  1. I would love that, but I think its fine, I don't really want to be inundated with messages. 😆
  2. Bumping this topic again as I am looking for freelancers and permanent staff.
  3. Hey everyone, I'm looking to expand my network of freelance banner developers who can work within European timezones (GMT/CET) or perhaps permanent staff in Mexico City. Experience with GSAP is of course obvious, but you would need to be highly familiar with Google Studio (Formerly Doubleclick). Experience with DV360 and CM360 would be nice, but not essential. I will also ask if you are okay with spreadsheet (feed) based creative, for DCO solutions, be it in Celtra, Smartly or other creative management platforms. Thanks!
  4. Hello folks! We're looking for someone to join our lovely Creative Production team here at Jellyfish. Do you love building HTML5 banners? We specialise in innovative data-driven digital campaigns, so you will work on display creative for desktop and mobile that is both best-in-class and cutting edge. Please applicants need to be based in London, or at the very least within the UK. Send me a DM if you have any questions or apply directly below! https://apply.workable.com/jellyfish-group-ltd/j/5C3204DCB0/?utm_medium=social_share_link
  5. @saar62097 Yea, sorry I just noticed after I had posted that Q. (Link here for those interested: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdJLacbyG_bdfeb8St54YyQ4S8I8Kz462WxhRew6XEpc1Ezzw/viewanalytics) I've spread it on my LinkedIn and looks like I managed to garner a few more responses.
  6. @saar62097 Any chance we get to see the results of this survey? EDIT: Just realised you can view responses.
  7. Thanks @GreenSock, thanks @Carl This is what gets me. I'm experiencing performance drags on something I know full well that would be fine if I wrote it as DOM elements + GSAP. I found that having a small symbol graphic that was duplicated as a tile was causing performance issues, it didn't seem to handle multiple instances of the same symbol that well. Considering I vaguely remember Flash doing so well with that. Instead I've had to render as a bitmap, which I feel is so odd, but I imagine thats a limitation of the canvas rendering cycle?
  8. This feels like the right thread to post this in. Does anyone have any tips or tricks to improve animation performance in an Adobe Animate file? It's been years since I've used the program, and I'm totally unsure of whats available to me.
  9. So with GWD and something like Adobe Animate. A lot of people will use the GUI to layer and composite their creatives, and then go into Code View/ActionScripts Panel and write GSAP code there. You label each element on the stage and then use JavaScript / GSAP to animate it how you want. When I was learning, I took a Flash banner and then tried to recreate the same thing using HTML + GSAP. I broke apart the file to its constituent graphic elements. Used HTML to layer them as they are in Photoshop CSS to position their starting values JS/GSAP to animate them to their final positions Try doing the same with a CodePen, get a reference animation you want to copy and then try to re-create it. Good luck!
  10. I think a lot of companies are being pressured into using GWD as they’re not present with any other option. (Which is entirely untrue!) Whether it’s budget constraints or people-availability, it’s easier to get a designer trained on GWD than it is to get a front-end developer to build a few banners. Side-note: I might be given the green(sock)-light to open source one of my dynamic banner projects!
  11. As @somnamblst has said you don't need to use GWD for dynamic banners in Studio. The main thing to remember is that when you load your banner, the GSAP timeline should come after the dynamic data has loaded. Enabler.setProfileId(9999999); var devDynamicContent = {}; devDynamicContent.feed = [{}]; devDynamicContent.feed[0]._id = 0; devDynamicContent.feed[0].id = 1; devDynamicContent.feed[0].exitUrl = {}; devDynamicContent.feed[0].exitUrl.Url = 'https://www.example.com/'; devDynamicContent.feed[0].headline1 = `Creazy Headline`; devDynamicContent.feed[0].subline1 = `Some more words`; devDynamicContent.feed[0].image1 = {}; devDynamicContent.feed[0].image1.Type = 'file'; devDynamicContent.feed[0].image1.Url = `https://s0.2mdn.net/creatives/assets/0000000/image.png`; devDynamicContent.feed[0].subline1 = `Buy Greensock Business Green`; Enabler.setDevDynamicContent(devDynamicContent); // Assign copy and images to DOM elements let tl = new TimelineMax(); As for text-fitting, you can mess around with some Javascript to do the same job. Might not be as quick, and you'd also have the handle the web font loading yourself as well.
  12. This always gets me. Someone always believes they need dynamic or responsive banners to fulfil a media request, but there's always an intersection point of the time it takes to build dynamic vs building separate banners by volume. Half the time the request is small enough that its probably faster for me to create 10 sizes separately than coming up with a whole dynamic build.
  13. I didn't realise you could build ads for the Criteo platform. I always thought it was a managed platform and they did everything for you.
  14. Hello! There's still some of us around, trying to make a living. From what I've seen, and as @leolo69 has alluded to is that production budgets for display banners has dramatically been cut. A few years ago I was at a DoubleClick event where we talked about budgets, and 85% went to media, and only 15% for creative and production, my current estimates puts that figure at 6%. This leaves a lot of work being out sourced to cheaper labour markets. (I may or may not have had a hand in this, I hear a lot of cheap production houses are using Bannertime to scale up. Oops) I've seen more traction with dynamic banners, or data-driven creatives, with programmatic being the buzz word for the media side for a while now, clients are more interested in the cost savings that can be had by developing a set of banners once, and re-using them for several seasons. That being said there's always those gem contracts where there is loads of budget and a real desire to get creative! They're few and far between these days but here's hoping the market will shift back to creative! EDIT: I also haven't done a decent interactive/rich-media creative in ages!
  15. AMP Ads should run anywhere, but to actually see the AMP parts in action, it is likely that you'll need a compatible Ad Server to test them. Or you might be able to use the Playground. How you would normally code HTML5 + CSS, just remember to use the appropriate <html amp4ads> meta tag and amp scripts. https://github.com/ampproject/amphtml/blob/master/extensions/amp-a4a/amp-a4a-format.md There is a limit to JS in A4A, so you'll need to write your animations as CSS keyframes/transitions or compatible WAAPI
