Dublin-based graphic designer Eoin Conlon has reproduced a series of classic advertisements from the age of Mad Men for the modern day social media age. The cleverly adapted advertisements incorporate everything from Facebook, Twitter, online message boards and interactive smartphone advertisements into these social media savvy updates.

Entitled simply ‘The Second Coming: How Classic Ads Might Look Today,’ the revamped advertisements show just how much digital and social media has revolutionized the art of advertising.

Although the classic ads are sometimes more aesthetically pleasing, modern day advertising agencies and graphic designers are offered a huge range of choices on how they would like to interact with and engage their customers. Eoin Conlon is an award-winning graphic designer based in Dublin, Ireland, who’s Behance bio shows that he may also have a future as a comedian. Stats for Tech-Savvy Ad Remakes Trending: Older & Warm
