Designing web forms.. logically speaking

Art and design are complicated to me because it is difficult to find the patterns and governing rules that make it look good or not so as a whole. Hence I love it when some tries to explain design from a logical point of view. Here is a nice list of articles that tries to explain the perception and the design of web forms using the Gesalt Principles.

Characteristics:
  1. Shape
  2. Size
  3. Color
Relationships:
  1. Figure/ground
  2. Proximity
  3. Similarity
