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.

Salus is an Australian skincare company with a commitment to creating earth friendly products sourced from local ingredients. Our brief was to create an eCommerce website that reflects the brand’s forward-thinking approach. We utilised Salus’ extensive image library to help tell the brand story in a visual way, using gentle animations and transitions to create a frictionless user experience. We migrated the site from a legacy eCommerce system to the Shopify platform, which allowed Salus to grow their eCommerce offering and streamline their fulfilment processes.
