MinaLima, the design studio behind all the Harry Potter graphic art, has opened a huge four-storey immersive exhibition of its work in Soho, London.
The House of MinaLima displays all the studio’s print material for the Harry Potter films, including The Daily Prophet newspaper, the Marauder’s Map, book covers, posters, signage and packaging for various wizard ephemera.
Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima designed all the artwork on the film set at Leavesden Film Studios between 2001 – 2010. Designs for the Proclamation posters and The Daily Prophet newspaper referenced Nazi and Soviet era propaganda material. The studio has also designed publications for the franchise, and the street and store graphics for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter — Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando Resort.
Around 50 props are on loan from Warner Bros. Studio Tour in London, and some limited edition prints have been produced for sale. The exhibition also features MinaLima’s other work, such as its collective noun series — for example A Peloton of Cyclists and An Army of Ants— and illustrations from recent publications of Peter Pan and The Jungle Book.
House of MinaLima is open until 4 February 2017 at 26 Greek Street, London.
