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

    Proper Transportation

    We consider ourselves lucky to have been part of Artcrank Denver. For the Artcrank Denver Poster Show we decided to focus on the idea of the bicycle as a sustainable and alternative means of transportation. To do so we opted to photograph our close friend, Mike Moore of tres birds workshop and his two daughters, Miria and Maya on their daily commute. Mike and his family are a model of sustainability and they use the bicycle in amazing ways. We produced posters in 6 colorways, each output as a 3 color screen-print, pulled by hand, and on 100% recycled paper.
