The Playground is PLAYGROUND XYZ's online, cloud-based ad building tool. You can use it tool to create and run PLAYGROUND XYZ ads using our ad formats.
We've created this tool with the user in mind. We don't want to force you to spend hours doing training. Everything should be grab and go using standards we're all used to.
All you need to get going is Adobe Photoshop.
Step 1: Design your ad in Photoshop
Each format has a number of easy to use Photoshop templates. Simply pick the format and execution you want to build from our build page and download it's corresponding PSD to start.
The PSDs have a number of shapes and guides to help you design the perfect ad. Most ads have a safe area that you should fit your design into as well as a background colour that we use to fill out your creative.
Once you have finished your design export your creative as a PNG. You must also make sure that all system layers remain visible including the system code (top left corner) and background colours.
Step 2: Upload to the Ad Builder
Getting your Design into a live ad is as simple as dragging and dropping your PNG to the playground Wizard panel. The Wizard cuts your design into its individual components, writes your code to animate them, and delivers you a fully working creative on a live Build URL.
Step 3: Advanced Builds: customise with HTML/CSS/JS
Step 4: Deploy your ad
