The size of the frame that “opens” and show the creative is: 100% width of the site (1024px for HLN & 7Sur7, 1240px for DM) by 500px height.

The creative that is visible inside the frame however, doesn’t have to be limited in height.

 

 

 

 

It can be made 100% wide by 100% high, so that you “scroll” over the content of the creative, as you can see in the screenshots.

Go to the template via the button below.  You can find some generic documentation on the template here.

This material has to be approved by our editorial team, so please submit it on time.

Overlayer display time: max. 15 sec.

Overlayers on Mobile and Desktop should be responsive.

    The frame may never become completely opaque during animation.

    A clear close button has to be implemented in the top-right corner.

    In case of a Full Screen Overlayer, there are a few restrictions:

    • Transparent background (site needs to be visible). Smaller elements can be animated within the frame.
    •  A second close button has to be implemented at the bottom of the overlayer with the text "Go back to the site" In the site's native language.
