Google Forms is out of the easiest form-builder tools you could use to create a quick form or survey. While you can bring some design customization to the form, you might want to bring even more personalization to it. 

In this article, we are going to show you how you can set up a header image in Google Forms so you could make your form more attractive and suggestive to your respondents.

On the other hand, we are going to explore 123FormBuilder and how using our form-builder can help you create a more complex form from a design perspective.

Assuming you have already created your Google form, now you’d like to bring a personal touch to it. 

In order to access the design area in Google Forms, you have to click the palette in the top right corner of the page. 

In the Theme section, you can modify the text style, the color and the background color. Besides that, you have an option called Header.

By clicking on the Choose image button, a modal opens up from where you can choose between a lot of photos or even upload your own. Let’s take them one by one. 

The first one is Themes – here you can browse between different categories in order to find the header image that best fits the needs of your form. One note regarding themes – when choosing a header image, an overall theme applies to the form. This means that the colors of the form will automatically change once you select a header image, as they come with a theme attached.

The second option is Upload. Here you can browse for an image that is on your device. Once the photo is uploaded, you have the option of cropping and fitting the image into a predefined container so that it would look good on your form.
