Social Media Creative Content

The concept revolves around themes where pasta and tennis might overlap as well as the greatness of the Barilla brand and Roger's legacy. Classic tennis moves were paired with dishes to promote recipe consideration. Quotes from Roger that could be paired with actions of cooking were utilized. Furthermore, adjectives that could be used to describe tennis and cooking were paired to similar movements in both categories. As Barilla was a sponsor of the US Open, the campaign featured a robust array of content tied to Roger to engage tennis and culture fans leading up to and during the tournament.
