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

    Bodoni Poster Modern

    Bodoni Poster Modern is classic yet contemporary display typeface based on the shapes and proportions of Bodoni Poster. The design of this typeface was intended to serve as an exercise in deriving something new and modern from something old that once epitomized the very idea of modernism. The original impetus behind this typeface was the production of text and title graphics for the Denver Art Museum's recent modernism exhibition entitled, "What is Modern?"
