Thoughts on Forms

Many of these forms are designed to match the themes they’re used within, which is what sets them apart from so many other standard and bland forms. Many of them use additional enhancements for instant validation, AJAX submission, field selection highlighting, etc., which shows that the designer and/or developer took the time to pay attention to all the details of the site.

There’s tons of great forms out there so if you have any favorites, please share a link to it with us via comment. Thanks!

  • Every one of these is a simple contact form. Do you have any examples of other forms? Validation examples, successfully completed screens, organization of more complex groups of elements? Anything beyond two to three text boxes?
