ResponsiveAds™ Studio is a feature-rich fluid design platform. It’s fast and easy to produce high-impact ads that can be deployed in any size (for instance, our infinite sized Fully-Fluid™ format).
With Fully-Fluid™, anyone can create cohesive ads in a nearly infinite range of layouts, all derived from a single creative design.
The ResponsiveAds™ Studio incorporates three programs:
- Fluid Designer
- HTML5 Export and Ad Serving Suite
This overview explores the key functions of these three programs and details strategies to create engaging ad units, proof those ads, export your creative package or publish into a cloud-hosted server, and analyze campaigns using precise metrics.
For a shorter, quick-start guide to these programs, see: Getting Started - A Quick-Start Guide.
