SillyCar Design :: About Us 2017-12-08T19:26:37+00:00

We are SillyCar Design. (From left to right in the photo above) Melissa, Jack, Joel and Grace. We are also the Glastetters. Family is why we do this. We love each other and strive every day to live a happy and healthy life! We are all hard workers and always give our best effort at whatever we do.

Melissa

The glue that holds us all together.

Melissa like most wives and mothers, is the glue that holds our family and this business together. She is an organizer of events, a disciplinarian and a funny lady with the best smile Joel has ever seen! She is also a Certified Clinical Hemo-Dialysis Technician. That means she holds peoples lives in her hands. Thank goodness there are people like her who are willing to stick other folks with needles (among other things) and who care so much that they are willing to do things that most others would not in order to make someone else feel better. Melissa makes most of the strategic decisions for how SillyCar Design and our household should move forward.

Jack

The future of SillyCar Design.(His own words)

Jack dislikes most of the designs that SillyCar Design creates. This is not necessarily because the designs are bad. He usually doesn’t even have an explanation for why he doesn’t like a design. We suspect that he just really wants to get back to whatever video game he might be conquering or stop motion animated movie he might be creating and that he thinks that saying he doesn’t like a design when we ask is his best means to that end…. Jack is very creative too. He designs levels for video games using his toys and other random household items, he creates incredible worlds in Minecraft, and builds fantastic creations with his Legos. He has also started learning several coding languages. Jack is in charge of making everyone at SillyCar Design laugh their butts off at random times during each day by saying things that a person just can’t help but laugh at. He is also in charge of the snuggling. He is very good at his position 🙂

Joel

Creator of things.

Joel is the one who handles most of the design work at SillyCar Design. He is likely the one you will deal with if you hire us to do a project for you. He loves coming up with new designs for our customers. If you have an idea for something computer or graphics related and aren’t sure how to accomplish it, Joel’s experience in Computer Science, Commercial Printing, Graphic Design, Music and Sound Effects Production is bound to be beneficial in accomplishing your goal. Joel also does general computer consulting and is capable of figuring out lots of stuff with software and hardware. He is always learning something new. He can build and repair all different kinds of computers, and if you’re interested in building your own classic arcade machine, Joel can help with that too! Need a cool case for your iPod nano made out of an Altoids box? No Problem. What about a new jingle for your next TV or radio commercial? No Problem. To sum up, Joel has a lot of different talents and is a very hard worker.

Can you guess what movie the resumĂ© is modeled after? Hint, the sounds are taken straight from the movie. If you can figure it out, send us a message using the contact form and let us know. We’d love to hear from you!

Grace

Creative opinion giver.

Grace is by far the most creative person at SillyCar Design. She can make something cool out of almost anything… Literally. She has created lots of super cool stuff such as music videos, doll houses, fairy gardens, stuffed animals, ceramic things, and many others. All of her creations are fussed over with a fine toothed comb right down to the finest details. She is also a natural dancer who moves beautifully even when there is no music playing. She has honed her singing voice and acting chops as well. If you’ve been lucky enough to see one of her performances, you know this already. If you haven’t, give us a call to find out when you might be able to catch one of her plays or musicals!

Wiebe

The Hunter.

Wiebe is in charge of jumping on the back of Joel’s chair while he works. Then he also handles climbing down onto Joel’s lap and taking a nap while Joel works. He is the most agile and accurate jumper we’ve ever seen. He is not very creative, but if he were allowed outside, he would survive the longest. His hunting skills are easy to see just by his actions in the house. That being said, he is also super gentle and never hurts anyone unless it’s incidental contact while playing or if you happen to be holding him when he gets scared and feels he must get down immediately.

Nora

Owner of the house.

Nora is in charge of pretending that she doesn’t know she’s not allowed on the dining room table even though both of the other cats know. She definitely thinks she owns the house and acts like she pays the mortgage. She is a super snuggler and loves to give kisses. This cat never hurts anyone, except when her brothers (Wiebe and Tobey) get out of line…. her brother Jack gets a pass even when he gets out of line. She must know how sensitive he is and how much he loves her. Nora is also in charge of foot security when we sleep. She can be found curled up at someones feet (usually Melissa, but sometimes Jack or Grace too) every single night whether Wiebe joins her or not.

Tobey

Hair Cannon.

Tobey is a gentle giant and chief of security for the kids. He loves Grace and guards her bedroom all day and sleeps with her all night most nights. Other nights he sleeps with Jack up in his loft bed. That is unless a non-family member is in the house, then he disappears like a ninja never to be seen again until that person is either gone or stays in the house overnight. Only then will he even consider showing his face to them…. Tobey can stand on the floor flat footed and reach up to the top of the kitchen counter and stare at you like “what?…. I’m just stretching”. Joel thinks he is part Cougar. For such a big boy, he is the biggest scaredy cat, but also the most gentle. Jack can pick him up completely wrong and flip him upside down and almost drop him and Tobey will not lift a paw to him. He is also in charge of shedding insane amounts of hair on everything in the house. He’s very good at his job!

Well, if you’ve read this far, that could only mean one of two things. A. You’re family. or B. You care as much about researching who will be working on your project as we care about doing a great job on every project we work on. Thank you for taking the time to research us!
