Call 900 BANNER


We reached another milestone and forgot to celebrate. We posted out 900th banner and are well onto our way to 1,000. Which agency will win their place in the history books as the agency behind the 1,000 banner :)

The 800 Banner Beast


What's this hairy 800 all about?

We've reached our latest milestone of 800 banners! And we've achieved it in just 63 days (not including weekends) thanks to some frantic posting of Cannes work from the team. That's an average of 1.5 banners a day - no other site gives you that!

A beast this big needs feeding, so please keep submitting work. And if you're submitting other interactive work for consideration in the news section, please remember to include a URL and/or screenshot to the work and a very brief summary/overview.

PS. Hope you enjoyed our photoshop effort on the 800 :)

Hot Linking is over


If you have been hot linking our banner files you'll realize now it no longer works.

While I don't mind it being done when there is a link back to our site almost all the other sites never did this. It's slowing down our server and in the last 2 months costing several hundred dollars in excess bandwidth.

New Editors joins the team

The only known image of the Bannerblog team, in a rare sitting together to discuss the addition of a new member, and the approval of a new typewriter ribbon

While the Bancroft Family are busy protecting the editorial independence of the Wall Street Journal from Rupert Murdoch, we at the Bannerblog Journal live a much easier life. Over a glass of 1984 Penfolds Grange at Tetsuya's (we don't have a NoBu downunder yet) we decided life would be so much easier if we had another editor, and with that we charged our glasses , put out a memo, then sat back and smoked a few cubans.

The past few months traffic has been growing at a steady pace, with submissions filling our inbox on an almost on a daily basis. To reflect this growth in traffic, particularly in the US market which accounts for 20.45% of our audience, we're please to announce new members of the Bannerblog team, Kate Daggett-Cohen from New York and Paul Collins from Akestam.Holst in Sweden who will help improve our coverage from Europe.

We're still in dire need of an Asia based editor that can help bring that region into the spotlight by posting banners at least once or twice a week. Ashley is doing his bit by dating his own 'Wendy Deng' to get us some influence in Asia, but realistically we don't expect that maneuver to pay off until after the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

You get to pimp your own agencies campaigns occassionally, which will no doubt score you some brownie points with your VP/MD/CEO/ECD. And in the unlikely event of a News Corp takeover, you'll be Web 2.0's latest hot property.
