The psychedelic sixties have reached Mad Men in this first poster for two-part season seven...

This April sees the first half of Mad Men's seventh and final season come to AMC and Sky Atlantic, with the remaining half airing in 2015.

US audiences have already been treated to a teaser promo for the new episodes (unavailable in the UK at the time of writing). It shows a sharp-suited Don Draper on an airstrip descending the steps of a plane. Does it signify a new beginning for the character? A return to the past? Whichever, it has us just where showrunner Matthew Weiner wants us when it comes to his critically acclaimed series: guessing.

The first poster for season seven is less ambiguous, marking as it does a drastic step taken from monochrome into late-sixties psychedelic technicolour.

When it comes to American graphic design, it doesn't get a great deal more iconic than the artist who came up with the ubiquitous 'I heart NY' logo. His name is Milton Glaser and he's he man Weiner hand-picked to design this take on Mad Men's classic opening credits image.
