A super-swell personality

Golly! We wanted the NEARcation brand to be as much about the location as it is about the experience. That’s why we created the NEARcation travel agent, whose enthusiasm for our campaign comes from good, old-fashioned fun.

A one-stop shop for NEARcation planning

Our vision for the NEARcation website was to create a resource to collate all that Lakewood has to offer, from golf courses, to parks, to an international grub crawl. Plus, we lucked out with an awesome URL,, and are pleased to announce that the website campaign is soaring.

Our photographer captured the fun and professionalism behind the scenes (or BTS as the kids say), of our NEARcation shoots. Our wonderful actors also doubled as models, making for some enticing action shots in Lakewood’s star locations.
