This is a great example of a quick “drop me a note” type contact form that integrates well into the overall theme of the site.
The added handwriting elements and butterfly add a nice touch to spice up a simplistic form design. Small details such as these set apart good from great design.

Todd Adams going the extra mile by customizing his form elements to match his theme.

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!
