Digital Inline Optimized Ad Size Specifications

The Digital Synergist seeks to provide a superior experience for readers on three device types: desktop, tablet, and phone.

To optimize an ad for the Digital Synergist, you will need to create separate files for each device type. Because it is unlikely that an ad created for a desktop monitor can accommodate as much text as an ad created for print, we recommend that marketers simplify their creative for digital display and use significantly less text than they would for a print ad. Similarly, an ad for the phone should use text sparingly, with larger fonts for legibility.
