Agency Rokkan is helping recreate the image of Cadillac as the brand releases its latest crossover vehicle.

Rokkan’s creative vision for Cadillac recently came to life at ComplexCon, a gathering of millennial movers and shakers. Cadillac became the official sponsor of the ‘Pigeons and Planes’ performance stage at the multi-day event and had an immersive art installation featuring the new Cadillac XT4 crossover plus exclusive merchandise including a one-of-a-kind moment delivered by rapper and entrepreneur, Nas.

The branding started with the release of ‘4 Wherever It Takes You by Cadillac.'. Two 30-second commercials – ‘Joy’ and ‘Wonder’ – embody a youthful energy and vitality many haven’t seen from the heritage auto maker. Rokkan hopes to fold that energy into the brand, while remaining true to Cadillac’s legacy of expert craftsmanship, luxury features and high-quality vehicles.

Each element of the XT4 campaign was crafted to support below- and above-the-line efforts seamlessly. So far, along with the two 30-second spots, there are three 15-second broadcast spots, more than 30 digital and social spots, including a strategic suite of product videos, OOH and interactive content – plus the bold step into the world of streetwear and music.
