Watch Luke tackle one of the many form design challenges addressed in this seminar:
Web forms are the linchpin to a user's engagement with your design. All too often these forms, the last and most important step in a user's journey, are poorly thought out or crafted. It's common to struggle with forms—knowing exactly how to design it so the user doesn't abandon it.
How long should your form be? Is it best to break a form into multiple steps? What are the considerations for a two-column design? How do you handle international addresses? These are just a few examples of what countless others have wrestled with in their form design. You are not alone.

It's a struggle to find good forms. Sometimes it's hard to tell when you make mistakes with your own. Are you creating a web form that encourages abandonment or captures bad data?

You'll understand where to place action buttons, in what order, and when to combine them with links. In capturing your users' information, you'll learn how to create field that allow them to choose how to populate it, and in a form that doesn't ask for unrecognizable pieces of data.
