At MinaLima we are intrigued and enchanted by all things graphic. It’s our passion. We aim to be less than conventional and much more than ordinary.

Our runner up Felipe Gabriel has sent us some wonderful pieces of work to show you all, so here are two pieces from the young talent! Inspired by all the retro space art that we posted a while back.


“These are two Space designs which I was actually inspired by some graphics you posted on the blog.
And also by a couple of songs I really like, for the text. They are somehow supposed to be covers of magazines for futuristic travel packages that will be offered someday (hopefully) but designed with a vintage style.” Felipe Gabriel

Congratulations to our winner of the Olympic Poster Design competition which we were running during the London Olympic Games, London 2012. Here is a an interesting piece of graphic design work by Thomas Love for you all to look at.

On his own work:

“Last summer, my friend Katie and I, decided that instead of having a standard Halloween party, we should do a murder mystery instead and that if we were going to do so we might as well go the whole way! One of our all-time favourite films is the 1985 cult classic ‘Clue’. We took this amazing film as inspiration and created a complete murder mystery party for 15 people!  From scratch!
Katie wrote a lot of the back stories and prompts for the characters whilst I concentrated on the graphics and the props. Above are just some of them including book covers, newspaper cuttings, business cards, birth certificates and much more. Each one of them had some link to the story and would help uncover the murderer. For example, what appears on first sight to be a fun prop of a book actually turns out to be a vital clue to a long hidden secret!
The evening was a great success and the murderer was revealed, but I’m not going to tell you who!”
This is a fantastic tip for any new designer, if there isn’t any work around, make it for yourself or friends! You never know when someone might want to see your portfolio.

The Olympics are over (well the first bunch, now it’s time for the paralympics!) and Team GB have done an incredible job, I tend to count 3rd place as 1st seeing as China and the USA are always at the top, so congrats to all the amazing athletes who took part in London 2012.

As promised here are all the entrants for the Olympic poster design competition we have been running. Which is your favourite? We’re still at LeakyCon Chicago so we thought we’d give you another few days to submit your design. Go on, have a go!
