Here are some hot tips for making your holographic button designs stand out and looking their very best!

1. Keep your designs simple.

2. The fewer colours, the better.

3. Make sure the shapes in your design aren't too small.

4. Outline your image with a dark colour for optimal image definition. The picture above shows the same designs with two different treatments. The design on the left has a transparent outline which makes it tricky to see the mermaid. The design on the right has a black outline, which makes the mermaid stand out and look extra awesome!
