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

    C13 Heart (3D) x KLVR

    Upon completion of our 3D logomark we reached out again to designer friend and fabricator, Kristian Kluver and requested a 48" version of the cypher13 love mark This time we asked KLVR to go black. Kristian nailed the dimensional heart, the tricky to mix, but, pristinely flat satin lacquer, and produced another batch of custom mounting hardware to ensure optimal alignment and safe hanging. Everyone should have one of these. Custom requests entertained.
