Campaign encourages Bostonians to explore a new neighborhood

The new apartments at Portside at East Pier are located in the up-and-coming neighborhood of East Boston which has a growing reputation as a destination for unique and authentic dining like Rino’s Place and Angela’s Café. The challenge was to encourage savvy young professionals to come explore this new neighborhood and choose to be one of the first members of the new East Pier community.

The new face of urban living is a group of young people that consider themselves “pioneers.” They enjoy exploring new restaurants, nightlife, attractions and neighborhoods. They take pride in being able to tell their friends about a “hot new place.” And with “Eastie” being voted “Best Neighborhood” by Curbed Boston it was time to get these pioneers excited about exploring this new place.

Less a brand and more a challenge. The campaign for Portside at East Pier was a call to explore everything that makes Eastie and Portside at East Pier great. From navigational themed social graphics to a scavenger hunt style social contest promoted through social advertising, coaster hand out and local partnerships, the campaign provided just the right motivation to “Go East.”

The Results? Amazing.
