Meet The Duo Behind The Graphic Design Wizardry Of "Harry Potter"

Creative news and updates from DTG Magazine

Few fans know Hogwarts inside and out like graphic artist duo Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima. The pair, who operate MinaLima Design Studio, are responsible for the graphic design of the Harry Potter universe. Over the course of a decade, they developed all of the newspapers, tabloids, letters, and book covers that populate seven of the eight films.
      For the first time, a significant portion of their work was collected for an exhibition in London. On view were copies of The Daily Prophet, the Marauder's Map, and Ministry of Magic propaganda posters. Missed the show? No worries: The original graphics are reproduced as limited-edition prints, each signed and numbered, and set on a white matte background.

The first issue of Container 'magazine'

Creative news and updates from DTG Magazine

Container, so the pitch goes, is a 'new publication about the nature and culture of objects'. More prosaically it is a polystyrene box of ten physical design objects, thematically linked around the idea of hot and cold.
      The idea of Tim Milne - printer, packaging pioneer, philosopher of analogue pleasures and co-founder of Artomatic way back in 1982 - Container #1 includes works by Accept & Proceed, James Bridle, Nik Roope & Violetta Boxill, Daniel Eatock and Malcolm Garrett.
