Principal / 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.
Principal / Project Manager
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.
Silke’s first name is German, and her middle name is Hawaiian. She grew up in the countryside of southern Oregon and always dreamed of the big city. She moved to Portland in 2007 and recently graduated from Portland State University with a BA in Graphic Design.
She took her first web design course in the fall of 2012 and has been fascinated with all the possibilities in web and interactive design ever since. She will still always love a beautiful print piece, but the ways of the internet intrigue her. Silke’s favorite design elements are simple and clever.
Besides design and the internet Silke enjoys the great outdoors, ice cream, IPAs and film photography.
Shawn grew up in the middle of nowhere, Oregon in a small farming community not far from the coast. Between building tree forts, bike riding, and going fishing, he bought his first computer and quickly discovered he had a passion for web design and development.
His professional experience in the field began while working at Yahoo! for a number of years, and he has been happily working as a developer since.
When he isn’t working on making awesome content for the web, Shawn loves painting pictures, road trips, writing and performing music, and getting lost in Antique stores while searching for a good suitcase to turn into a guitar amp.
Gregor is a pretty ok guy originally from Phoenix, AZ. He relocated to Portland, OR in 2008, because wouldn’t you?
Gregor likes to make the internet beautiful. He also likes comics, riding bikes, whiskey, being a creep, dogs, cats, vidja games, D&D, and tons of other nerd junk.
