With only 12 inches of  average annual rainfall, Boise can have some problems handling the occasional torrential downpour. This is a photo of Front Street taken from our parking lot this afternoon. We had so much rain in the foothills in such a short time that the water blew a manhole cover off the storm drain and we had a “fountain” 3-feet high in the middle of street, which created the scene above. Note the white Subaru in the distance which stalled out while pretending it was a speedboat!

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.
