Best Practices in Web Form Design

I'm humming and hahing over some form designs at the moment. These days you have so many options, especially when you are getting smart with ajax and scriptaculous tricks.

Having options is always a double-edged sword. Yes, they allow you to do amazing things. But they provide a great recipe for procrastination.

.. just the situation where some thoughtful, concise guidance on leading practices from someone who knows their stuff can be a goldmine.

Thankfully I stumbled upon this great presentation on web form design by Luke Wroblewksi. It's a classic, and now I see he has a book out on the topic which instantly went on my "must read" list.

Forms Processing applications let you recognize forms filled in by hand in order to automate data entry tasks. Handprint recognition has come a long way in the past few years. Cost and complexity have gone down while accuracy gets increasingly higher. This has finally made this technology available to small and mid-sized businesses.

A new design might be the correct answer and the right strategy for the success of your online business. A quality design can help your website seek the required attention from the customers. At the same time, it also gives you the confidence that you are projecting your products/services in the best possible way. http://www.infysolutions.com/resources/resources.html

Interesting and thanks for the post!! Good blog and update more!! By the way, have you heard of MiNeeds.com? It really simplifies finding affordable web designers. I used it to find them for my business websites. Essentially, after I described what I needed on this site, I received several competitive bids from local web designers. I liked the fact that I didn’t have to call around and negotiate with each, and that they actually came to me.

The biggest surprise for me was that it's only selling through Apple and authorised resellers. None of the local telcos will be offering it directly at this point.
