The original "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster was one of a series issued by the British government (Ministry of Information) in 1939 and was aimed at keeping up morale in the face of a possible invasion. It was distributed only in relatively limited numbers and, as such, did not really become well known until a surviving poster was rediscovered in a Northumberland bookshop in 2000.
Since its rediscovery the poster has inspired a range of creative designs and messages. With the Keep Calm app, you too can create your own twist on the classic war time design.
Keep Calm Creator rewrites the rules for creating dazzling new customised versions of the much-loved propaganda posters. Even though the design is a real classic, now's your chance to give it your own unique twist with your own images, icons and words. So you can chop the crown, rewrite the line and change the background. It's your poster, your rules!
Keep Calm, which has been developed by Bolser, can be downloaded from the Windows Phone Marketplace. The free version is ad supported and has a watermark across saved posters. The paid version (£0.79 / $0.99 / €0.99) is add-free, has no water marking and supports sharing the finished poster to social networks directly from the application.
