As you may recall I’m on a personal mission to help people make even better use of online display advertising by driving innovative new ideas, formats and highlighting great creative – because online ads are amazing and we can only continue to improve them.
Earlier this year we hosted the 120 Hours ad exhibition in partnership with Brand Republic to put the spotlight on a select few great ads. Now it’s time to open the floodgates to show the massive variety of ads flying around the net.
I’ve compiled the below list of ten online galleries (in alphabetical order) showcasing hundreds of recent online and mobile display campaigns. They’re fantastic and worth bookmarking because you can view and play with ads that may not have been aimed at you.
