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!
