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

    The Lighting Agency Website

    To honor the The Lighting Agency's 30th anniversary and celebrate their creed of "reflecting on the past to illuminate the future," we designed TLA a new, dynamic website brought to life by our development partners, Quick Left. The new site features a unique real-time categorical pull from their also new Lighting Blog. This feature propels a fresh and regularly updated index page providing unique insight into the lighting industry. The new site is intended to serve as an industry resource. The "manufacturers" section further supports this concept by offering CMS driven manufacturer details organized categorically. The site highlights TLA's commitment to their rich 30 year history by embracing the refined minimalism of their recently redesigned new/old identity.
