I'm so glad I found this. I've spent more time struggling with designs for interface modals and forms since I started work at Zoto than I care to remember. Form design isn't exactly a sexy topic, but despite it's lack of sex appeal, it's one worth addressing. I'm working on forms for fotofluff at the moment, and seriously, it's a painstaking process. Forms are a big part of usability, especially with 2.0 services like Zoto, and a poorly designed form can come back to haunt you like bad Chinese takeout. Personally, I'd take a job designing a poster over designing a form any day of the week. So to all of you great form designers on the internet, I tip my hat to you.
I just wish I'd seen this slideshow a few years ago. Enjoy.
