VIEW CLOSING LETTER

Monday the 22nd, August 2011

Nearly seven years have passed and much has changed since the inception of Cypher13.

Now we are two, Todd Berger and Lucian Föhr. Together, we have grown considerably - in principle, in thought, and in capacity - but not in number.

We have grown in practice.

We have chosen to pursue quality in all things - over quantity. This has come to define our craft and those with whom we wish to partner and to serve. We have chosen objectivity over subjectivity, accountability over bureaucracy, and personal responsibility over ambiguity.

And so, we have decided to close Cypher13 and to open a new design studio. We will usher in a new era of socially significant, lasting, far-reaching work.

We will strive to do better.

Goodbye Cypher13.

Welcome Berger & Föhr.

Sincerely,
Todd Berger
Lucian Föhr

    Biennial of the Americas Exhibition Graphics

    To further unify the inaugural 2010 Biennial of the Americas central exhibition, The Nature of Things, environmental exhibition graphics were designed. A graphics system ranging from the Biennial's mission, goals, and sponsors to detailed descriptions highlighting the rich history of the bicentennial and centennial nations and partner organizations was designed and implemented. Wayfinding and accessory informational signage including unique women's and men's bathroom iconography to a simple system designating floor levels was designed and implemented as well.
