Gestalt – What is it?

My Illustrator 2 class had a lively philosophical discussion about Gestalt Theory this week and I wanted to share some resources.

Comes from Gestalt Psychology

Summarized extremely simply: “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts”

Gestalt principles can be applied to design, human behavior/psychology and mindfulness/awareness.

5 principles: similarity, continuation, closure, proximity, figure/ground, and symmetry & order

Great video
