Mad Men and Blog Love

I’m a huge fan of the brilliantly written and directed Mad Men on AMC. (Mad is short for Madison Avenue.) I was just a pup in the 60s but am becoming quite enamored with the trends and style of that era through the show. My entire design career began in a similar advertising agency as the one on the show (sans the promiscuity,) and I can’t get enough of the fashion and props.So, in the spirit of the 60s, I created a fun graphic reminescent of Robert Indiana’s LOVE image. Feel free to use it on your blog (there’s also a little button below) or, even better, wear it! You can purchase BLOG apparel, accessories and stationery in my cafepress shop by clicking HERE.On a side note, if you’re interested in checking out Mad Men for the first time, I strongly recommend that you begin with the very first show of Season 1 through your favorite movie rental source. The show is currently in season 3 and you’ve got some serious catching up to do to get the most out of it.

    I have been watching Mad Men since season 1 and I can't get enough. I rent the older seasons through netflix in the summer because I miss it when it's not on.

    I LOVE the blog logo, thanks for sharing it with us.

    Mad Man is my favorite show. You are so right, it is intelligent and thought provoking & it so brings back all my childhood memories of the 60s living in LA. Love that Logo.

    My only complaint about MadMen is there just isn't enough of it! Oh my, the clothes! The decadence! Love that you've been inspired by it – I wish you more MadMen inspiration….

    Great image…I just might have to use it…and I think the t-shirts will sell like crazy!

    Mad Men has found a strange and lovely space between nostalgia and political correctness and filled it with interesting people, all of them armed with great powers of seduction.I like all the seasons.Yes i agree this t-shirt will be a great hit. I order my Suits, shirts and t-shirts online.I will try this one as well.

    Hi Cathe – I featured this on today. Nice work. I've always liked the Indiana original and I love your take on it. Cheers.

    Great idea!

    I LOVE Mad Men! Who doesn't? I've seen all the shows and lived a lot of it. My favorite thing to do while watching? Pick out the props that are not true to the timeframe. My first score? The IBM Selectric typewriters, which weren't invented until the 70's! Oh, and pantyhose…

    I love your new blog button and thank you once again for your generosity. Fantastic inspiration every post!
