Welcome to faust.

Our work speaks for itself but if you need proof here’s what others have said.

Individually we’re Bob Faust and Drew Waiss. Together we’re Faust, passionate re-inventors, creating absorptive visual communication experiences through the cumulative powers of art and design.

Our work solves problems, instigates change and inspires community …it sets the stage for a genuine human experience that leaves an indelible imprint or memory.
