21st Century Mad Men


Don Draper and his crew are very much products of their time, but what would happen if they had to update their methods to suit the modern day? We're not altogether sure they'd cope; what on earth would they make of the smoking ban for a start?

Designers at Shuttershock have taken a symbol from each of the main Mad Men characters' lives and replaced it with its modern-day equivalent in these brilliant images.

Somehow, the '60s paraphernalia is way cooler, isn't it? Give us a massive typewriter over a MacBook any day (not so good with the old email though).
