Lilly Pereira
Principal / Creative Director
Lilly Pereira is a designer, artist, and creative director who specializes in print communications for education. She worked for 10 years at a small branding and design firm before opening her own design business in 2012. 

Lilly specializes in magazines for universities, colleges, and secondary schools. Many of her projects have won awards over the years, including recognition from the Society of Publication Designers, Ad Club of Western Massachusetts, and Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). 

An avid reader, Lilly is rarely without a magazine or book. But when she does have spare time you might find her participating enthusiastically (if often unsuccessfully) in the local trivia night, with her team, Alpaca Lips, Meow.
