Few people are lucky enough to be in at the start of an entirely new visual medium, especially one as exciting as embossed Holography. David Pizzanelli has seen the medium grow in to a global business. At Hollusions Ltd, his research into surface-relief holograms led to the production of the first embossed rainbow hologram in Europe. At SEE 3 (Holograms) Ltd, David made surface-relief hologram masters for a range of clients. At Light Impressions Ltd, David worked on projects for national ID cards (Pakistan), banknotes (Vietnam), tax seals (Hungary) and novel optical technology for the Italian Mint. David has a PhD in Holography from the Royal College of Art, and served as an elected Board Member, Chairman and Director of the International Hologram Manufacturers Association. David has worked as an expert witness in banknote litigations and as a consultant in the field Holography, anti-counterfeiting and authentication, including Adversarial Analysis for optical banknote features. In 2014 David was awarded the IHMA’s Brian Monaghan Lifetime Award for Business Innovation.
