Matthew Weiner, Milton Glaser and Mad Men

March 11, 2014


In a perfect example of life imitating art, Matthew Weiner and Milton Glaser have teamed up to create the promotional posters for the new series of Mad Men. What a great opportunity to involve someone who actually had first hand experience of Madison Avenue on the late 60’s. Although it’s a bit predictable for a designer to love Mad Men, I can’t help it! I had heard all the hype and had to see what I was missing and was immediately hooked. As a female creative, in what is still quite a male dominated industry I’ve found it particularly interesting to watch Peggy Olsen’s rise from secretary to Don Draper’s left hand woman. So I’ve booked my place on the sofa with my ‘old fashioned cocktail’ as I eagerly await the return of series 7.
