Formulate has closed

After a fabulous decade, it's time for me to move on to other adventures. As you might imagine, I am both sad and excited.

I am so pleased that I have had the opportunity to help organisations collect data via more efficient, effective and user-friendly forms. This battle is nowhere near over, so I encourage you all to keep fighting the good fight. If you need tips, tricks and advice, I can – of course – strongly recommend my book Designing UX: Forms which you can buy from your favourite supplier including Amazon, Book Depository, Booktopia and Google Play.

I will leave the Formulate About section (which includes links to my articles elsewhere on the web) and Blog up on the site for the time being. From 10 April 2018, the Formulate twitter account will be inactive but you can access all past tweets on Pinboard.

If you need specialist form design help, may I recommend:

The end credits

First and foremost, a big thank you to my clients, who recognised the huge savings, improved organisation reputation and much better outcomes that well-designed forms deliver.

A heartfelt thank you also goes to all of my peers, partners, publishers, friends and family, who have supported me and the Formulate vision over the past decade. It would not have been a success without your open-mindedness, generosity and talent.

Best of luck to each and everyone of you.
