Thanks again to the UX people in Melbourne and Sydney who came to our UX Australia workshops on “Designing forms that work”, and to Donna Spencer for organising them.
I started us off with an introduction to thinking about forms.
Jessica Enders talked about ‘Visual Design for Forms’. She reminded us about gestalt, and how thinking about six of the gestalt principles can help us to improve our forms.
Gerry Gaffney took us through a case study: the juror system for New South Wales. It was good to be reminded that successful forms work because they are designed to meet the needs of users, and are part of a complete eco-system.
Shannon King also did a sketchnote of Gerry’s talk.
