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

    Boulder Library Foundation Identity

    The Boulder Library Foundations was founded in 1974 to enhance the Library's offerings by providing funding for concerts, films, and other special events that are free to the public. Such events complement the Library's resources by providing educational, cultural, and civic programs to enrich the lives of the entire Boulder community.

    We were asked to create a new identity that would help separate the foundation from the library itself and modernize the brand as a whole.
