Chief Barketing Officer


The supportive structure that leads to a door represents a new world of possibilities. This is often referred to as a portico and is symbolic of the supportive creative process we guide our clients through. Our mission is to become collaborators with our clients and stay equally invested in their vision. Copper represents the mineral of Brazil, where Lilian was born and is commonly used to craft pots that hold unique flavors and provide a container for culture, traditions, stories and memories.

For us Copper and Portico are strongly tied to our values and represent our love for art, architecture and culture. The Copper Portico represents our company’s heritage and the creative journey that brings forth new realms of possibilities.
