Instructions for the two creativities
- It’s mandatory to provide 2 creativities: 1.000x270 pixel ( max 100kb ) and 1.192x270 pixel ( max 100kb ). If the adv format is sold only on 3BMeteo, it’s possibile to send only one creativity: 100x270 pixel ( max 100 kb ). The creativities change the standard header of the page. On responsive sites, the creativities will be centered on top of the page.
- The side background of the page and the areas of creativities not employable by the subject must have the same color.
- Make sure that the elements of Virgilio and Libero portals and 3BMeteo (logo and search field in the white area) are clearly visible with proper contrast and readability. The portal elements are included in the PSD template by way of example, but should not be included in the creativity.
- Creativities can accommodate a call to action button by the maximum size of 120×40 px.
- Any logo displayed under the search field must be smaller than Libero,Virgilo and 3BMeteo logos.
- The subjects of creativities should not occupy the area of 20 pixels below the search field and above the navigation menu, and the area of at least 60 pixels around the search button (highlighted grey area in the PSD template).
- Create a gradient along the edge of creativities with the same color code of the background (code to be indicated to Italiaonline), in order to obtain a uniform and aesthetically appealing result.
- Creativities cannot include frames or borders that delineate the boundary.

Instructions for the creativity
- The format is “flexible” so the creativity is automatically resized in relation to the screen resolution of the device on which it is displayed. However, the aspect ratio of 2: 1 is always guaranteed.
- This is a mobile format so it’ necessary to send the creativity in two sizes . This allows a better display of creativity on smartphone screens at higher pixel density. Don’t insert logos and text too small.
- Creativity modifies the standard page header by anchoring the top of the screen to the scroll. When the format is anchored, part of the creativity is covered by the free header. Check the safe area in the jpeg3 template.
- The background of the page is customized with the chosen color (code to be indicated to Italiaonline). Create a shade along the edge of the creatives, with the same color code as the background to obtain a uniform and aesthetically quality result.
- Creatives cannot have panels or edges that delimit the outline.
