Needmore is an eight person design studio in rainy Portland, Oregon. We focus on creating digital and physical experiences that tell authentic stories about our clients’ brands and product; stories about sipping your first cup of hot coffee on a cold morning, delighting in a fresh baked brownie, or journeying out to a distant farm to sip wine made from nearby vines.
Needmore was founded over a decade ago by the not-yet-hitched Raymond and Kandace Brigleb. Raymond had sold his Minneapolis coffee shop and was a barista at a little-known roastery named Stumptown. He produced 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. They got together and began crafting bespoke sites for local (and international) brands, bands, and makers.
As we’ve grown, we’ve put together an eclectic band of designers and programmers; today, our team has a heady mix of experience in coffee, graphic design, music, anthropology, education, film studies, and software design.
He also hosts The Job, an award-winning podcast produced by Needmore, featuring interviews with local celebrities and tastemakers.
