Forms design articles

10 Jul

Forms design is one of those niche topics that seldom seems to get much
attention. Yet it’s within the context of a form where much of the real
interaction on web sites happen. It’s where the rubber meets the road,
so to speak.

Web Application Form Design by Luke Wroblewski gets right to the nitty-gritty of label and form element layout. Mr. Wroblewski’s
recommendations will seem less subjective after looking at Label
Placement in Forms
by Matteo Penzo. In this article for UX Matters, Mr,
Penzo describes using eye movement tracking to test form element layouts
similar to the ones in Luke W’s article.

A couple of other nice articles on this often dry topic – CSS-Based
Forms: Modern Solutions
, in Smashing Magazine and  The Form Garden – A Collection of CSS Stylesheets For Web Forms

Forms need love too!
