Abstract

In interactive media environments, while an interaction occurs between users and objects, a communication also occurs. As a result, interaction acts as a communication and enters into a relationship related to interaction in design in the area where communication exists. Innovations in computer and communication technologies have caused the concept of interaction to expand and spread to the center of life, and this has enabled this concept to be discussed under different headings. Interactive infographics, one of these titles, are environments that provide the user with the opportunity to present more information and at the same time provide them with control over the data, aiming to quickly understand the information presented to them. The design process is important in constructing the interaction in a healthy and understandable way, in terms of revealing a functional study according to the perception level of the target audience. Along with this process, the gestalt principles used in the creation of the design play an important role in creating an effective and efficient design environment where users can associate different elements in the design environment with each other. In this study, first of all, gestalt perception principles and design development process in interaction design were emphasized and the interactive infographic applications discussed were evaluated in the light of these principles and interaction design process. It is aimed to reveal the importance of the design development process and gestalt perception principles in interactive infographics, at this point, it is thought that the study will contribute to the literature.
