Mad Men aims to go out in the period style to which its viewers have become accustomed. The creators of the meticulously Mid-Century-detailed show have enlisted the help of the exalted graphic designer Milton Glaser in creating a poster to advertise Mad Men’s final season. Glaser, of course, is a design god whose most famous creation remains a 1966 poster of you-know-who, that other cultural icon–echoes of which are evident in the flowery psychedelic swirls and instantly recognizable silhouette in this 2014 composition. Still groovy after all these years.
