How to make an HTML banner

  • 1

    Choose the right banner size

    The first step is to make sure you choose the right size for your design. If you need to create the same design in different sizes, you can use the Design Generator to work on multiple sizes at once. This reduces the creation process, so that you can create more html banners at once.

    Create your banner design

    Inspiration may not come when you need it, so starting from a template can save you a lot of time and effort. You can choose a template from our gallery, which holds thousands of HTML5 banner ads. Using our HTML5 banner creator, browse through the animated designs until you find the one which suits your needs. If you feel creative and have an excellent idea for your html banners, you can start from a blank canvas and fully design it yourself.

    Design your HTML5 banner

    Customize your design, starting with the right background. You can choose from a wide variety of stock images, or you can even upload your own photos. Once your background is set, you can play around adding text and using the colors and fonts you want. If you have a font specially designed for your brand, you can import it, save it in a brand kit together with your logo and other brand assets and use them all for all your creations.

    Add HTML5 animations

    With your design ready, you can move to the animation stage of the creation process. Add individual animations to all your elements such as text, icons, shapes, and buttons. To save more time, you can use our Magic Animator to add animations to all your elements with just one click. These will create a more dynamic impact and grab your audience’s attention.

    Download the HTML5 banner ads

    Once your HTML5 banner is created, you can use it in multiple ways. Download it in HTML5 format and upload it to the desired ad network (e.g., Google Ads). You also have the option to download the banner in AMP HTML format.

Animated HTML5 ads

Create professional, versatile and responsive ads

Using HTML5 ads can greatly benefit your display advertising campaigns. Animations capture your audience’s attention and generate more engagement, higher CTR and, in the end, a higher conversion rate.

HTML5 is supported by all major web browsers and can be used for much more than just advertising banners. You can create engaging animations at the fraction of the file size, making them perfect for any additional functionality you might want to add to your website or web store.

Create responsive ads that will automatically adjust to the correct size based on the resolution of the screen your ads or visuals appear on.


What are the most common banner ad sizes?

There are a few different sizes that Google recommends when running banner ads on mobile devices and desktop. For desktop, these are the ones that work best: 300 x 250, 336 x 280, 728 x 90, 970 x 90, 468 x 60, 300 x 600, 160 x 600, 250 x 250, and 200 x 200. For mobile devices, you can use 300 x 200, 300 x 50, 300 x 100, 250 x 250, and 200 x 200. 

What are the qualities of an effective online banner ad?

To create an effective online ad, you should focus on: using the recommended sizes; thinking about your audience when writing the copy; adding a clear CTA that drive people to take action; using an eye-catching design that’s relevant to what you’re advertising; being concise to make sure people understand your message; being clear; using animation to engage people; choosing colors that stand out.

What is a good resolution for a banner?

The image resolution determines the quality of the design. The lower the image's resolution, the smaller the file size. That’s why it’s important to ensure your ad is under 150 kb, which is the size limit for Google Ads. When it comes to the resolution, 72 PPI (Pixels per Inch) is used most often, which corresponds with a laptop screen's resolution.
