To celebrate the long-awaited return of Mad Men this Sunday, Newsweek yesterday launched a special issue with a retro design.
The best part, for many lucky modern admen and adwomen, was the invitation to submit special '60s-style ads for the occasion.
Some are better than others. All must have been so much fun to do.
|Great integration with current campaign.|
|Maybe a little too authentic.|
|I don't quite buy it. The models are all wrong.|
|Retro design done right.|
|Looks like 1990s faux vintage.|
|The photo treatment could have been more authentic.|
|Dig the long copy.|
|Nicely done, with the Lyndon Johnson reference.|
|Too obvious for me.|
|Pretty authentic, but boring.|
|In the spirit, without being too silly.|
|Captures our idea of the time.|
|A true classic.|
|The SPAM must have gone bad to make that happen.|
|Much better trippy design.|
|Nice self-parody of their campaign.|
