Now, on a creative and inspiration note, let me show you some great ways you could make your poster. For the last few years they have spiked ridiculously high on social media channels and blog posts… but they’ve been around since the Second World War. The first Keep Calm poster was actually asking London inhabitants to keep calm because of the daily raids they’ve been experiencing.

The CLASSIC Keep Calm Poster

As mentioned above, the first Keep Calm posters have appeared in 1941 with a complete different meaning that we know nowadays. And you know what they say – back to basics to the Londoner poster and its first variations:

One of the main features of a KEEP CALM poster is the British Crown… but it is not necessarily to have it all over, when you can get creative? Multiple websites and image maker tools like Bannersnack allow you to have a customized icon, image or even logo. It is explanatory, gets your viewer in the mood and is also representative of what you want to tell about. You can get inspired from some of the examples I really like and get your creativity flow go over the roof:

No one have made that red background a must… so you can start fantasizing about adding any kind of images that would represent your message. From palms, beaches to fruits and any kind of image – you’re going to get the most of your Keep Calm poster:

Why not take it to the next level and make a Keep Calm poster about your favorite movie? The logo – check! The background – check! Always to get the best of it and to make it as much representative as possible.

Use the force, call Batman and then puf! Hakuna Matata!

Brands are important, but they get even more important in a Keep Calm poster, just like in these Nutella, Disney or Converse posters. Of course, they might not be coming from the marketing team of the above mentioned brands, but if someone loves Nutella as much as the person who did this poster, why don’t you show some love for the brand you like?

Advertising campaign

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

Oh, and the logo – Keep Calm is a trend that goes with anything, doesn’t change its meaning even when you add another logo.
