1. Figure-Ground.
2. Similarity. The second principle states that we tend to group things that are similar together. When our mind makes these groups, we make similar assumptions about the group and all of the objects in it.
3. Proximity. I mentioned just a moment ago that the distance between each element plays into how we perceive the overall image. This is the principle of proximity.
4. Common Region.
5. Common Fate. Don’t confuse Common Region with Common Fate. This principle takes a slightly different approach to how we categorize elements. Common Fate only applies to moving elements.
6. Continuity. The above principles speak to the idea that our mind categorizes elements to make things easier for ourselves. It’s easier to recognize two groups of dots than it is to recognize 72 individual dots.
7. Closure. The principle of closure is key to understanding Gestalt theory. Gestalt theory overall states that the mind seeks to perceive a whole image, rather than the sum of its parts.
8. Symmetry. Another way that the mind groups elements together is by looking for symmetry. If the mind sees two symmetrical items, it will group them together as one image.

Laws of Proximity, Uniform Connectedness, and Continuation

1. Logo designs. The logos of Amazon, Proquest, USA Network, and Coca Cola follow the continuation principle of Gestalt. In the logo of Amazon, there is an arrow starting from A and ending at Z which depicts that Amazon has everything from A to Z. Similarly, in the logo of the famous soft-drink brand, Coca Cola, our eyes follow the “C” from Coca to Cola, beginning from the “C” in the word Cola through L and A. These types of visual aids help our eyes to follow an upcoming object.
2. Google Maps. Google Maps have become a necessity for an individual who has shifted to a new city or for the ones who like to travel. Google Maps also follow the rule of continuity.
3. Incomplete Logos and Designs. We can find some unfilled gap in logos of WWF or EA sports. For instance, in the logo of WWF, there is an image of a panda, and it has some missing spaces on its back and head.
4. Advertisements. The above image is an advertisement for lenses. In this ad, the advertiser has tried to construct a smiley with the help of objects and sentences, and we perceive the smiley as a happy face as the advertisers would have apprehended.
5. Logo Designs. In the logos of NBC, Panda Security Touts, and Sun Microsystems, objects and patterns have similar visual characteristics, though they are not identical in colour, shape, or size.
6. Dots/Puzzle Buzz. In the above image, dots on the left appear to be the part of one group, whereas the ones on the right seem to be in three different groups.
7. IBM Logo. When we look at the IBM logo, we see three letters composed of short horizontal lines stacked above each other instead of the eight horizontal lines interspersed with uniform gaps.
8. Olympic Logo. The Olympic logo has five circles. We tend to see this logo straightforwardly. The logo is perceived to consist of five circles which are juxtaposing each other.
9. Multistability Images. The above logo for “Hope for African Children Initiative” simultaneously depicts the map of Africa and the waning silhouettes of an adult and a child.
10. Face and Vases Illustration. In this image, we see faces and vases which depend on our way of perception. If we see the white as the figure, then we perceive men and vice-versa.

In example (A) you see horizontal rows of circles, but if you changed the picture so none of the circles are filled in you might see vertical rows of circles, or both.

2. similarity. The Law of Similarity states that similar objects are perceived as being grouped together. The picture on the left displays a group of squares and circles.
3. Proximity. This law explains that objects that are in close proximity appear to be grouped together. The maroon dots are perceived as paw print because of their close proximity (Goldstein 106).
4. Common Fate. The Law of Common Fate informs us that objects moving in the same direction appear to be. grouped together. In the case that these dots were mobile, those moving forward would be.
5. Meaningfullness or Similarity. "According to the law of familiarity things that form patterns that are familiar or meaningful are likely to. become grouped together (Goldstein 107)."
6. Good continuation. The Law of Good Continuation is illustrated in the figure on the left. It displays that when connected points. result in smoothly curving lines, the lines tend to be viewed in a way that follows the smoothest path.

Law of Common Fate is the gestalt grouping law that states that elements that are moving together tend to be perceived as a unified group. Think of watching a flock of geese moving across a fall sky. The geese are all flying the same direction at approximately the same speed. Therefore, we see them as a gestalt group, or in this case, a flock. We might see a second …

The Gestalt psychologists, especially Max Wertheimer, developed a number of “laws” that predict how perceptual grouping occurs under a variety of circumstances (Wertheimer, 1923/1938). Technically, in sciences, laws are predictions that are true. In reality, these laws are better classified as principles, which are true most of the time. However, the term law has stuck with …

Gestalt Law of Similarity. When we use different colors to identify series in a chart we are applying the law of similarity: we group together things that share the same color, shape, direction. Let’s redraw the scatter plot above: I didn’t tell you, but each data point represents a county, and color encodes the state.

This particular principle of the Gestalt approach states that if a figure has a gap in its form, people still perceive it as a complete and closed figure (Foley & Matlin, 2010). This law is often used in graphic design, which can be seen in the following example (“Closure,” 2017). As it can be observed in this image, the shape of the panda

Just like the other Gestalt psychology techniques, the Law of Pragnanz plays off of the laziness of the mind. In particular, this principle plays off of the familiar symbols we’ve been developing since childhood; cars, animals, numbers, letters, faces…things like that. The human mind loves to simplify, and quickly make sense of objects.
