About Us

Our own reality

Colour Holographic has been warping reality ever since it was founded in 1998, by well-known holographer, Michael Medora, and Nigel Robiette, a filmmaker with skills in animation, live-action and special effects. The company was formed after a successful project to produce a single-colour hologram of a diamond, for an exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

Today, Colour Holographic has 13 highly skilled employees across 3 separate facilities and a product range that includes super-realistic, full colour holograms (TruLife™), off-the-shelf and bespoke lighting solutions, our range of proprietry BB holographic plates, as well as a wide set of commercial and industrial solutions for a whole host of clients and industries.

Mike Medora

Head of Technology, Chairman & Co-Founder

Mike began his holography career in 1982 at a London-based company that produced monochrome silver halide holograms. Determined to create high quality full colour holograms, rather than the single colour variety being produced at the time, he worked with various holographic firms and then his own company, before founding Colour Holographic with Nigel Robiette in 1998. Mike is our chief holographer and is focussed on continually developing our technology to further blur the boundaries between the real and the unreal.

Nigel Robiette

Head of Display & Co-Founder

Nigel started working life in animation, live-action and optical effects camerawork for the film industry, also producing several short films of his own. He took up holography in 1980 and produced the first hologram LP sleeve for the band UB40 just two years later. A pioneer of using holographic foils in packaging and print, he later extended the techniques to fabrics and T-shirts. Nigel founded Colour Holographic with Michael Medora in 1998 and his focus is bringing greater realism to our holograms, using clever lighting and display techniques.
