Gestalt, to my best understanding, is the idea of conveying ideas through showing rather than telling. Gestalt uses unconventional symbols and objects to convey a message.
Terisita Hernandez hits on a couple points that reminded me of graphic arts and specifically my experience with Figma. One thing in particular that I related was when she said "Not every project will survive." Hernandez reminds us that not everything we make is our best work and that abandonment of an idea is not quitting. She asserts that if we catch our mistakes early, we can save time. Speaking of time, Hernandes also reminded her audience that art is time consuming. She says to brace for the commitment that creativity requires by putting yourself in a good situation to have the most success.
