Foster got his design start managing a flower shop in New York before he joined Chicago-based Event Creative in 2008. As senior event designer, he handles most of the company’s nonprofit business, designing around 50 events and galas a year. In the past year, he designed the Steppenwolf Gala for the sixth time and designed and produced the tech company Bosch’s first conference in North America, Bosch ConnectedWorld Chicago.

On his design philosophy: “Decor should engage guests and create a feeling of excitement that is then attached to a particular organization or brand. Also, go big or go home.”
