We Are Needmore

Over a decade ago, a web obsessed coffee guy and story focused anthropologist meet. The result is Needmore, a consulting and design studio based in Portland, Oregon.

Meet the team.

Kandace Brigleb

Partner / Producer

With degrees in Cultural Anthropology and Linguistics, Kandace is keen on sifting through language and culture to unearth the heart of a brand’s story. As producer, she works closely with our team and clients from kick-off and beyond. You’ll also find her speaking at conferences, on podcasts, and as co-host of Unpacking Coffee.

Raymond Brigleb

Partner / Creative Director

Raymond 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 (most years were spent during the early heydays of Stumptown Coffee) and prefers to spin vinyl whenever possible.

Ray is cohost of Unpacking Coffee (a coffee focused podcast) and host of The Job (featuring interesting interviews with fascinating Portlanders).

Melissa Allen

UX Designer

Melissa is 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.

Gritchelle Fallesgon

Art Director

Gritchelle is a versatile designer who enjoys creating beautiful designs for print and digital. She 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.

Marian & Eric Lucas

Development & Accounting / HR

From their idyllic farm outside of Portland, this duo packs a heady 1-2 punch. One part accounting and HR guru, the other part WordPress aficionado. We like to think of theirs as our remote office and appreciate the benefit of farm fresh eggs delivery.
