Following on from our look at fantastic login pages comes a look at more comprehensive form design such as contact forms, order forms, sign up forms and comment forms. Below are just some of the best examples on the web.
WPCoder uses a high quality image of a clipboard for their order form.

Paramore Redd have a nicely styled, clean contact form.
Graphik uses a big friendly header on their contact form.
Kontain clearly defines form fields by using bounding boxes and colour.

News Pond gets users to focus on their sign-up form with the use of a background glow.

As you can see, forms don’t have to be boring, there are a number of different ways that you can make forms more interesting and more usable, increasing the chance that users will sign up to a service or send feedback.
Feel free to share your own form designs and any others that you have seen out there in the comments.
