A Farewell to Mad Men

A Farewell to Mad Men

Very few shows have held such niche appeal to career creatives as AMC’s Mad Men. Its visual style, creative subject matter and unforgettable characters have left an undeniable impression on the world, especially us designers. Now that it has concluded, the gang sits down to discuss all things Mad Men: from Saul Bass’ iconic credits sequence, to the decor, fashion, drinking at work, the characters, and real-world branding and design featured in the show.

But be warned, this episode does contain plot spoilers. So if you aren’t caught up, you might want to make a date with Netflix, and save it for a future date.

After that, we answer a new listener question about resumes… specifically, how long is too long?

Hey guys, I have to say, I never heard about this show until you guys put out this podcast. Was so curious that stop the podcast and started watching…..OMG, I haven’t been able to stop, I’m on season 6 already, what a brilliant show.

Not sure if you guys missed this, but on the first episodes, on of the phone girls is the girl from the Progressive Insurance ads. Did not recognized it at first, but yes, it was her. I little cameo, but was kind of funny.
