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.

Threads Across the Pacific

This 44pp publication was commissioned by RMIT iAIR to document the 2016 Australia-Mexico Indigenous Arts Residency. The recipient artist was Cilau Valadez, whose practice is embedded with the symbolism and ceremony of his people: the Wixárika tribe of Mexico.

The publication is bilingual so we treated the body text in two colours to clearly distinguish between the two languages, English and Spanish. The images were very vibrant so we allowed them plenty of space throughout the publication and often bled them at full page for maximum impact.
