We love the Keep Calm and carry on app.

We are loving the new Keep Calm app, where you can make your own Keep Calm poster. I'm sure you have seen the Keep Calm and Carry On posters, cushions, mugs, magnets etc they have been around for a while, and different versions can now openly be found.

I love the simple graphics and strong message.

Keep Calm on Carry On was a poster designed in 1939 by the British Ministry of Information. It was intended to send a message to the citizens or Britain in time of war, to steel their resolve and boost their morale.

While similar poster were to be found all over the country during World War II, the Keep Calm and Carry On poster was never actually put into use.

However, it was rediscovered in 2000 at at second hand book shop in Alnwick, Northumberland, England called Barter Books. Since the copyright on works created by the British government expires after 50 years, the poster was now in the public domain.

You can now create you own quick and easy using the Keep Calm App. available from the Apple App store.
