The North Face invited SHARE to help drive amplification and impact of their brand message for the Pinnacle Project campaign across Europe.
Building affinity with the outdoors and beyond
To push the boundaries of exploration for new people and places, The North Face wanted to do something a little different. Pinnacle Project invited only the most rebellious spirits. They come together through experiences tapping into outdoors, fashion and music scenes most relevant to the brand’s evolving culture.
For the events, The North Face partnered with fashion tradeshow brand B&&B and lifestyle sportswear brand JD Sports. This partnership would strengthen brand affinity in areas beyond the outdoors. Additionally, this diversity ensured each event would entice a different kind of audience.
Therefore, our campaign as a whole needed to be disruptive, authentic to these areas and, most importantly, LIVE. So, across the Alps, Berlin and Manchester, we used a mix of real-time photography, film, interactive experiences and LIVE streams on social, digital and DOOH. Yes, even from 2055M high: demonstrating our commitment to exploration.
Building experiences across the UK
These live experiences were leveraged across all events for viewers and attendees to enjoy; we hosted The North Face UK’s first Instagram Story LIVE in Manchester and live streamed to London billboards, Facebook and thenorthface.com from the Dolomites. To spread our message further, we partnered with athletes, musicians and influencers in real-time, creating bespoke videos, interviews and portraits that celebrated their individuality and connection to The North Face spirit. A sense of community and homage to the iconic Nuptse jacket also filled the events through art installations, customisation stations and Instagram Story DM competitions to win limited edition products.
