The “Keep Calm & Carry On” posters were created by the British government during the World War 2 in order to boost the morale of the British public. The British government knew that Germany was going to engage in massive air attacks on British cities, so they figured that these posters will keep the public calm through the adversities. Nobody can say if these posters really worked, but you can create your own Keep Calm posters to print them or keep them on your computer or mobile phones. These posters may be helpful in boosting your own morale when you are feeling a little down.
If you want to create the Keep Calm posters, then you can use the Adobe Photoshop, GIMP or even MS Paint (because the design is pretty simple). At the top of the poster you have put an iconic image like the British crown. Below this image, you can type in “KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON” in Arial bold font. The dimensions of the poster can be of your choice, but the ratio of width to height should always be 2:3.
Another way to create these posters is by visiting the KeepCalm-o-Matic website. The website has online web app that can help you design your poster in seconds. You have to type in the lines of the message, choose an icon image, background and foreground colors as well as the text font. You can also select the font size and image dimensions. After this you can click on the Generate my poster button to create the Keep Calm poster and download it.
The KeepCalm-o-Matic website also hosts a gallery of all the posters designed by visitors. You can browse these posters and possibly get inspired by their designs. There is “happening now” section on the website which displays the latest posters being created by people.
So if you want to design your own Keep Calm posters for your room, car or just about anywhere you want to post them, then you can use either an image editor like the Photoshop or visit the KeepCalm-o-Matic website web app. Both ways you should end up with inspiring, motivating posters that can boost your spirits every day.
