Mad Men Yourself

The social media marketing smash for AMC’s Emmy-winning best drama.

For the third season of AMC’s Emmy and Golden Globe winning drama Mad Men, my team at Deep Focus and I were tasked to come up with a digital execution that would give passionate fans of the show something to dig into while broadcasting their excitement to a broader audience.

That solution was Mad Men Yourself, an avatar creator that was the viral hit of the summer. Illustrator and Mad Men superfan Dyna Moe provided the character looks, and my team created an immersive experience that has been visited millions of times, generated tons of fantastic press, and led to great premiere night numbers for AMC’s fantastic 60’s advertising drama.
