apps integrating into our actual lives

In case you don’t find yourself constantly on your iPhone or iPad, now you can actually live amongst your apps and their icons.
The Google Maps icon, that we have all come to know and love for letting us know where we are or where we need to go, has become ubiquitous. Designer Shuchun Hsiao realized this and created the Google Birdhouse Project, an ongoing project to give birds destinations of their own, just like Google Maps does for humans.
The designer explains, “Birds have the most real experience of Google Maps. They can fly through the city and through the streets. A birdhouse becomes their destination.”

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.

He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.

An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.

One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
