Matter Of Form Appoints Nicole du Toit as Brand Design Director
Originally from South Africa, Nicole studied Fine Arts at the Pratt Institute in New York before moving on to Central Saint Martins in London. Back in New York, she worked at various agencies, both in-house and freelance, including Lloyd&Co, Publicis North America and AdAge Agency of The Year winners Yard NYC.
Throughout a remarkable career working with the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Rent The Runway, Rimowa, David Webb, Tanqueray, Salomon, GAP, Marantz, 7 For All Mankind and many more, Nicole has contributed to multiple conferences and exhibitions across art and design, proving it’s a passion that runs deeper than the usual 9-5.
Having started out as a freelance senior designer with Matter Of Form, it was immediately clear what a perfect fit Nicole was for our team and the person to lead our creative team in refining our processes and honing in on a robust branding system for our clients.
A firm believer in pushing a level of showmanship and drama in branding, Nicole’s focus is to ensure every single design, pixel and moment resonates with our clients and their audiences.
Together with our Digital Design Director Marcus Dunford, these two are already combining the best of brand and digital design to fuse old-school luxury aesthetics with contemporary conversations, keeping us and our partners on the pulse of culture and innovation to consistently differentiate from the crowd. And it doesn’t hurt that they’re by far the most stylish people in our office.
At Matter Of Form, we recognise the importance of combining brand and experience at the apex of culture to design what’s next for timeless luxury brands. We couldn’t be more delighted to welcome Nicole into our creative leadership duo, having demonstrated an innate cultural pulse in her work to rebrand iconic businesses. Her breadth of experience is vast, her portfolio imbued with cutting-edge designs that aren’t afraid to push boundaries and now we can’t wait to see what our growing creative team deliver with Nicole and Marcus at the helm.
