Design Better Forms Like Your Life Depends On It

Let’s face it: designing forms isn’t the most interesting or sexy design job out there but they are incredibly important. Companies are investing tons of money into researching what compels users to finish and submit forms. The graphic design principles that we learned early on in our careers directly translate to form design. If the goal of a graphic designer to communicate their message effectively then form designs serve as a true litmus test for a designer’s skill, execution, and understanding of fundamental design principals. One of the most common mistakes a designer can make is not utilizing drop down menus correctly.
