Because it’s highly likely that your users will end up using some sort of form at some point or the other on your site, in this post I demonstrate that with just some small and subtle UI ideas and tweaks, you can greatly improve the usability of your form and ultimately take the first steps to improving sign-up conversions.

Instead of showing the entire six fields that this form idea requires, this minimal form interface only shows one text input at a time, thus minimizing any distractions. One drawback with using this idea is that there is no way to go back to the previous entry.
The innovative idea of this form is to turn a typical form into one that makes use of natural language to gently request the required information from the user.
This experimental full-screen form gives visitors a distraction-free form filling experience.
