MinaLima (MinaLima Design)• MinaLima is a graphic design company that was formed in 2010, after the main designers, Eduardo Lima and Miraphora Mina spent almost 10 years working together on the Harry Potter ﬁlms.• Their graphic design work for the Harry Potter ﬁlms is what they are most known for however they have also worked on Sweeney Todd (2007) and The Golden Compass (2007)• They mainly do work for the props that are used in ﬁlms and the merchandise to go with them
MinaLima• I chose this artist to look at based on their use of typography in their work, especially with the props from the Harry Potter ﬁlms.
MinaLima• The way they used type especially in the Marauder’s Map gave me the idea for my cardboard sculpture of my wallet.• I liked how they made the walls and trees in the map out of the text for example the Womping Willow on the front of the map.

“Hank... I need to make one thing clear: Nerdfighters arenot about you and me. Nerdfighters are about a made ofawesome book, made by a woman in Australia, going to amade of awesome baby in the united states. Nerdfightersare about raising money and awareness for importantcauses. Nerdfighters are about building a supportivecommunity of friends... in my pants. Nerdfighters areabout stupid beautiful projects and making each otherlaugh and think with t-shirts and pocket protectors andrants about the situation in Pakistan which sucks rightnow. In the contemporary world where things fall apartand the center can not hold you have to imagine acommunity where there is no center... A lot of life isabout doing things that don’t suck with people who don’tsuck.” -John Green
Karen Kavett• Her work on the Tour de Nerdﬁghting poster gave me the idea for my Antithesis, especially the 2008 one and how all the information was ﬁtted into the shape of America.
