees the production of every website. He is a lifelong technology geek and design nerd who has hopped trains, documented obscure operating systems, and built websites before most of you were born (seriously…1996). He has interwoven his years in web design with long stints at coffee houses and prefers to spin vinyl whenever possible.

He also hosts The Job, an award-winning podcast produced by Needmore, featuring interviews with local celebrities and tastemakers.

Matt Drouhard

Developer

Matt is a web developer, amateur gardener, pie aficionado, and pro-bono philosopher.

Gritchelle Fallesgon

Designer

Gritchelle is a versatile designer who enjoys creating beautiful designs for print and digital and has a passion for typography, illustrations, photography and color. Born and raised in the Golden State, she lived in San Francisco for 11 years and recently relocated to Portland, Oregon. When not designing, she can be found exploring Portland, shooting photography, or on her bike training for her next race.

Melissa Allen

Designer

Somewhat of a world traveler (by way of airplane ticket standards) and avid adventurer. This native Wisconsinite relocated to the beautiful Pacific Northwest, where she has fallen in love with the mountains and spends her free time hiking and biking around Portland enjoying exquisite coffee and craft beer. Along the way, Melissa spent a year exploring the vast lands of Europe earning a Masters in Philosophy and Sociology. Her passion lies in print and web design.
