Job Opening at Foerstel Design

Foerstel Design in Boise has an opening for a Web Developer. From the job listing on Craigslist:


That’s right, we said full time, baby. Foerstel is a graphic design and marketing firm in Boise, Idaho with a 25+ year history of outstanding work for food, high tech, real estate, arts and entertainment, and sustainable clients that are local, national and even international.

We work hard, we collaborate, we have fun. Our employees enjoy an open and relaxed work environment, paid vacation and holidays, and great health benefits. Many also enjoy bacon, but that is not a hard requirement. We are looking for a web developer who knows their stuff and can hit the ground running. We work on a wide variety of projects for an even wider variety of clients, so boredom is one thing you won’t be concerned with.

Full details about the job and how to apply can be found in the original  Craigslist posting.

New Hires at Mitchell + Palmer

And in other new hire news…

Mitchell + Palmer has added to their staff recently:

Andy Petersen has joined the agency in what I’m assuming is an account service type of role. The smoke signals and tea leaves weren’t quite clear on this one, but we’ll go with what we know…  Previously, Andy worked on the account side at Donahoe Pace.  He is a graduate of Boise State University.

Jeremy Oliver has also joined Mitchell + Palmer as a graphic designer. Jeremy is a recent graduate of Boise State University and certain to get picked on for being the new guy, at least until a newer one comes along.

Congratulations to both.

New Hires at Rizen Creative

There are a couple of new faces to be seen around Rizen Creative:

John Briggs has joined Rizen as an interactive designer, and brings his wide range of website design and programming experience to their staff.  John is a graduate of Boise State University and board member of AIGA Idaho.

Jin You has also joined Rizen as a graphic designer. Jin has experience in both print and digital design, and is also a Boise State University graduate.

Congratulations to both.

By hook or by crook, by book or by NOOK

Maybe it’s the bookworm in me, but the more I see the latest work from Barnes & Noble for their NOOK tablet, I more find myself liking it.

This spot is part of Barnes & Noble’s Read Forever™ campaign, billed as “a celebration of reading.”

And while this spot is specifically for the NOOK Color tablet, it doesn’t take away from the core of the company, the products they offer or what you do with those products.

In addition to the :30 version above, there’s also a :60 version:

Well done to everyone involved in creating this campaign.

And yes, dear readers, I know this is outside the typical realm of coverage on this site, but I felt it was too good not to share. Feel free to leave a comment and let others know what you think.
