Myles Younger Co-Founder, Marketing and Business Development Background: B2B Marketing After several years running B2B advertising campaigns in the financial services and software industries, Myles was frustrated with the agency creative process. It took an astonishing amount of money and time to develop even simple ad campaigns. In 2007, Myles was struck with the an idea for making the creative process more efficient for banner advertising. Shortly thereafter, he and Jeremy began working on Canned Banners in their spare time. Until mid-2010, Myles continued honing his B2B marketing skills, eventually ending up in an international marketing role at Thomson Reuters. Before Canned Banners consumed all his time, Myles was a pretty good guitarist, singer, writer, and illustrator.
Jeremy Knight Co-Founder, Product Design and Flash Development Background: Ad Agency Jeremy is at his core, a designer and developer has always enjoyed both aspects equally. He started college as a Computer Science major, switching after a year to Graphic Design and to this day can't make up his mind which he'd rather do. Upon graduation, he decided to try designing and building something called an "internet web page". To his surprise he had a knack for it. After several years building his Flash portfolio in Boston, he moved to San Francisco to work for the award-winning ad agency Venables Bell & Partners creating online creative for brands like Orville Redenbacher, Pacific Gas & Electric and HBO. He is widely recognized as the most handsome member of Canned Banners.
Chris Mears Co-Founder, Web Development Background: Front-end and Back-end Web Development Chris has been developing web sites for over 10 years. Though he received his degree in Communication Systems Management, he quickly realized his true passion was in web technologies. He is widely regarded as the geekiest member of Canned Banners.

Other sites that offer self-serve ad creation are overly complicated, low-quality, or both. Canned Banners offers advertisers well-designed templates along with a handful of easy options to customize an ad. The simplicity of our ad builder, along with thoughtful template design, allows anyone to create a professional-quality ad in minutes.
Too complex: 4delite, BannerSnack
Poor quality:AdDesigner.com, BannerCreator.ru, and dozens of others
Complex AND Poor quality: AdReady, Google Display Ad Builder
