Portrait of Lilian Santini


My name is Lilian and I founded The Copper Portico with a vision to collaborate with and become invested in your success. Relationships are the cornerstone of our process, and we love creating gorgeous brands for those bringing good to the world.

A portico is the supportive structure that leads to a door. For us, it symbolizes the collaborative creative process we guide you through. Copper is the mineral of Brazil, where I was born, and it is used to craft pieces that provide a container for culture, traditions, stories and memories.

The Copper Portico represents our company’s heritage and the shared creative journey that brings forth new realms of possibilities.

Featured Projects

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

We had the honor to design the Gala brand material for the 64th Annual Vizcaya Ball, inspired by Truman Capote’s Masquerade Ball from 1966 and the 100th anniversary of Vizcaya’s garden. The Ball was hosted November 2021 in Miami, Florida.

University of Miami

The University of Miami is a vibrant and diverse academic community that has rapidly progressed to become one of America’s top research universities. We work with UM to help them renew the visual language of the College of Engineering for the new times, conveying their message in an objective and clear way.

EsoTerra Brand Identity Project


EsoTerra believes that patriarchy is on its way out. There is a new way emerging, and it’s now time for the divine feminine to lead and for the divine masculine to support. We worked with the founders Sage and Maya to create a brand identity that reflects their values and represents their vision.
