Website forms are an essential component in any website, landing page, or e-commerce store. Whether the form’s objective is to contact the website owner, complete a questionnaire, log in to an account, buy an item, sign up for a new account, book a reservation, or sign up for a free trial — every granular detail of the web form’s design and layout is crucial. 

You may have asked yourself these questions in the past: Which design layout will work best for my form? What will engage users most? How can I implement my design motifs and brand identity? Should I place the form inside a website popup, or would a footer form work better? 

Between the long list of website form-types and their use-cases, identifying what to consider when in your form design can be intimidating, to say the least. Rest assured, creating a high-performing website form will soon be a stress-free, challenging, yet rewarding web creation experience.

To empower our web design strategy and workflows, we’ve compiled a list of 15 examples that will show you what the very best forms are made of.

15 Unforgettable Examples of Web Form Design

We’re about to embark on a jam-packed journey through website forms of all shapes, colors, layouts and sizes. Prepare to be amazed by this list of 15 website forms whose design and structure will revolutionize your web creation skills.

Contact Us Forms

When you’re determined to see every user click “Submit” before exiting your site, your contact form can make or break this goal. Basic decisions like if and when to add animations or progress indicators, how large or bold your headings should be, how wide to make your form fields — all of these factors contribute to each form’s completion rate and impact your website’s user experience.

#1 Brandingo

interactive website form example

Brandingo is an Armenian design agency and school that we chose back in January 2021 for our Top 10 Elementor sites of the month showcase. The Brandingo website was built to “showcase the agency’s talent and knowledge in design, illustration, UI/UX and branding to potential clients and students.” 

What has always stood out to us in Brandingo’s site is its use of so many motion and interactive effects that all fit together like a glove. They’ve clearly mastered the art of finding a balance engaging interactive features that aren’t too much for the human eye to handle. 

Our Favorite Things:

  • The many uses of Lottie animations appearing as you scroll down the page.
  • The text path that circles around the form’s circular background once you reach the end.

#2 The Space Cube

contact form example elementor

The Space Cube is a desktop organization product created by Carol Havener from Sydney, Australia. Built with both homeowners and offices in mind, the product addresses the pain point of organizing limited spaces (such as an office desk, a study, a family living room, etc.) 

Carol built her product website with Elementor, using the WooCommerce builder to serve her e-commerce site needs. Given its wide target audience, the product’s site uses a white and black color scheme wisely. The motifs account for the product’s modern, slim and minimalist design scheme, and the contact page and its form achieve the same goal. 

Our Favorite Things: 

  • The elegant font pairing combines calligraphy, handwritten style with the sans-serif font “Bodoni”. 

The sophisticated background image placed behind the form’s solid, square white background. This really brings the product’s use-case to life, subtly reminding the user of how nice it feels to sit at a desk that’s clean, non-cluttered, and welcomes tranquility.

#3 Metropolis Moving

elementor progress indicator form example

Metropolis Moving is a New York City moving company based in Brooklyn, NY. Their website color scheme and design use NYC-themed colors like taxi cab yellow, navy, and grey to visualize the essence of their tailor-made service for moving within the bustling “Big Apple”. The site’s Contact Us form is a brief, multi-step form for the prospective customer to fill out and receive a price quote. 

Our Favorite Things:

  • The demarcated map route and location points capture the unpredictable experience (path) between moving from one address to another.
  • The form fields are designed with all the web form rules of thumb: 

Questionnaire Forms

Asking your audience questions about their interests, preferences, goals, etc. is a fine way to establish a dialogue. But what are the best ways to present your questions? Should you create an informal atmosphere? Which format will work best for your audience? All of these considerations are of equal importance, yet the options for how to tackle each one are incredibly varied.

#4 Spotify Pets

spotify questionnaire form

Spotify Pets is a playlist feature within the Spotify digital music, podcast, and video service. This uniquely quirky addition to Spotify uses the platform’s algorithm to create playlists for the pet and pet owner to listen to — based on the user’s listening habits and pet’s attributes.
