Banner ads

Create a new banner ad

Banner ads are simple ads that fit a specific size slot in a web page or app. 

To create a new banner ad:

  1. Select New File

  2. In the "Create New Blank File" dialog, choose Banner as the ad type.
  3. Choose from the following options:

    Give the ad a name (required). This will be the name of the HTML file.


    Choose where you want to save the file. You can save your file locally on your computer, or save to Google Drive


    Select the ad environment where you want the ad to run. Google Web Designer supports DoubleClick, AdMob, and AdWords ad environments. You can also create a Non-google file with no ad-specific code if you wish.


    Either check "Responsive layout" to create an ad that automatically sizes to match the viewport or ad slot it's displayed in, or set the dimensions for the ad if you know the specific size. Common banner sizes are listed in the dropdown list. If you want to use a size that isn't listed, select Custom from the dropdown, and enter the width and height manually.

    Animation mode

    Select the animation mode that you want to use initially (you can switch at any time). Quick mode lets you animate your ad scene by scene, while Advanced mode lets you animate individual elements on their own timeline

  4. Click Ok
