Empathy. Growth. Creativity.

hi, I'm Lilian Santini

I’m a brand strategist, author, and the founder of The Copper Portico, a branding company focused on building authentic brands through design.

Originally from Brazil, I came to the US in 2004 to pursue a career in Marketing. Little did I know that 18 years later I’d still be here, working on the things I’m passionate about, learning new skills and educating others.

This website gives you a glimpse of both my personal and professional projects. I invite you to stay, explore and if interested, subscribe for my newsletter for occasional updates. Thank you for stopping by!
