Gestalt Psychology in Design


Without clear boundary we can still make out the shape


Our mind tend to group the left stack as one and right as three different groups


We group all squares based on color regardless of their placement


Our eyes follow the first curve with dotted line and another with red line even though they have different color and type


If black is background- image has two faces. If white is background- image is vase


Although this image has no clear shape, our brain simplifies it and interpret it as combination of triangle, rectangle and circle
