—Type of elements dominate the page by giving emphasis on the headline. It uses extra large fonts and font styles that grab attention. Visuals are of secondary importance. The ad’s beauty and appeal are defined by its typeface and meaning. This layout is bold (perfect for catching attention) and covered by huge letters and words, which takes up to 80% of the ad.
