Appropriation

… borrowing of a style, typically used elsewhere, as the basis for a design. This may be done for purely aesthetic reasons as a method to present information in a certain way, but often it is done to borrow characteristics that are associated with the appropriate source. Establishing such a connection may add credibility to the design or cause it to be viewed in a certain way.
