JotForm – Making Web Forms Fun!

Creating a website design is the fun part. You get to be creative and let your ideas flow. However, it won’t be long before you realize you need your new website to actually do something, not just look pretty.

More often than not, this leads to the inclusion of web forms. Forms – the inevitable, the unavoidable. Nobody likes creating them, and yet everybody needs them. This used to inspire a sense of dread, and then I discovered JotForm and their brand new web forms creation tool “Form Designer.” Suddenly web form creation is slick, easy, and actually quite creative.

Creating web forms in straight HTML and CSS is a tedious task. This has always been the case and is actually getting worse with all the application logic necessary in current websites. Search functionality, social integration, online applications, account administration – whenever information needs to be gathered on a website forms are the way to do it. And the better a form looks and functions, the more likely people will use it.

Recently, a client asked me to take their standard four page employment application PDF and put it on their website. My mind immediately started reeling with thoughts of input boxes, labels, radio dials, checkboxes, submission buttons, databases, and PHP generated emails with attachements. As a web designer these are not my favorite things. Then I discovered JotForm.

With the launch of their brand new Form Designer the process of migrating their downloadable PDF application form to a purely online application was a breeze. Plus, the visual options make the process fun and creative. You have full control over colors, images, background images, fonts, labels, and layout.

  • In 2004 Hang Wire Web Design agency started about the process of designing our now proprietary website content management system, Bossanova. We built the platform using PHP and MySQL. It took us over a year to build and served our clients well for many more. However, the work was never done. With each new client request we were continually adding functionality and new features. Bossanova still functions to this day on PHP 7.4. But over the years it became apparent that we were essentially trying to reinvent the wheel when an amazing wheel already existed—WordPress! It quickly became our content […]
