A short film that tells the story behind the Keep Calm and Carry On poster. Its origins at the beginning of WWII and its rediscovery in a bookshop in England in 2000, becoming one of the iconic images of the 21st century.Barter Books, the store where the poster was found, has also put out a Keep Calm and Carry On iPhone app so you can easily make your own version of the Keep Calm poster.
If you're a graphic designer, you might be interested to know that the font used was hand drawn by an anonymous designer. Back in the Mad Men days of copywriting and design (read: before computers) it was actually easier to hand draw type. However, someone has gone through the trouble of reverse engineering the font, so you can now buy the Keep Calm and Carry On font.
