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

    Skateboards Make For Smiles - Bordo Bello 2

    Bordo Bello is an AIGA hosted skateboard art fundraiser for Youth Design Denver, a designer summer internship program, and Access Gallery, a local initiative promoting the power of people with disabilities. For our second year as participating artists we crafted a highly dimensional and extra minimal installation. Our decks could be construed as purely aesthetic or could be utilized as shelves. This years installation was created in collaboration with close friend and fabricator Kristian Kluver. Artwork was donated and the proceeds from the sales were directed to Youth Design Denver and the Access Gallery.
