If you are coming from the print world, you may need to rethink some of the things you learned in design school about "simple, clean" layouts. Interactive ads tend to be visually busier than print ads, but that doesn't diminish their impact. The ad should also feel just as native on the device as the app in which it was built. At the same time, you need to strike a balance between grabbing attention not going over the top.
360-degree video is typically formatted in an equirectangular projection[8] and is either monoscopic, with one image directed to both eyes, or stereoscopic, viewed as two distinct images directed individually to each eye for a 3D effect.[6] Due to this projection and stitching, equirectangular video exhibits a lower quality in the middle of the image than at the top and bottom.[8] Spherical videos are frequently in curvilinear perspective with a fisheye effect. The heavy barrel distortion often requires rectilinear correction before applications in detection, tracking or navigation.[9]

The use of the term "virtual reality" to describe 360-degree video has been disputed, as VR typically refers to interactive experiences wherein the viewer's motions can be tracked to allow real-time interactions within a virtual environment, with orientation and position tracking. In 360-degree video, the locations of viewers are fixed, viewers are limited to the angles captured by the cameras, and cannot interact with the environment. The non-dynamic nature of video also means that rendering techniques cannot be used to reduce the risk of motion sickness.[21][22]
Of course, in adding complexity to your ads, keep in mind the technical limitations of the networks your users will be operating on. The world's most elegant graphic or snappy capability won't make much of an impression if it takes 45 seconds to download. Make sure that the time between clicking the banner and the first user interaction is less than five seconds. A good rule of thumb is to assume a download rate of about 100kB per second over cellular networks.
We're still in the early days, but the results look extremely promising. For example, a recent Nielsen study (funded by Apple) showed that viewers of a Campbell's iAd featuring new products, recipes and coupons remembered the brand "Campbell's" five times more often than TV ad respondents. Out of 53 million impressions, 1% of users that saw the ad clicked through and spent an average of nearly one minute perusing it. That number may seem small, but this is one market to keep an eye on.
The last thing that I want to mention to you is the importance of always testing multiple different creatives in your campaigns. I recommend testing at least 3 different images and 2 different combinations of copy (6 ads total) for every campaign you run. This greatly increases your chances of creating an ad that resonates with your target audience.
