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

    Q Fund Giving Icons

    The Q Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to collaborate with communities in turmoil and build school-centered, self-sustaining environments that nurture, educate and empower vulnerable children by honoring diversity, cultivating creativity, and fostering respect for the earth.

    To assist the Q fund in communicating donor giving opportunities a series of icons was designed. These icons will help build a clear and emotional connection to the Q Fund's various sectors in which donations could be applied. Ultimately, this imagery will serve to refine and clarify The Q Fund's overarching goals and subsequent messaging.
