Order forms, invoices, applications and questionnaires should be designed to focus on the essentials and so make the communication of information faster and simpler. But if a form is too complicated, confusing or obscure, it can become a barrier to communication, wasting time and money and harming perceptions of a business or brand.

Successful forms do exist – efficient, streamlined and even stylish – but they are a real challenge to create. Packed with practical advice and inspiring ideas, The Form Book brings together a comprehensive collection of great designs for both print and digital media, showcasing a range of thoughtful, elegant or witty approaches to form creation.
