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.

Can’t Touch This

Can’t Touch This are New York based photo retouchers with an enviable client list and folio full of beautiful images. They contacted Forde + Nicol to design and develop a new portfolio website. We designed a new typographic palette and a flexible grid which allowed larger quality images than their previous site. A fly out navigation bar kept the site as clean looking as possible and a responsive lightbox gallery was implemented to showcase the studios high end retouching skills.
