About

Gabriella Stefanelli

I gained my first artistic skills in traditional animation while I worked towards my Bachelor’s degree at Edinboro University.  As a member of the millennial generation, it was an easy transition to computer animation as I taught myself the software that was used in the advertising industry.  That software knowledge allowed me to work in multiple industries to gain a well rounded experience in doing motion graphics, videography, graphic design and animations.

    Gabriella creates all content materials for marketing in the form of animations, videos, and graphic designs for the Lincoln Stars USHL hockey team. All of this content is used for advertising to their social media platforms, sponsorship commitments, and fan engagement during games.  Then once the puck is dropped, she changes hats and runs the show!  She enjoys using the other side of the brain to write the script, schedule events, manage the internship program, directs the graphics and works as a team to run a three-hour show to ensure everyone is having fun.

      Originally hired as the Manager of Advertising Content.

      Gabriella has done contract based work for a variety of clients including USHL Lincoln Stars hockey team, PostGame, Music For Veterans, Nepris, Erie Dance Consortium, Fallen Soldiers Picnic, and Erie Insurance.

        Gabriella collaborated with another member of the marketing team to provide all three companies with photography, videography, graphic design & social media support.
