Google Forms is one of the best ways to create forms for free, thanks to its wide range of form fields and deep integration with Google Sheets. However, it has never been the most customizable form builder, with only options to customize the colored or photo labeled header.

This changes with the new Google Forms theme area. Click the color palette icon to customize your form, and you can choose from the Google photo set or upload your own photos as before. You can also choose from a dozen pre-selected colors or add your own custom theme colors. You can also choose from four lighter background colors that are automatically recommended by Google Forms.

When designing a shape, it’s important to customize the look and feel of the shape to match its purpose. Sometimes you want a formal design, and sometimes you want a more imaginative design with italicized fonts or a custom header image. When it comes to themes, you can choose your own images and colors, or choose the simpler option: Choose from preselected configurations. Either way, you’ll get a nice form in just a few clicks.
