“Harry Potter” Graphic Designers MinaLima to Hold First Orlando Meet and Greet Since 2018

Everyone knows that costumes, music, and set design go a long way toward making a fantasy or sci-fi film seem more realistic, but have you ever thought about graphic design and the role it plays? Everything that isn’t set design, costumes, or props is graphic design – and even then, sometimes all of those are based on graphics and then adapted to another medium (e.g., the Marauder’s Map).

Suppose you’re reading this and saying “Duh!” to yourself. If that’s the case, you are probably very familiar with Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, collectively known as MinaLima, a.k.a., the wildly talented and creative graphic designers of the Harry Potter films – and really, most of the wizarding world at large! They’ve been creating your magical favorites since 2001, including Ron’s Howler, Dumbledore’s will, Fred and George’s Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes packaging, Luna’s Spectrespecs, and much more.

If you’re just learning about MinaLima, you’re in luck! Climb out from that hut-on-the-rock you’ve been living under, make your way to the Universal Studios Store at Universal Orlando Resort’s CityWalk this Saturday, March 23, between 1:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., and you will get the chance to meet the fabulous duo at their very first meet and greet in Orlando since 2018.

Why exactly are they in town? They’re promoting the House of MinaLima pop-up store, which highlights the designers’ magical creations and features a variety of authentic MinaLima-designed magical keepsakes, such as prints, journals, stationery, home décor, accessories, and more. It’s open until April 29.

I am a 40-something Ravenclaw/Slytherin from Massachusetts. I've been lucky in life and can attribute a lot of that to Harry Potter. Without it, I wouldn't have at least 80% of the things I do today, including my career & closest friends. I truly despise Sirius Black.
