The story of the famous KEEP CALM poster

The KEEP CALM posters have spiked ridiculously high on social media channels and blogs for the last couple of years, but actually they’ve been around since the Second World War. The firstKeep Calm poster was asking Londoners to keep calm because of the daily raids across the city.

The British Crown. Keep it or take it off

One of the main features of a KEEP CALM poster is the British Crown… but if you don’t like it,  don’t use it. Some other icon could be more relevant to your message.

Bannersnack allows you to add a customized icon, image or even logo.


Using the red background is not a must. So you can start fantasizing about adding any kind of images to match your message. Add anything from palm trees, sunny beaches to cityscapes – you’re going to get the most out of your Keep Calm poster.

Advertising campaigns

Last, but not least: the AT&T Keep Calm campaign. I have to admit it – this is the way we at Bannersnack want brands to communicate. Is it millennials’ language? Is it appealing? Is it brand representative? The answer is: Yes, Yes, Yes!
