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.

The Coming Back Out Ball

The Coming Back Out Ball is a spectacular social event celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Gender Diverse and Intersex elders. The inaugural Ball was held at the Melbourne Town Hall in 2017, followed up by a second event in 2018. Forde + Nicol are proud to have been the design partner for this important project. We were responsible for the Ball’s branding, printed program, promotional posters and web presence.
