Starting on your living room sofa isn’t as simple as it sounds. Starry Eyes was founded in 2015 as a home-based business by two star-crossed lovers who knew their skills would help local businesses, providing them professional design and marketing services. For us, growing involved a lot of sleepless nights, gallons of coffee, and facing the unknown.
Where We Create
We love bragging about our community and telling others about all of the wonderful things going on within it. We’re proud to be connected with the Mercer Street Grassroots District, Southern-WV’s most happening strip, currently enjoying a local business renaissance.
It’s no secret that West Virginia faces a variety of socioeconomic challenges, but communities like ours serve as proof that change can happen. If you’re not from WV, we invite you to visit our studio to meet our team of professionals. We do suggest, however, that you make plans to spend your entire day and evening in our community to enjoy the food, drinks, and fun.
