Potter Design Duo MinaLima Discusses Book Covers
The creators of most of the franchise's art, Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima, met in 2001. Mina was already part of the film design scene in London, specializing in graphic and prop design, and worked on the original Potter film. Lima was new to the UK, having worked for several postgraduate years as a film editor in his native Brazil. Both were hired to design for "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," second in the Potter series, and have been collaborating ever since. Most recently they designed the covers for "Pottermore Presents," three eBooks offering readers more of J.K. Rowling's writing about Hogwarts and the wizards who teach there.
