As any business owner knows, its extremely important to advertise your product/service. If people don’t know about it, then they won’t be able to buy it. One great way to do this is by using Mass Communication, which means communicating to huge audiences, usually through mass media such as magazines, radio, television, or newspapers.  For this collection we will be looking at using the internet as the niche communication.

Today we have gathered some awesome examples of advertisements seen around the design community. You have probably seen almost all of them. However we think they serve as great examples of what an ad should look like. When designing, keep in mind that one of the most crucial parts is attractiveness. Nobody will click on a sketchy ugly ad.

Heres an example of my own banner that I created to advertise Inspirationfeed on other blogs. Some of some goals I had for this banner were:

  • Grab attention(the color definetly completes that task.
  • Show my logo
  • Explain what  my website is about in a few words
  • Make the ad attractive
  • Make the user want to click it to find out more

As simple as it seems, its very effective!

Don’t forget to check out our previous article on this topic. There I give an example explanation about Niche and Target Markets.

  1. Some great examples there.

    I have just set up my own banner advertising network, so get to see a lot of quality ads.

  2. Great examples. I am also a banner designer and you can see my work at, may be you like the quality of my work too? 🙂

  3. Sweet – That’s my banner right there. Go go 😉


  4. Some nice examples. I think with these types of banners the brighter the better really. Some of the more muted ones, although nice in design, don’t always stand out to well amongst clouds of brighter banners.

    Great selection though.

  5. Most from this collection are nice. I wonder if anyone can showcase a collection of good advertising banners.

  6. Cool Inspiration….

  7. nothing diferent! is more a post advertising

  8. erm am I missing something?

    How are these ‘pixel perfect’? …they’re just small size banners no? There are also a fair few that don’t even have a call to action!

    I wonder how much cash will be earned from affiliate deals by clicking through!?

  9. Lol, you obviously did not read the article. I clearly state that I’m in no way associated to the following companies. Hover over every single image, and you will see the url it will direct you to.

  10. Such eye candies these ads are. Thanks for sharing!
