Chapter 11. Making an Order Form > Planning the Project

Planning the Project

The order form you will create in this project can be delivered in a variety of ways. Working with forms is a common technical layout challenge, which is often avoided because of a limited understanding of typographical controls. In this chapter we explore a variety of ways to create the lines, grids, and text positions necessary for the precision of forms.

Forms are here to stay, and more and more marketing efforts are geared toward capturing as much information about customers as possible. We encounter forms everywhere, when joining organizations, participating with schools, providing information online, applying for credit cards, and so on. Forms play a key role in employees’ interactions with their human resources department as well, and analog or paper forms are commonly converted to electronic forms that can be downloaded, filled out, and mailed back or simply filled out dynamically on a company’s FTP site.
