New MinaLima print celebrates Harry’s first Quidditch match

MinaLima, the graphic design duo behind all of the graphics in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films, have revealed the fifth in their series of magical ‘Potter’ moment graphic prints. Titled ‘Another 10 Points to Gryffindor’, the numbered print celebrates Harry’s first Quidditch match and is available in both a standard and premium finish over at MinaLima’s website.

The first four prints in the series commemorate iconic moments from Harry’s first story and are also available from MinaLima’s website.

MinaLima release ‘Harry Potter’ wrapping paper collection

Graphic design magicians Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima (MinaLima), the designers responsible for all of the glittering graphics in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films, have released an enchanting collection of Wizarding World themed Christmas wrapping paper.

Five of the seven designs (above) — the Marauder’s Map, Black family tree, Quidditch, Hogwarts Library books and Daily Prophet newspapers — were unveiled in a recent wallpaper collection. Two new designs, Santa’s Sleigh and Christmas Elf, were first seen onscreen in Order of the Phoenix (2007) when Arthur Weasley and family exchange Christmas gifts at Grimmauld Place following Mr. Weasley’s snake attack.

Each design includes two sheets of single-sided folded gift wrap measuring 50 x 70cm and costs £5.95. All of the amazing designs can be pre-ordered over at MinaLima’s website or at their House of MinaLima London gallery at 26 Greek Street from Monday 4 November.

MinaLima’s fourth ‘Harry Potter’ print celebrates the Boy Wizard’s sorting

Harry Potter graphic design duo Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima (MinaLima) today announced the fourth print in their limited edition ‘Potter’ magical moments graphic series. Titled ‘Better be…Gryffindor!’, the new print celebrates Harry’s Hogwarts Sorting Hat experience.

The numbered print is available in both a standard and premium finish over at MinaLima’s website. The first three prints in the series celebrate Harry’s discovery of his magical abilities, as well as his journeys to both Diagon Alley and Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

MinaLima are the talented team behind all aspects of graphic design in the Wizarding World (that’s both Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts). Earlier this year I had the pleasure of profiling the artists for a behind-the-scenes look at their Harry Potter craft.

MinaLima unveil spectacular ‘Harry Potter’ wallpaper collection

Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima — known collectively as design duo MinaLima — today unveiled five gorgeous Harry Potter wallpaper prints based on their graphic design work for the eight ‘Potter’ films. The five designs include the enchanted Marauder’s Map, the Black family tree, collages of both the Daily Prophet newspapers and Hogwarts library books, and a cute and playful Quidditch motif.

Each of the wallpaper designs is available through MinaLima’s website, or at their physical ‘House of MinaLima’ galleries in both London and Osaka. MinaLima designed all the graphics for the eight Harry Potter films, as well as — to date — two Fantastic Beasts movies. Earlier this year, we profiled the design duo in an in-depth Harry Potter graphic design retrospective.
