We demonstrate that a structured light intensity pattern can be produced at the output of a multi-mode optical fiber by shaping the wavefront of the input beam with a spatial light modulator. We also find the useful property that, as in the case for free space propagation, output intensities can be easily superimposed by taking the argument of the complex superposition of corresponding phase-only holograms. An analytical expression is derived relating output intensities ratios to hologram weights in the superposition.
