    Hey, I'd like to create registration form for my soccer practice team. Since mostly kids and their parents fill it out, I want it to be visually perfect and easy to fill out. I checked out google forms but couldn't find any details on design. I need your help with this please. Also, you can also tell me if I can do any custom design on jotform. Thanks in advance.

    Google Forms only allows you to change theme and background color in addition to font style. Jotform, on the other hand, has more sophisticated features when it comes to design. You can create organized and visually stunning forms by using Jotform's form designer. Moreover, you can always add CSS codes to your form if you want further customization. If you'd like to use one of our templates, you can always find one in related categories. Here is one for you on soccer camp registration:

    Jotform has thousands of ready-to-use templated for specific categories. Please visit summer camp category for more templates:

    Jotform provides many design customization options. You can change your background and font color, button style, spacing, and theme. Advanced form designer allow you to change the design of every form element, even a small radio button. You can make more advanced design changes using CSS codes as well. The codes will help you to adjust particular elements of your form such as changing subheader color and removing error messages. 

    That's not all. Jotform Cards enables to share one question per page, which would be helpful for those who fill out forms on mobile devices. With all these features on design customization, there is no doubt that Jotform is the best Google Forms alternative. If you'd like to make design changes in your form, please follow these steps;
