Today me and few of the girl took a visit to the Minalina studio to see the design of Harry Potter and Fantastic Beast.
The studio on 26 Greek Street, Soho, London opened to showcase their fifteen years of creative collaboration in graphic design. The House boasts four floors of distinctive designs on display, from their work on the Harry Potter film series to their illustrated collective nouns, and with a spectacle of visual surprises along the way.
The graphic designs from Warner Bros and Pictures of ‘ Harry Potter films by Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima are reproduced as limited edition art prints which are on sale the authentic film props are also be on display. It is also featuring graphic designs and props from the Fantastic Beast film.
Miraphora Mina used her own writing in the films and designs and licensed the own writing so she could still write today.
These two design are the two that stood out to me the design of the newspaper the daily prophet really stood out to me the way the type is spaced given the image and title a sort of path of the eye to follow. I also like the use of the letter to start of every new part of the paper.
The second print I especially liked this range because it was brightly coloured and the way the typography worked with each of different works. Letting the type speak for the poster.I think the type speaks louder than the image.
I really enjoyed my visit to Minalima even know I haven’t seen any of the Harry Potter films it was amazing to see how much detail goes in to the design of things like food packaging that are not even shown in the film.
Here are a few more images that show the props and designs that went into the building itself to show of the work.
