77 Inspiring Blog Comment Form Designs – Good Examples

Posted in Inspiration, Web Interfaces • Posted on 90 Comments

I am continuing to do separated web-design roundups and research, this time we will look at good blog comment design examples. Maybe you can argue, how similar are such comment forms, but still I believe such huge roundups can help to see differences and compare many designs in one place.

Usually forms are pretty classic with standard fields, submit buttons – nothing more, nothing less. But still even little change of field background, border style, font, rounded corners, small icons can make huge difference. Usually my attention grabbed those comment designs with small icons added to describe each form, transparency and extended possibilities. It is always good idea to add live comment preview, smilies or some simple CSS bold, italic, underline effects to give more options to advanced comment writers. But if you want to really stand out and create something fancy, put background images in good use, where possibilities are endless as you will see in these forms. I really hope you will enjoy this article and will do your own research and considerations, what you like/dislike and why it is so. I will be more than happy if you will join to discussion in comments and pick your own favorites!

Posted in Inspiration, Web Interfaces • Posted on 31 Comments

Hello there! It’s time for little inspiration and this time I wanted to showcase something different. You may know that very popular designer slogan – “More is Less”, and yes it’s often so true – unexperienced people tend to overcrowd, use too much colors in their designs. I just love these designs – they are very light, clean and usually uses only monochrome color scheme and just one or two bright colors for links or headers.

You may also notice for such designs it’s more about grid, harmonic distribution through whole page and very silent, elegant accents. It’s not about many colorful photos,images or icons, crazy backgrounds or experimentation. Almost all of those designs are very clean, slightly increasing web page loading time, sometimes it’s crucial to have as light designs as possible, for example reddit, digg, stumbleupon social networks also consist of very few images and where is possible just color and CSS is used.
