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.

Geelong Cellar Door


Geelong Cellar Door (G.C.D) is a new wine bar and store located in Geelong that launched in 2016 featuring a beautiful fit out from our friends at Bloom Interior Design. They asked us to supply an identity design and website that matched the sophisticated interior.

Through close collaboration with G.C.D we produced an elegant logo that was applied to signage, uniforms,  glassware,  business cards, menus, gift cards and press adverts.

G.C.D had a great supply of images produced by photographers Armelle Habib and Ferne Millen. We featured these images of the bar at large scale throughout the website.

The website was built to make it as easy as possible for G.C.D to update themselves. We integrated the gallery on the G.C.D website with their instagram account, enabling instagram posts to populate automatically.
