Mad Men



It’s begun. The build up to the much anticipated sixth season of  Mad Men is in full force after the return date of April 7th was announced.

What has become of our favourite characters? Who’s with who? What year is it? (apparently there is a jump in time to 1969). Will it still be ‘Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce’ after the demise of Lane Pryce (played by the marvelous Jared Harris)?

Speculation will be rife over the next few months especially after these ridiculously gorgeous new promo shots were released.

I’m counting the days…

I’m missing Mad Men so much! Are you!? I cannot wait for it to be gracing our screens again. I wonder if there is a therapy group for withdrawal?…

Anyhoo, I’ve wanted to create a Mad Man inspired print for a while now and here it is. It’s available as a print at the moment but will soon be available as a 50cm x 70cm poster in my Etsy shop Yumalum. It can also vbe viewed/framed either way up.

I took the photographs of the Chrysler Building and The Empire State Building used in the design when we were last in New York. We may be going again in May…

…I’ve just bought this fantastic Mad Men inspired poster which is a collaboration between Print Mafia and Hero Design Studio.

It is the second print in their ongoing Mad Men series and is a tribute to episode six of season two called “Maidenform”. The poster is a two colour silkscreen and is 16″ x 20″. It can be hung either way up to reflect your inner Marilyn or Jackie.

The poster cost $25 and each one is signed and numbered but be quick because there are only 150 available!

I think I may be a Marilyn…which one are you?

..whilst watching a recent episode of Mad Men (loving the new offices BTW!) I suddenly shouted to David (he was lounging on the sofa next to me) that there was a Helvetica poster in the background. I was ridiculously excited and David tried his best to look and sound interested.

Well Swiss Dots has produced a limited edition screenprint inspired by a 1960’s promotional poster for the film “Helvetica“. It is screenprinted by hand on archival 300gsm paper, A2 size in a numbered edition of 100 copies and each one is signed by the director Gary Hustwit. They are available to order here while stocks last at $150. I am so tempted…
