Tim Fullerton, Lead Designer
Tim is a versatile web designer, taking Silverline’s projects from conception to execution. He’s got a gift for problem solving, and he excels at bridging the gap between design and programming, particularly with Flash and other interactive projects. He’s also great at turning around projects faster than you’d expect.
What’s more, he’s always looking for ways to make every project better. In fact, he says the projects he gets to work on at Silverline are the most creative and interesting of his career.
Tim also happens to be our resident rock star, playing guitar and singing vocals with the alt-rock band he founded with two high school buddies, Falkirk.
Brian Voelker, Lead Developer
You could say that the movie “Toy Story” changed Brian’s life. Pixar’s stunning characters created out of nothing more than computer code were pure genius, and they inspired Brian’s lifelong love of video and 3-D animation. Along the way, he’s added HTML, PHP, Flash and a host of programming languages to his repertoire, allowing him to create dynamic, eye-catching websites for clients.
Brian thrives on collaboration. Not one to be stuck in a lonely cubicle, Brian loves that Silverline is a team effort. His favorite part of the job is being able to discuss with his colleagues the best way to tackle a problem.
For him, there’s no such thing as a challenge that’s too big. As he says, “There’s no issue of whether or not we’ll be able to solve a problem. It’s just a matter of figuring out how.”
Zakery Kates, Developer
Zak remembers being a young kid and telling people that one day he would go to school to learn “how to talk to computers”. He ended up studying Industrial/Organizational Psychology at DePaul University, but his desire to create something out of nothing wasn’t fulfilled. He took one class to learn “HTML – The Basics” in his Junior year and instantly fell in love. Along the way, he’s added HTML, PHP, jQuery and a host of programming languages to his repertoire, allowing him to create dynamic, eye-catching websites for clients.
One of Zak’s favorite quotes:
“There’s no issue of whether or not we’ll be able to solve a problem. It’s just a matter of figuring out how.” ~ Brian Voelker
Zak believes all things on a site should be functional, and the main focus should always be the user. If you always focus on the end user you’ll never lose. Under that same philosophy, clients of Silverline Creative are always treated with the upmost importance and respect – Zak loves to go the extra mile to make sure your reaction is “Wow!” every time!
