Whole as Other

Whole as Other is a workbook exploring Gestalt psychology, Conditional Design, and the way you think.

It provides exercises inspired by Conditional Design methodology to shed light on the subconscious processes of psychology that Gestalt explains. Ideally, it is an opportunity for you to have fun learning about Gestalt and the inner workings of your mind, all through a process of active discovery.


The typographic treatments are fully based on gestalt principles. All illustration and pattern-making were done by the designer. The book includes two paper stocks, hand-cut pages, a tie clasp, and is perfect bound.

The work was displayed at the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts senior Communication Design thesis exhibition.
