Using CSS to improve the look of your current Gravity Forms designs.

Effective interface design employs visual hierarchy to guide users’ attention to the most important elements. By highlighting key actions, such as adding form fields or configuring settings, users can easily understand the sequence of steps required to create or edit a form.

Clear labels, tooltips, and contextual help ensure that users know what each element does and how it contributes to the form’s functionality.

Remember that while CSS can enhance the visual appeal and usability of your Gravity Forms, it’s important to strike a balance between customization and usability. Ensure that your forms remain user-friendly and easy to understand, even with the added styling.
