I'm suprised it took this long for Mad Men to get some psychedelic key art, but I'm not surprised that it turned out this well. AMC could have had anybody make a trippy poster, but they instead went to Milton Glaser. Yes, Milton Glaser.
You may or may not know his name, but you know his work. He designed:
- The DC Comics Bullet Logo
- The "I Love New York" poster
- This legendary Bob Dylan poster:
- Oh, and he founded New York magazine.
So yeah, they went for a legend to design the poster for the final (first half anyway) season of the show.
I need this poster! I'm hoping it goes on sale soon - I love the contrast of the familiar, buttoned up Don Draper looking out at the swirls and madness of the psychedelic woman and her wine.
