Design + Development

Forde + Nicol create crafted and considered design for print and digital.




Forde + Nicol is a design and digital development studio located on the lands of the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung people of the Kulin nation. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and pay our respects to Elders past and present, and extend this respect to other Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Australians.

At the heart of our process is a commitment to simple, smart and engaging design solutions. We work closely with our clients to craft enduring design outcomes that exceed their expectations.

Forde + Nicol is directed by Dominic Forde and Jonathan Nicol. Our work has been recognised by AGDA, Tokyo Type Directors Club, Create awards and featured in numerous industry publications and books.

Assemble Papers website

Assemble Papers began life as a print publication that interrogated better, fairer system changes for housing and beyond. As the content covering art, design, architecture, urbanism, and the environment became increasingly delivered online it was necessary to update the website design. We worked closely with Assemble Papers’ editorial team to redesign the site, which is home to several hundred articles spanning over ten years. The redesign also encompassed a comprehensive overhaul of the website’s Content Management System. The new platform includes a suite of elegant publishing tools, that allow the website’s content to be easily updated by the editorial team.
