Fingerpaint Adds to Creative Team

March 30,2017

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – Fingerpaint, a full-service marketing agency with offices in Arizona, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania, has added Stefan Hanley to its creative team. Hanley will be based in the agency’s headquarters in Saratoga Springs, New York.

Hanley is a talented copywriter with a witty, educated command of language, which he leverages for integrated branding exercises. He has honed his style while working across a diverse spectrum of industries, from technology to construction, providing inspired copy for domestic and global audiences on behalf of integrated agencies and international start-ups, and on his own as a hired gun for a number of companies.

His portfolio includes work across traditional and digital channels for a roster of clients that spans four continents. Stefan’s tool kit includes writing for SEO, editing, UX design, research and strategy development, and presenting.

He earned his bachelor’s degree at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University.

“Stefan’s blended background in both healthcare and general consumer marketing really complements the depth of our talented creative team,” said Bill McEllen, who runs the Saratoga Springs office. “He has the ability to craft engaging content, develop strategy and work in tandem with our interactive team, which is critical as our marketing landscape continues to evolve.”
