I have a coffee cup in my left, my Mac in front of me and my iPhone in my right.I’m analyzing the things around me while thinking what should I write in this blog post. And then I realized all objects surrounding me have one thing in common – the design! Even if I talk about chairs, tables, cups, sunglasses, key chains, fruit baskets and others, there are all designed in their specific tone, with a specific tool for a specific reason.
Brian Reed (Senior Experience Design Lead at Adobe) has a great quote about design:
“Everything is Designed. Few Things are Designed well”
Here, at Bannersnack, we believe that design is the pillar point of a great ad, even if we talk about banner ads, social media ads or even visuals to post on blogs, websites or emails.
This is why we are working hard not only to create a tool that can save you time, energy and money but also to develop different educational platforms where you, as a marketer, can learn how to optimize your work.

“Banner Ads — whether for social media or other websites — can be a great strategy for generating leads when they’re designed well. Unfortunately, there are tons of ads out there that are disruptive, spammy, and annoying. That’s why HubSpot and Bannersnack teamed up: to show the value of creating Inbound-y banner ads.”
