About

“When we add your essence to the mix, that’s the magic ingredient that makes the brand come alive.”

Your brand is your introduction to the world and the way you continue to tell your story everyday. It should inspire you and make you proud.

It must be a compelling and authentic reflection of your vision, so that it can attract the right people to make it a reality.

This is why we start our process with a foundational deep-dive, understanding your story, motivation, and uniqueness – so that we can shed light on that special value you are creating in the world.

From our first conversation, we start to see your brand come to life – the colors, the lines, the weight of the font.

Everytime we work on a project, we start from a unique place and create something that will be born because of who you are.

We are painting your vision. Your essence is the magic ingredient.

Beyond a new logo or business card, this work leaves you rooted in a purpose – a vision of your place in the world.

About Me

I am so thrilled to welcome you to this space, and share my vision with you.

I founded The Copper Portico with an intention of being rooted in collaboration and invested in your success.

I love that moment in the creative process when we know we have translated your vision into a physical representation that will make you proud. After 10+ years of helping entrepreneurs and world-renowned companies create dynamic visual brands, I have the pleasure of leading work that is rooted in authenticity, relationships, and one–of-a-kind aesthetics.

We are most proud of the trust our clients continue to place on us, and we’ve had the honor of being recognized with the Muse Award for Brand Identity, NYX Award for Logo Design, and Best Print Design by Design Rush.

When we work together, I want you to know that you are seen here, and that we are committed to shine a spotlight on your uniqueness. I want our work to be a doorway for you to walk through, owning your worth, and opening to all your new possibilities.

I was born in a small town in Brazil, and I was always fascinated with creating beautiful things.

At my first job as an English teacher, I prided myself on making beautiful decks that would make it more fun for my students to learn and communicate. I’ve always intuitively known and trusted the power of beautiful design.

When I moved to NYC in my early 20’s, I began designing and building websites on WordPress for small businesses and entrepreneurs. From that moment, I was hooked on the impact and expansion that was possible with a beautiful and authentic brand.

My passion for women empowerment, languages, mission-driven organizations and mysticism is woven into my work everyday.
