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.

In 2023 Boroondara Arts required a campaign and identity that could be varied and applied accross two seasons. The Woi-wurrung word ‘Boroondara’ means ‘Where the ground is thickly shaded’. and this has informed the brief for the visual identity development. We used a torn paper illustration technique to create two graphic images to be applied to the two program covers. A flowering gumnut is used to represent the first half of the year followed by an image of a growing gumnut for the second half. The identity was applied to posters, programs and digital screens for the year.
