Rolling 3D Tiles Grab User Attention With HTML5 Collage Format

The programmatic-ready HTML5 Collage format is an expandable, creative rich format that appears to expand from a banner, with an animated effect moving to the left.

But surprise! The banner, actually a 300 x 600-sized panel positioned above the ad placeholder, displays a grid that prior to user interaction, shows the tiles in the grid rolling in a 3D-style cubic animation between each tile. The rolling effect either starts automatically before the user has interacted with the ad, or happens when the user hovers across the tiles. Browsing over a tile for a duration of time increases its size.

The collage effect doesn’t stop there, though. If the user clicks on a particular tile, the panel expands smoothly to the left, growing to a 910 x 600-sized panel that displays the banner experience to the right, and the creative associated with the tile that you clicked to the left.

There are three example creatives as the panels unfold, including a video creative, that display depending upon the tile that you click, with different creative content.

The HTML5 Collage is perfect if you’re looking for a creatively rich expanding ad that catches your users’ attention in a beautifully unfolding way.
