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

    Inyangi Identity

    Inyangi is a line of locally produced, handmade skincare products using only the best organic ingredients. The word inyangi is drawn from the Zulu term "inyanga" literally meaning "the man of the trees." In South African Engilsh the term takes on the meaning of traditional healer. Inyangi is all about the purity of healing with love and a little bit of magic. We strove to build all three concepts, purity, magic, and love into the identity system.
