After a short marketing hiatus, Idaho Trust came to us ready to make some major changes in their collateral and in-branch displays; specifically a more modern look and consumer-friendly way to present a new structuring for their financial products.
Industry research and subsequent brainstorming took us in a fresh new direction that avoided the same old stock images used for most bank marketing presentations. At our recommendation, an integral part of the process was the development of a simple messaging device that would be easily recognized as part of the branded campaign. Voilá! The iTrust campaign was born. As for the iTrust brand look, we wanted to do something different that would stand out, so we combined a vibrant color palette with whimsical images to inspire interest and help define the selected financial products. Plus, how often do you get to use fish, pig, and lion images to represent banking?

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.
