Make Better Mistakes Tomorrow


Back in 1939 the British government created a series of public-service posters designed to bolster its citizens in the face of World War II. One of them, a simple red design that read “Keep Calm and Carry On,” has resurfaced everywhere lately, undoubtedly as much for psychological as well as aesthetic reasons. But we’re getting kind of sick of seeing it, and let’s face it, the rationality — the whole “keep a stiff upper lip lie back and think of England” affect — it’s not really “us.” San Francisco artist Mike Monteiro’s poster, above, is a lot more pertinent to this particular moment, we think. Have a great weekend, everyone. [20x200]
