  6. 6. GESTALT PSYCHOLOGY • The gestalt laws are three (3) useful tools for good design. – The Law of Proximity • The texts and images placed close to each other are perceived as belonging together. – The Law of Similarity • Visual arrangements that demonstrate similarity are perceived as belonging together. – The Law of Closedness • Text and images enclosed together within a frame, for example, belong together.
  7. 7. 4 DESIGN PRINCIPLES • Contrast – which creates a dynamic and exciting form and a way into visual arrangements. • Balance – prevents the design capsizing. • Alignment and Grids – place columns and images according to a uniform templates. • Rhythm – takes the receiver fowards by switching between stronger and weaker elements.
  8. 8. VISUAL FOWARD MOMENTUM • Telling an appealing story demands foward momentum, which draws the receiver further into the article, the advert or the website. • The reinforcement schedules, derived from the psychology of learning, are important instruments and should be varied and suprising.
