There will be concerns about the length of the application form and the terms and conditions, and it is important to keep a couple of things in mind.
First, there is a difference between the actual length and the perceived length of the form. Often, when readers mention the length of the form, it has less to do with the page count, and more to do with how tedious it is to complete the form.
Second, it’s incredibly important to let the form breathe. We do this by including quite a bit of negative space.
Third, we created a form that feels shorter by making the form easy to navigate. We gave the form a logical structure, including descriptive headings that are easy to distinguish from the rest of the text. This breaks the form up into smaller more digestible pieces.
Lastly, we added a progress bar at the top of each page, which tells readers how far they are in the process, much like you would find on a website. This gives them a sense of achievement and cuts down on how long or tedious a form feels to them.
