Acquisitions up North

Proof that not everything that happens in the marketing and advertising world in Idaho takes place in and around the Treasure Valley:

Advantage Advertising in Lewiston acquired Digital Barn Productions last month, according to the Lewiston Tribune.

The two firms have moved into a 1,600 square foot space in the Means Building in Lewiston, which has been “customized to include a video production studio with two editing suites, audio recording booth, conference and break rooms, lobby and offices for all of the current staff as well as room for several new hires.”

Dallas and Bobri Roberts, who founded what eventually became Digital Barn Productions in 1993, and Christopher Billow, a web and production manager, have joined Advantage’s current staff of six in the new space.
