Box-less forms  An easy way to simplify your form design is by swapping out the full box for a simple underline or in some cases, no boxes or lines at all. The end result feels much cleaner and more pleasant to use.

Animated forms  Sometimes, a unique form design isn't so much about how it looks, but how it's presented. The age of stuffing your form at the bottom of your website is over. Now, with unique web interactions, you can animate your form in fun and interesting ways, and let people access it from anywhere on the page.

Natural-language forms  A great trend I've seen lately are forms that rely on natural 
language use. Filling out the form feels more like doing a Mad Libs than something you'd find on a contact page. Designing your form this way creates a conversational context, easing understanding without leaning on the traditional form label plus input box pattern. Not only does it feel original and well-designed, but also more natural.

Step-by-step 
(procedural) form design  Sometimes the best way to fill out a form is one step at a time. By letting people add information in easy-to-understand pieces, you're encouraging forward momentum and delivering a more focused experience than simply displaying all the fields at once. 
A simple step-by-step process is enough. But sometimes, you'll want to show how many steps it takes to complete the form, so a user doesn't feel lost in the process itself.
