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 Logomark (3D) x KLVR

    When it comes to design/build and one-off fabrication we turn to our pal Kristian Kluver. This time we handed KLVR a to-scale vector illustration of our logomark and requested hallow, 4" deep, radius'd, satin white lacquered letters and mark. We left the custom mounting hardware and installation up to Kristian. As usual, he exceeded our every expectation.
