The Gestalt of Slides


I recently had the wonderful experience of sharing the Gestalt Principles of Visual Perception with my 4 year old grandson.  This might seem a pretty heady topic for a 4 year old, but we were discussing how shapes can be combined to create a picture of a house.  This is the very heart of the Gestalt Principles of Perception.

The knowledge of these principles can be a very valuable tool for designing not only slides but any form of visual communications, including photographs.

I’ve been working on a post about this topic for a while but, with the inspiration of my experience with my grandson, I decided to make a fully interactive tutorial.  Click the icon in the lower right of the tutorial below to run it in full screen mode.

I hope you enjoy learning from the tutorial as much as I had creating it and, once completed, I wish you the best as you go forward and practice the art of Pragnanz.
