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.

Let’s Play

Let’s Play: The art of our time was the inaugural summer exhibition of 2018 at Bunjil Place Gallery. Conceived and curated by Rodney James the exhibition featured leading Australian and International artists who’s work conveys how toys, role-play, technology and the imagination have become a central component of the art of our time. Our job, working with the gallery was to design and produce this 48pp publication documenting the show and works. We then adapted our cover design and title treatment for social media advertising and created titles and work captions for the walls of the gallery so the show had a consistent identity across all touch points.
