Miraphora Mina graduated in Theatre Design from London’s Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in 1987. Eduardo Lima graduated in 1997 in Visual Communications from Pontifical Universidad e Catolica, Rio de Janeiro.
They joined forces in 2002 to take up the artistic challenge that was proposed to them: to imagine and create the graphic universe of the Harry Potter film series. Since then they have shared a common artistic passion and have developed the entire graphic style of all the Harry Potter movies. This fruitful and successful collaboration led them to form their own design studio, MinaLima, specialising in graphic design and illustration.
Since finishing their work on the Harry Potter films and founding their studio in 2009, Miraphora and Eduardo have continued their involvement in the Harry Potter franchise through numerous design commissions. They spent two years designing all the graphic elements for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando Resort, as well as designing award-winning publications for the brand.
In 2015, MinaLima entered a new chapter of the Wizarding World, designing the graphic props for the Fantastic Beasts film series.
Their latest venture is the launch of two dedicated MinaLima galleries and stores, showcasing their entire treasury of graphic works. House of MinaLima in London and Osaka seek to create an experiential space, celebrating the idiosyncrasies of their work for the Wizarding World franchise as well as their own creations.
