How did we choose these as the top banner ad designers?

We know your banner ad design has a direct impact on the success of your marketing campaigns—and because we know how important it is, we take our job of helping you find the right designer seriously. Here’s what we looked for when choosing the designers to feature on this list:

1. Design quality

When a new designer joins the 99designs platform, one of the design experts on our team goes through their portfolio and considers the technical execution, conceptual thought, and knowledge of design principles evident in their work. After the review, they then assign the designer one of three levels:

  • Top Level
  • Mid Level
  • Entry Level

You’ll find these levels displayed on each designer’s portfolio so you can easily see if the designer you’re considering is someone with a ton of experience or someone who’s more up-and-coming.

2. Banner ad design experience

Choreographing a tap number for a Broadway show and breakdancing in a hip-hop video both require some serious training and skill (not to mention coordination!), but most dancers specialize in one or the other—not both.

It’s the same thing with design. So, in addition to looking at the overall quality of their work, we specifically vetted every designer on this list to make sure they specialized in banner ad design.

3. Professionalism

It goes without saying that you want to hire someone with design skills (that’s why you’re here!), but you also want to hire a designer who communicates with you throughout the process, who delivers their designs on time, and who is all-around easy to work with. In order to make sure that happens—and that all of our recommended designers are professionals in service as well as design—we took past customer experiences into account when choosing the talent on this list.
