TV Symbolism Illustrations

The People of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce Get a 21st Century Remake

— April 12, 2013 — Pop Culture
It’s no secret that Mad Men will come to an abrupt unfortunate end soon, but with still a multitude of episodes to keep viewers entrenched in the happenings of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce, there’s still a flurry of graphical interpretations to be found on the web to keep fans of the series satisfied for a long time.

Shutterstock’s designers took objects that best represented the characters of the series and paired those with their 21st century equivalent that fans of the series would understand. Don Draper was usually accompanied by easels and papers, which he would carry around in his in his briefcase; his modern-day presentation tools would be the equivalent of cloud computing. Joan Harris’ notepad is her weapon for dominance and order, so it just only seems appropriate that an iPad would be her 21st century tool of reckoning.

With AMC’s series about to come to a close, entertaining quirks such as this would ease the feeling of loss of a beloved series.
