Mad Men ATC

Okay, has anyone else seen this FABULOUS show?!?! I had heard a lot about it, and our cable "on demand" has the first season available for free. So Brian and I started watching Sunday night - it's spectacular! It's sent in 1960 New York at an ad agency (the "Mad" being Madison Avenue) and the attention to detail is extraordinary.

 

I tried to recreate the graphics as best I could - I traced the silhouette on black paper, then added the white parts after. Then, I found some clip art skyscrapers and printed them on an adhesive transparency (I should've done this first!). I also chalked the background in light grey and added the vinyl letters. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery - then the design team that did this should be very flattered! :)
