HUNTINGTON — Amy Frasure and Wayne Phillips, founders of Bullseye Total Media, cut a ribbon on their new location at 831 4th Ave. in downtown Huntington.

Bullseye opened its doors in 2015 in a Barboursville location with the plan to serve as the Tri-State’s first digital advertising agency. Over the past five years, they have grown and developed into a full-service agency employing multiple graphic designers, web developers, social media coordinators and a seasoned sales team.

“We are excited to be downtown. When we decided to purchase an office; we knew our hearts were in Huntington,” Phillips said.

Bullseye’s new office is located inside the Renaissance building on 4th Avenue. The new space is equipped with a full production studio, audio studio, conference space and offices.

“We want to be a full service, turnkey operation for our clients. The new office is just another step in the right direction for growth,” said Jenette Williams, vice president of creative services at Bullseye. “Now, our clients can come in off the street with the option to film videos, produce professional Facebook Live videos, record podcasts, and take headshots.”

Bullseye cited the #MyHuntington Movement as a deciding factor in their move to the Jewel City.

“My team and I have worked diligently over the last 12 months on the #MyHuntington movement,” Frasure said. “We are passionate about doing our part to change the rhetoric and perception of the city. Huntington is great place to work, live, play and raise a family. We are fortunate we get the opportunity to do life here.”

The Armory Smokehouse, located in Ironton, Ohio, is a newly established restaurant operating out of the remodeled National Guard armory that served the southern Ohio region for many years.

The new establishment specializes in smoked meats, Amish bakery items and Angus premium steaks as well as some seafood dishes.
