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

    Jamie Kripke Identity

    Jamie Kripke's work explores the space that exists between reality and fiction. As an artist and photographer Jamie investigates this space, imagines what it could be, and then creates accordingly. The duality apparent in Jamie's work is equally experienced in the man himself - pragmatic, yet in a perpetual state of discovery. In designing Jamie's new identity we sought to create something classic with just a bit of quirk to represent the shared characteristics of the creator and his creations. Through the manipulation of a lowercase, italicized version of Bodoni a harmonic and appropriate balance was achieved.
