AMC has released a new poster for season season of Mad Men, and it’s trippy.
The image at which Don Draper’s silhouette is gazing was created for the show by famed graphic designer Milton Glaser. You may recognize Glaser for his iconic “I ♥ NY” logo. Much of Glaser’s work defined the late 1960s, the time period in which Mad Men will end.
Series creator Matthew Weiner grew up with a poster of Glaser’s work in his home and had always dreamed of working with him. This new design was inspired by his famous 1966 Bob Dylan poster in which Dylan’s hair is replaced by multi-colored spirals.
But what does it mean? Weiner gave some clues to the New York Times:
Well, that’s not very helpful, though apparently the colorful poster doesn’t necessarily imply we’ll see more acid tripping on the show this season.
This week, we’ve found out that Don flies somewhere sunny and that he’s dreaming of wine and women.
More teasers are sure to come before the show premieres on April 13.
