“TRIPPY” MAD MEN poster by MILTON GLASER

Not sure how I feel about this poster… Glaser says he designed it by hand… but the end result looks ‘very computer’. It looks like a cliche student rough. But I really like how the MAD MEN text looks with those colors/shapes.The grey lines bug me a bit too… That gold AMC logo is shit… I prefer the simple black and white. We get it AMC… you’re award-winning.

    I’m totally with you. It looks like it was done using the Brushes iPad app. The grey outlines are what really catches your eye, which is not a good thing. Plus, the image looks much more 1920’s than 1960’s psychedelia (assuming that’s what Glaser was going for). Too bad; I like the idea but not the execution.

    Plus, that one tiny flower overlapping ‘MAD MEN’ is way too timid. It would’ve been terrific had it been much more overgrown. So there. 🙂
