Google has launched the AdWords Display Ad Builder, which enables advertisers to build AdWords-compliant display ads without having to hire a designer.
Ads can be customized to feature certain text, images and the advertiser logo. According to the AdWords blog, colors and backgrounds can also be changed, and ad sizes can be scaled to fit any possible placement across Google's content network — including video and in-game ad placements.
