the writing’s on the wall

Now, I understand that the ‘Keep Calm & Carry On’ prints may have had their time in the limelight. Saying that though, mine is still proudly on display in my kitchen (it continues to give me a daily boost), and you just have to glance across to the left for one of the alternative messages. Although one of my favourite online stores goes by the name ‘The Keep Calm Gallery’, it is so much more than variations on a theme. The site features a number of poster designs, greetings cards and tea towels, all adorned with nostalgic and heartfelt typography, as well as charmingly British illustrations. The brains behind this flourishing business are couple Lucas Lepola and Hayley Thwaites (recently married and currently on honeymoon – congrats!); their venture was launched in university halls and over three years later the combination of their design and business backgrounds and their immense dedication has proved to be a winning formula. Here are my favourite pieces in their collection:
