'Skins' - Background takeover

A desktop-only advert designed to slot under the webpage's content area. It creates a large impact as the takeover combines a background skin creative with a billboard header at the very top of the page.

We advise to keep important imagery within the designated 'gutter zone' of 180 x 900px, so it is visible on smaller screens.

SKIN - 1900 x 980px
BILLBOARD - 1200 x 170px

WEBSITE AREA- 1200 x 815px
GUTTER ZONE - 180 x 900px
