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 Fall

The Fall was a publication commissioned by artist Patrick Pound for the NGV Art Book Fair. The FallĀ is a collection of photographs of things the artist has found to hold a single idea, the idea of falling.

Pound gave us access to his image collection for this work and together we devised a format and sequence to produce the book. Large format pages combined with a smaller cover reproduction of a comic romance book. The book was bound using a singer sewn red stitch in an edition of 100.

The book received a distinction award in the 2015 AGDA Awards and was also exhibited as a winner in the 2015 Mohawk Paper Show.
