I am a fan of commercial art and general britishness but I must say that I have developed a strong dislike to Keep Calm and Carry On as a graphic device on (it seems) nearly everything. At the risk of sounding like a design snob, who cares: Have an original thought people. There are hundreds of young artists out there: Go to Artspace and buy a multiple or better still a gallery opening and buy an original work on paper. I can assure you that Keep Calm and Carry On will not appreciate in value. It is the new Fido Dido. The tipping point has come and gone so stop being calm and definitely move on.
