Graphic Design / Prepress
Drew (firstname.lastname@example.org) moved from Rockaway Beach, Oregon to Newberg in 2009 where he finished high school at C. S. Lewis Academy. Following high school, Drew attended George Fox University where he earned his B.A. in Graphic Design.
Having done his graphic design internship at Allegra Newberg in 2014, it seemed fitting to him to stay in the Newberg area. He obtained a graphic design position with Allegra Newberg in 2015.
Drew has a passion for how graphic design applies to marketing, and how it enhances the business world. Serving customer's needs is as equally important to him.

Graphic Design / Prepress
Mike (email@example.com) began his design career in 1986 at Printistry in McMinnville, and a couple of years later, he transferred to Printistry's Tualatin office as branch manager and graphic designer. In 1995, he was hired as production coordinator at Barclay Press in Newberg, and he soon transferred to a graphic design position there. In 2002, Barclay Press's design and printing operations were sold to Larry Monger, and it became Vineyard Graphics. In 2009, Karl & Nancy Hughes bought Vineyard Graphics, and Allegra Newberg was born.
Since 2014, he has worked remotely from his home in Central Oregon. He spends his time creating new things in Illustrator, InDesign, and PhotoShop. Occasionally he picks up a pencil and pen, for some hand-lettering or illustration.
When not at work, Mike enjoys motorcycling (Yamaha XT225, and Honda CT110), mountain biking, kayaking, and hiking with his wife.
Amanda (firstname.lastname@example.org) has been helping Allegra Newberg clients with their website needs since 2015.

Her experience with design, writing, visual media, and programming allow her to balance all the essential skills necessary to create a great website.
She really values listening, being flexible, and having a "YES, we can do that!" kind of attitude. She loves helping people find the solutions they are looking for.
Amanda loves spending time with her husband and two children, writing, exploring outdoors, creating art, and practicing kung fu.
Bindery Manager / Quality Control
Bethany has worked at Allegra Newberg since 2013. She is responsible for all paper cutting, boxing, folding, booklets, finalizing products, and ensuring all products are how they should be. She gets to use a lot of fancy machinery, including the heavy-duty binder and cutting tools. She really likes the flexibility of her work. She has worked in other print shops, as a bank teller, and as a stay-at-home mom with her kiddos.
She has two boys, and she loves hanging out with her family. She makes rag quilts in her spare time and has made close to 200 of them—which she sells and gives as gifts to friends.
Manager / Co-Owner
Nancy and her husband, Karl, started a new chapter in their lives in January 2009, when they became owners of Allegra Newberg. Nancy is the manager, primarily handling personnel and other essential duties.
She loves Newberg's community spirit, and has been active in the Newberg Kiwanis Club since 2010.
Nancy and Karl have two children, and three grandchildren—who are all exceptional and very good looking, of course!
President / Co-Owner
As the president of Allegra Newberg, Karl ensures that his employees have the tools they need to do an outstanding job. He loves working with the fun people on his team, and gets a lot of satisfaction from helping customers achieve what they need. He manages sales, customer relations, and a few other things.
Educated to become a physicist, Karl quickly realized he had to find a career path that would keep dinner on the table. So instead he became a software guy—for over 35 years! His days of coding involved many international adventures, and often found himself on all sorts of escapades as he and his team found creative ways to sell their software. Throughout the years he has had many other quirky jobs before opening Allegra Newberg in January 2009.
Karl has always had a knack for building things, from building computers as a child to building his own boat as an adult. He has a solid reputation as someone who can fix anything and everything.
Locally, Karl has been involved in Rotary since 2009, and has been a Board Member of Chehalem Youth and Family Services (CYFS) for many years. He enjoys how Newberg is full of people who participate in charitable works and are community minded.

Fynn acts as the Allegra greeter and general overseer. His keen eye catches any signs or sound that a treat might be near. He manages on 3 legs better than many dogs do on 4!
