Display advertising creative as we know it today had a very humble beginning. The first banner ad, AT&T’s “You Will” campaign, was displayed on Wired Magazine in 1994. Don’t even get us started on the first landing page!
Thankfully, we’ve come a long way since that funfetti-esque block text and dull grey background. The art of creating an effective and eye-catching display advertisement is, obviously, a vital piece of the bigger digital advertising picture. With a myriad of different creative types, sizes, designs, call to actions, campaign goals, and more, the possibilities are endless! Because of this, knowing what best practices to follow can be tricky.
