Post Half-Blood Prince creative designer reveals Weasley's Wizard Wheezes props

In a piece with Creative Review Nicholas Saunders, creative designer for Half-Blood Prince, reveals some pieces he created for scenes in the Weasley's Wizard Wheezes shop in Diagon Alley. Pictures may be seen here (there are 10 images in total);











Quote:
"I worked in the graphic design department for the film under the watchful gaze of senior graphic artists Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima – and alongside fellow assistant graphic artist Lauren Wakefield," Saunders explains. "It was just the four of us who created packaging for this particular set but this work here is just the stuff that I personally designed.”
Quote:
"I was briefed to work on the Weasleys Wizarding Wheezes originally," Saunders continues. "I was also asked to come up with a number of names for more products (such as Anti Gravity Hats) to adorn the shelves. Then after the product names were approved and cleared I used the names as a base to start the designs. When the boxes were ready they were printed on mass up to 400 then they were placed on boxes of all different shapes and sizes. Then after this stage the set dressers took them to fill three storeys of shop shelves in the shop on the Diagon Alley set."
Nick confirms on his website that he is back at work on Deathly Hallows.

It's funny that they put so very much effort into this scene that is like 2 minutes. But very, very cool!!

Very Creative Work!! Thumbs up! even though the scene was 2-3 minutes, I enjoyed watching it, and enjoyed every detail of it... Great Work!

I wish tht scene had been much longer. So much effort for such a short and almost inconsequential scene.
