Happy New Year from all of us at Foerstel!

To inspire hopes for a Happy New Year, here are a some resolutions heard here around the office:
Janell – Organic Sales Manager + Animal Enthusiast

– In the spirit of the season and the New Year, I will find humor and joy in each and everyday.
– I will continue to inspire others to embrace the principals of distinctive quality marketing and branding.
MarkVP, Creative Team + Deaf to High Frequencies
– I will practice guitar daily instead of sporadically.
– I resolve to be less sarcastic in 2010. (note, this itself may be sarcasm)
– I will write in my blog at least every other day.
Linda – Director, Creative Team + Distracted by Shiny Things
– I will carry my creativity into my “off work” hours (I’ve been looking into taking watercolor/acrylic/pastel classes!)
Janet – Account Team + Alias Unknown
– I will fill my newly emptied nest with some mildly inappropriate tom foolery, shenanigans and ballyhoo!
Debbie – Director, Creative team + Imaginary Friend
– I will put pictures in the frame collage I built up my staircase wall 9 months ago.
– I will do more creative activities with my kids to build their appreciation for art.
Claudia – Director, Creative team + Italian Export
– I will speak Italian to my bambine on a more regular basis.
– I will resume en plein air watercolor and graphite sketching.

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.
