Our experiential strategy showcased Lincoln as a luxury lifestyle brand committed to effortless ownership. By retro-fitting a shipping container with luxury finishes and experiential activations, we brought the effortless campaign message to life. All furniture and decor within the Summerhouse were inspired by the thoughtful and empathetic design of the Lincoln Navigator.

Under the Stars
Thirty local influencers enjoyed a luxury glamping experience atop Pier 17 with sweeping views of lower Manhattan, East River and the Brooklyn Bridge. Premium tenting was provided with memory foam mattresses and custom gift sets. Lounge sets, social games and a welcome cocktail while a soundscape artist played live, throughout the night, were provided to aid in the tranquil mindset Under the Stars set out to achieve.
