Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima started working together in 2001 to imagine and create the entire graphic universe of all the Harry Potter™ movies.
Motivated by a shared artistic vision, in 2009 they founded a graphic design studio with the objective of creating distinctive and unconventional design and illustration for the entertainment and publishing industries. They named it MinaLima. As Studio MinaLima, they designed graphic props for films such as Sweeney Todd, The Golden Compass and The Imitation Game; created their Collective Nouns art print collection; and crafted MinaLima Classics, the bestselling series of illustrated books. Miraphora and Eduardo have continued their involvement in the Wizarding World franchise with numerous design commissions, from theme park design to marketing and publishing. A new chapter of imagining this world came in 2015, designing the graphic props for the Fantastic Beasts™ film series. In 2016 House of MinaLima opened its doors in London: an immersive gallery and shop showcasing their treasury of graphic works. Since then, the experiential narrative space has also welcomed visitors in Osaka, New York and Paju, globally celebrating the idiosyncrasies of Miraphora and Eduardo’s ideas and their passion for storytelling through Design.
