Last year, I wrote a post about how to create a form using the new Google Forms interface. In today’s episode, we’re going to look at how to change the design in Google Forms, Google’s free alternative to Surveymonkey that integrates with Google Sheets and Google Drive.
If you use Google Forms to to gather information from customers or survey a group of people, you can really improve the look of the form by changing its design. There are all kinds of reasons for changing the design:
- The default Google Forms design looks too plain.
- You want to apply your own design sensibilities to the form
- You have branding elements such as logos or special photos you want to incorporate into the design.
- You want the form to better match the fonts, colors, and other elements of your product or website.
- You think your audience will respond more enthusiastically to a different design.
This last point is not just being considerate of your audience’s aesthetic sensibilities. If different design elements convince more people to start the form and finish it, that means you will get more (and perhaps better) data.
