Minimalist Product Shots for Banners

Businesses are always looking for new ways to market their select products, of course. But throwing out complicated terms and over-designed ads isn't going to make it any easier. Sometimes, just like with the minimalist movie posters, the thing that you need to do is crop out more than you add in. Funny enough, we already have several examples out there in the market for you to draw from!

Showcasing a Product on a Banner

Take a look at ads from Apple or Amazon: when they're showcasing that trendy new tablet, e-reader, or iPhone, what do you see? Most of the time, it's just someone using the product in a single action: lying on a beach, a hammock, at work, or on the go. Very simple. It shows your product alive and well, and most of all functional, in the wild!

Another technique you can use is absolutely nothing. I mean it: nothing. Have nothing else in the ad except for your product, the name of it, a slogan, and maybe your company logo. Apple and Amazon have utilized this for the iPhone and the Kindle e-readers, and it's quite effective.

The "nothingness" in the background of the ad draws more attention to the product. it gives an aura of subtle power and confidence, and let's the customer observe the finer details without being overloaded with background clutter. Take a look at the following examples and get started on some great banner designs of your own!
