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

    Tools (Production)

    We designed our Artcrank Denver 2010 poster series relying on the oversized screen printing prowess of Jason Austin. Jason performed all of our screen preparation, burned and developed 2 immensely oversiized screens each containing 3 images and printed 24, 36" x 36", 2-color (black and gloss) posters for us.

    In total, the series contains 24, 36" x 36" posters. 8 posters/design were screen printed atop 120lb (320 gsm) Stonehenge fine art paper and hand-cut to bleed.
