(2) most other ads in the medium will be picture-window or at least heavily picture-oriented, so a gray, quiet, copy-heavy approach makes a good change of pace. Because copy-heavy advertising takes itself rather more seriously than other advertising its usually content formal balance.

More popular than Mondrian and especially suited to magazines and newspaper ad is the format known picture window layout.its just generous display of picture and tight editing of copy so it will fit the small space remaining.
