Aside from some beautiful shots of the cast off-camera, Rolling Stone's coverage of Mad Men also caught some delightful moments capturing the contrast between life in 2010 and 1965. Enjoy.
Don Draper (Jon Hamm) checks his iPhone 4.
Roger Sterling (John Slattery) looking more suited for Brooklyn than Madison Ave.
Kenny Cosgrove (Aaron Stanton) and Harry Crane (Rich Sommer) perhaps admiring the new iTunes 10 on a MacBook Pro.
Given Mad Men is so well-respected for its attention to period detail (i.e. the Helvetica poster we all saw in the new creative lounge at SCDP early this season) I find this even more entertaining and jarring in their mid-century environs.
Willem Van Lancker is a product designer (UX) at Google with a passion for ethnography, maps, data visualization, and producing delightful user experiences.
Willem came to Google from IDEO where he worked as a communication designer focusing on understanding business systems and organizations through visual communication. Previous to IDEO, Willem worked for Apple, where he designed user interfaces for products including iPhone and iPad, and adidas, where he created new brand identities for various major league sports teams respectively.
Willem is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) with a degree in Graphic Design. While at RISD, Willem teamed with a small group of Brown and RISD students to create A Better World by Design, a now-annual three-day conference encouraging social and environmental impact within educational policy. He also served as a researcher and core member for RISDâ€™s Strategic Plan, charting a new course for RISDâ€™s academic programs and student life initiatives focused on how students of different disciplines can innovate through collaboration.
When he is not working on new innovations for Google, Willem can be found writing, sailing, playing squash (both the sport and the gourd), following English (and American) football, and occasionally regretting the decision to eat that bacon-wrapped hotdog from a food-cart in the Mission District.
