inference is a multidisciplinary design and research collective with interests ranging from architecture to identity and branding. Our methodology draws on initial research within a project and the result is intended to be of and from that research but not always a direct result. Our working method is that of an inference.

inference works in many design mediums, traditional and contemporary. we do not claim to have a technique and strongly uphold the ideal that todays designers must take back the tools of design. To rely solely on the acceptable tools and modes of today is to submit creative control to those that made the tools. inference therefore seeks to not only be in control of those tools but strives to create new or modify existing tools.

Along with project or research specific partners, inference is Joel Putnam and Scott Schultz.
