ARTnews BEST DESIGN PRACTICES
Advertisements and content are partners in the ARTnews experience. ARTnews delivers editorial excellence and stunning, decisive visuals. Consistency in aesthetic appeals to our global, art savvy readership. Implementing the following features will enable your advertisement stronger placement options.
1. Keep ads simple
1 image, 1 font, 1 text color
2. Design to center or offer L and R versions for placement flexibility
Right Hand Pages are limited, clean left page ad designs are far more likely to be chosen for better RHP adjacencies.
3. Text should be clear and short
Take a concise approach wit plain language and consistent theme.
Text only ads are very helpful to us and increase the likelihood of more forward placement.
Please refer to the Print Technical Specs for specific measurements and detailed information regarding printed advertisements.
