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.

Back to Back Theatre Company

This innovative Australian theatre company needed a new identity and website to represent them on a global stage. We worked closely with Back to Back to produce a comprehensive identity system that utilises bold typography and a stripped back design to allow Jeff Busby’s stunning photography of the company’s performances to shine through.

The website redesign also encompassed a complete rebuild of the company’s outdated Content Management System, so that in-house staff can now update the site with ease. The Back to Back rebrand was very well received, and the website has been recognised by Communication Arts for its exemplary design.
