Keep calm and carry on

You’ve seen this before right? It looks oddly familiar? Well I bet you thought this statement was just pop culture doing what it does best but in actual fact there is some history behind this – read more here. Basically during the second World War the British government commissioned the Ministery of Information (which was responsible for publicity and propaganda) to design posters that would boost the morale of the country and its soldiers. It only some decades later in the year 2000 when these posters were rediscovered. Below are some of my favourites but there’s loads more on the internet.
