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.

Handmade Universe

Handmade Universe was an exhibition at State Library Victoria curated by Linda Short and Bethan Johnson. Ranging across disciplines – from craft to coding and from astronomy to botany – the works in the exhibition show how quiet and intimate self-led discovery can be a powerful way to connect with the universal themes of place, culture and identity. F+N were briefed to design the exhibition visual identity and exhibition communications and marketing material. Exhibition didactics, labelling, digital display screens and a publication were all part of the wide scope of work we completed. Exhibition photos by Christian Capurro.
