The Trending Hologram Design

The hologram design trend is a force to be reckoned with. In its simplest terms, a hologram is a photograph of light that’s scattered from an object and then displayed in a three-dimensional way. You’ve seen holograms in many different applications, from their use in Star Wars movies to the so-called rainbow holograms that are on the backs of your credit cards for security reasons, just to name a few.

Holograms have been around for decades, with the technology behind their roots dating all the way back to the 1920s. However, the hologram design trend is experiencing a renaissance recently, with the holographic method being applied in design across a myriad of industries.

Where to Find the Hologram Design Trend

Holograms are found in a slew of industries and applications. Below, we round up some of the more popular and impactful places where you can find and appreciate them.

  • Stationery of All Kinds

  • Holograms are a perfect fit for stationery when you think about it. Stationery is writing material (envelopes, cards, papers, notes, etc.) that people can take for granted due to its omnipresence and the mundaneness that’s associated with office supplies in general. Holograms, therefore, are the perfect element to add to your everyday piece of stationery to spruce it up and take it beyond the ordinary.

    Here are just some of the different ways you can observe the hologram design trend in stationery:

    • On greeting cards of all types
    • On various invitations
    • On specific postage stamps, some of which have been specially issued just for the holograms
    • On stickers
    • On gift-wrapping paper
    • On pens, pencils and other writing materials that have been coated with a holographic sheen

So the next time you’re in your favorite stationery or office-supply store—or perhaps just navigating through the various pins and boards on Pinterest—see if you can spot some of these holographic touches to these writing materials.
