If you were ever wondering where you can find the tools to create a beautiful typeform design, you’ll find the answers to your questions here.
How can I add a beautiful design to my typeform?
You can do this by either applying a theme to your typeform with a background image, or by adding a question layout.
Alternatively, you can also add images to your answer options in a Picture Choice question.
What’s the difference between a background image and a layout?
The key difference between a background image and a layout is that the background image applies to the whole typeform, while a layout only applies to the given question.
How can I add a background image?
To add a background image, go to the Design panel and select a theme there. You can then add a new theme or edit an existing one by clicking the three dots.
To add or remove a background image, click Add or Remove next to Background image. All the design changes you make here will apply to the whole typeform.
You can read more about adding a background image in the Design panel here.
How can I add a layout?
To add a layout, go to the Editor panel, and click Layout in the top right corner of the selected question. You can then add images and GIFs under the Media section. This question layout will only apply to the given question.

The layout image under Media is the “Welcome onboard” sign with a transparent background that only appears on the Welcome Screen:
