Now Panic and Freak Out

This poster was created by Olly Moss in opposition to the popular Keep Calm and Carry On Posters that have been on the rise. Threadless printed 250 copies but sadly they are sold out. (Re-print anyone?! ) Personally, I do not like the original poster. The overly sensitive tone scares me… so I was happy to find this new version! The original poster was a piece of British propoganda created during the 1930’s as the war with Germany was looming. The history of this poster makes it that more creepy that it is now posted in American households everywhere. Either way, its interesting to see basic typographic posters becoming an important part of interior design. Graphic Designers unite!
