Jina Bolton, Derek Featherstone, and Tim Connell have written "Fancy Form Design" which is now available in stores nationwide. Published by SitePoint.

Based on one of SitePoint's all-time most popular tutorials, this expanded guide shows web designers how to create visually stunning and usable web forms. Readers will learn:

  • the basics of grid design and typography
  • tips on how to use color and images effectively
  • the secret to structuring forms for maximum usability
  • how to write useful instructions, errors, and advisory text to eliminate user frustration and form abandonment
  • all about styling web forms using CSS to make them appealing
  • techniques for jazzing up web forms using JavaScript--such as creating "multiple path" forms with conditional elements, password strength indicators, and autocompletes, and capturing day and month information

"Web Forms--whether securing registration data, or capturing data to complete a purchase--are too often poorly thought-out," says Matt Mickiewicz, SitePoint Co-founder. "With this book, we're giving web designers the guidance to create forms that are attractive, usable, and accessible across a broad range of devices and platforms."

By the end of the book, readers will have the code and knowledge they need to build fancy forms of their own.

Fancy Form Design is written by notable authors Jina Bolton, Derek Featherstone, and Tim Connell, and printed in beautiful full-color. For more information, please visit the books dedicated home page:
