Form themes are a great way of making your form fit within your wider branding. It is especially useful if you are embedding a form on your website, sending out forms to customers or data capturing at events. You can customize your web themes in many ways ranging from; changing your header image, a wide range of fonts and a wide colour palette to choose from.
How To Create Form Themes
If you’d like to design your own form theme, hover over the green plus button in the top left corner of the theme manager, the green plus button it will spin and give you two options. Select > Form Theme.
To give your Form Theme a name, click the 'Name' button which is located at the top left corner of the creation page.
You’ll then see a variety of fields on the right-hand side:
Background Image — This image displays as a pattern behind your form, similar to a screensaver on your computer. We recommend avoiding attention-grabbing patterns. Solid colors or your company’s logo work well here, or alternatively, leave it empty for a transparent look when embedding onto your website.
Header Image — This image displays above the top of your form and is a great place to include a banner image.

Background Color — This color will only appear if you do not have a background image set.
