Working at Foerstel — The UN-corporate Office

Our studio is a passionate, dedicated, informal workplace that is more interested in changing the way people think about our planet than winning design awards (although we do have several under our belt). Although we are very serious about deadlines, delivering exceptional work, and growing as a company, we pride ourselves on having fun while creating and supporting one another while keeping an eye on our common goal. Bonus: we treat ourselves to bi-weekly massages, lunches, occasional donuts and outings to inspiring places!

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.
