Primeau-Fahey Studios is a boutique creative agency in Troy that promotes its clients through in-depth research, graphic design, marketing, PR and web. “We were founded in 1993 on the belief that social causes and nonprofit organizations should not have to rely on ad agency pro bono leftovers that are driven by junior staffers. These missions are vital and deserve senior talent at affordable rates,” says Founder and Principal, Kelly Primeau-Fahey.

Since opening her studio, Kelly has developed marketing communication campaigns for a wide variety of nonprofit clients, and her work has won several regional and national awards for, among other clients, Unity House, SUNY Poly, Excelsior College, NYS Department of Health, and the NYS Department of Economic Development and Parks and Trails New York.

In December, Primeau-Fahey closed on a line of credit with the Community Loan Fund. The line of credit will help the agency expand operations and offer even more services to clients. The agency considered working with a traditional lending institution, but chose to move forward with the Community Loan Fund because they wanted to support the CDFI’s mission of building a more inclusive economy.

Kelly previously served as the Art Director with Zone Five Prepress and formerly ran the Art Department for a mid-size printing company, as well as a weekly newspaper in the Capital Region. Kelly is a graduate of the Sage Colleges with a degree in graphic design. She is a former board member of the Albany Ad Club and The Creative Club of Albany.

Primeau-Fahey Studio is certified as a WBE.
