As you eagerly await the premiere of the seventh and final season of "Mad Men," take solace in the little teasers that AMC has been doling out.
The final season's first trailer debuted on Thursday, March 6, but the 15-second clip of Don Draper descending an airplane staircase didn't give us much information in terms of what to expect from the upcoming episodes. Now, AMC has released the official poster art for Season 7, and it perfectly celebrates the advertising industry.
AMC enlisted graphic designer Milton Glaser for the project. The 84-year-old artist was, at one time, a member of the advertising community that the show depicts.
"Mad Men" creator Matthew Weiner tells The New York Times that he essentially gave Glaser free reign for the design, trusting his judgement. Weiner had only a few broad requests. He reportedly made it known that he generally wanted something “a little furry,” “kind of Luddite” and “as strange as it might sound, something with flowers.”
What does the artwork say about the impending final season? You'll have to wait for the April 13 premiere to find out.
