    Cheers! Happy to see it's helping.

    You've made a good point. It's not a magic bullet. It definitely needs some guidance. In particular, when dealing with negative spaces. They tend to distort the total perceptual weight. Luckily, most of the time these shapes are present in the design and can be temporarily switched off when aligning. That will remove some stress from you and provide mathematical grounds.

    Here I've taken some iOS 9 icons from the iOS 9 GUI (iPhone) for demonstration.
