Apply a theme to your typeform

Your Typeform account includes a tool to apply themes from Typeform’s public themes library to your typeforms. You can also design and manage your own repository of custom themes.

A theme consists of:

  • A color palette with the color values of the four main elements of a typeform: questions, buttons, answers and background.
  • A font for the text.
  • A background image (optional), including brightness and scaling configuration.

Public themes

To apply a public theme to a typeform, click on the Design droplet icon. You’ll see a list of themes under the Public themes tab and can preview the font and color scheme of each. Click on a theme to apply it. You’ll see a preview of the theme in the Live preview window.

Editing, duplicating and deleting your themes

Clicking the three dots icon next to any theme gives you these options: 

Rename – click this to change the name of your theme

Customize – click this to edit your theme.

Duplicate – If you’d like to edit a theme without changing any other typeforms that use it, you can duplicate it. This will let you edit the theme safely. As it will be saved in My Themes, you can still apply this duplicated theme to any other typeforms you want.

Delete – This lets you delete a theme from your collection. We’ll warn you about how many typeforms use the theme before it’s gone.

If you delete a theme, affected typeforms will no longer have that theme applied to them.
