IN-FO.CO

IN-FO.CO (Inventory Form & Content) is an independent design and editorial studio. Our work encompasses graphic design, spatial design, strategy, and content development—frequently in tandem, and always with an exceptionally high level of attention to detail.

Founded in Los Angeles by Adam Michaels and Shannon Harvey, IN-FO.CO extends the National Design Award-winning practice Project Projects (New York City, 2004–2017). In addition, we publish books on topics in art, architecture, design, and music through our imprint Inventory Press. The studio's work has been collected by MoMA Library, Design Museum London, The Vassar College Art Library, and New York University Fales Library, amongst others, and an extensive set of Adam Michaels's Project Projects work was acquired by the Art Institute of Chicago for its permanent collection.

IN-FO.CO is a certified Woman-Owned Business (WBE-NC).
