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.

Yal Yal Estate

Yal Yal Estate is a wine producer on the Mornington Peninsula that we have worked with on branding and wine labelling since their launch in 2010. Yal Yal Estate is a family run business and employs a minimalist approach to their wine production. When asked to translate and apply their branding to a website and online shop we also took a restrained approach with our design.

As with all the websites we develop, we carefully considered our users platform and created a responsive site that looks great at all screen sizes. Intuitive navigation has made shopping on the site as simple as possible, reflected in the increased sales the business has experienced. A companion EDM template and campaign have helped drive traffic to the website and wine club membership numbers have increased dramatically since the launch.
