    Hey guys,

    you were so kind and provided such a valuable feedback on my previous shot so I thought I'd share some more Portfolio bits with you. This is the contact form to fill with project details and stuff.

    ✔ To make things more strightforward I thought it would be cool to send wireframes, NDA, whatever docs the client wants to share.

    ✔ The top one represents the project type, you can check as mane as you like. Apparently Kanye wants an iPad app so its selected. I hate boring standard checkboxes :)

    ✔ Calendar is supposed to show my availablitity for the upcoming months.

    ✔ For fun - the font tool to play around with white typing your message. And yes, I was actually going to code that!

    Full view

    Let me know what you guys think. Your opinions are important in making the decision on whether to go with this design.

    This is a really cool concept @Julia Khusainova. I'm interested to see how you would break down the different options for mobile, if this is responsive. This actually makes me want to fill the form out.

    Maybe it's just me, but does the text alignment really need to be there in the popup? It seems unnecessary compared to the others, but perhaps you have a reason for wanting it :)

    What do you think about widening the types of project boxes so that they all span the entire width instead of having the gap on the right?

    Again, really great the ideas you have here.

    Great job! Not enough separation between section titles (Availability, Select a project...) and input labels. That makes it harder for a user to build a clear mental model of the form.

    @Alex Thank you very much for your comment and such a valuable feedback. I think you're right on alignment, we don't really crazy about it for emails, right.

    I'll try the suggested way of widening the types of the project.

    Glad you actually feel you would want to fill in the form! :)

    @Stanley I'm very happy to see that you dig it. Thank you for the appreciation. Maybe it wasn't a bad idea to design something like that after all!

    Best wishes to you!

    Its nice. But. Its good for a portfolio site? Isnt that too much complicated?

    I always enjoy people who offer services in lets say 3 pre-made patterns: Budget A, Budget B, Budget C. And then you can tweak it a bit after you talk to client.

    Your version is really nice anyway :) I just think you may skip a lot of issues and time killing just saying "this is me, this is my price" :)

    @Frantisek Overall I agree.

    I did some digging around the subj and asked a few clients of mine which type of discussion would they like. Opinions were very different as always.

    Generally I find that there is no right or wrong solution. Some prefer to type (or rather copy paste) emails and don't even bother with website forms, others would like to fill in as much details as they can (and certainly I prefer to receive it) so there is no time wasting for both sides if something isn't right from the beginning.

    Also it's really hard to say what you should charge without knowing a certain amount of project details, usually it's not enough to read the 3 lines of text to provide an accurate estimation. So you can loose or you can overcharge. Sometimes it's easier to know what is the amount the client is willing to spend, associate it with project scope and see if that satisfies you :)

    I guess it depends on everyone's business experience and personal preference :)

    Thank you for your input! Love the discussions.

    Hey Julia,

    I just want to affirm this as a concept - it's more detailed than a lot of project forms, but I think that's probably a good thing. Have you come across any research about how a more detailed form affects completion rates?

    Hey @Philip! Thanks for the input. I haven't yet and would love to read it. Link?

    @Julia Khusainova You are right :) My point with offering some kind of packages was that you can easily show potential client how much you can do for a certain amount of money. Which is not the crucial key but you can easily filter people who thinks they will pay you 500 USD for website with 20 subpages, etc :)

    On other hand this is hard if you offer more services like web design, mobile, and branding etc.

    So again you are right :)
