Over the years, we’ve listened to your feedback and added lots of innovations across search, display, mobile, video, social, local, and measurement to help you get great results with AdWords. We also want your experience setting up and managing campaigns to be easier and more enjoyable. So, over the last several months, as part of our aim to deliver a simpler, more beautiful experience across all Google products, we’ve been working on a redesign for the AdWords interface. We are looking for feedback as we put the final touches on this visual refresh. Have a look at the preview and let us know what you think. You’ll find a feedback button on each page.
A more beautiful AdWords
This refresh aims to get the interface out of the way, so that the important things – such as your data – stand out. We integrated the latest client side technologies to make the AdWords interface more visually appealing and scalable.

A simpler AdWords
The design changes are also aimed at making campaign creation simpler. One example is the introduction of campaign types, which will determine the campaign settings that you see.
For example, if you're creating a Search Network campaign to place ads on Google search and search partners, you'll have the option of selecting a campaign type: either Standard, All features, or Product Listing Ads. If you select the Standard campaign type, you'd see only the most relevant settings to Search Network only campaigns, making you experience simpler and more efficient.
New Campaign Types
Whether you spend an hour a month or a few hours a day in AdWords, we hope you’ll find these changes intuitive and pleasant. Stay tuned for more details as we launch this new design soon. We welcome your feedback.
