Where's the shark?

i thought exactly the same - a completely wasted opportunity. baffling.

The should have had Bob Peak illustrate it.

Once he gets out of the tub.

why isn't the type illustrated? it's jarring.

I think it's helvetica.

Bob Peak passed away in 1992!

The should have offered him more money to do it.

That's no excuse for missing a deadline!

I think Weiner is referring to an entire style of 60s illustration which includes the likes of David Klein especially. The Kubrick connection is friggin genius though. If he was good enough for Stanley K. he's good enough for any TV key art.

Style over substance. Just like the show itself!

To declare that Mad Men is "style over substance" demonstrates utter ignorance of both style and substance.

We're not alone with that view... http://tinyurl.com/a9e6kcx

But STILL - the fact remains - that as regards the initial ad goes it does not keep-in with the artwork type featured in the Mad Men series or of that associated most strongly with the era .

We're betting the answer is a less that pretentious, "no". The ideograms are a public service.

Jay, everything on this site is thrown down free for the people. You are not allowed to buy advertising with or without one of our quaint little pictograms.

4/7/13. We rest our case. What a snoozefest!! Who stole the paprika? A better question is who stole my 2 hours?!

I love Island Mac n cheese
