“Keep Calm and Carry On” was a motivational poster produced by the British government in 1939 in preparation for the Second World War. The poster was intended to raise the morale of the British public, threatened with widely predicted mass air attacks on major cities. Although 2.45 million copies were printed at the time, and although the Blitz actually happened, the poster was never publicly displayed. Little was known about it until a copy resurfaced in 2000.

“The message still feels relevant to me! I applied it in my previous life as a lawyer. And I’m applying it today as an artist…”
