Mock Olive Garden Ads

Programs: Adobe Illustrator

I created 5 different fake ads for the restaurant, Olive Garden to promote them coming to my city, Thunder Bay, ON. The 5 are for a billboard, an Instagram carousel, a full page for our local magazine, and a small square and leaderboard ad for a magazine page. I went with a more modern and simple style for these.

I wanted to show off their food, but since I couldn’t get photos of their real dishes, I found a few photos from Unsplash of pasta, salad, and bread sticks. I didn’t want the background to be completely blank, so I drew a few images of different ingredients and a few things to represent Thunder Bay, as in the Sleeping Giant and maple leaf.
