My small company contracted with Yahoo to try there "Monster" ads (425x600) on a highly targeted area of a lifestyle site.
I am trying to find examples of creative that have been successful to help me design my campaign. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
thank you,

Welcome ffctas,

Most of the ads I have seen that size are Flash movies. They allowed users to explore the ad and get more information before clicking through. I found these nicer than just a large picture that is clickable. It allows me to go only if I am interested and I think would give you a more targeted visitor.

If you want examples then sign up for yahoo mail. They throw these in all over the place.

yeah it's mostly flash stuff. in germany, web.de has a lot of them in their sub-categories.

also gamespy used them. i don't know if they still do, but they had real big banners on their site on top.

hope that helps.
