Life imitating art April 5, 2009

Over the past week I’ve seen perhaps half a dozen big posters up around here encouraging you talk to your local police about what matters to you crime prevention-wise.

There are plenty of government-run ad campaigns doing the rounds at any one time, but this one caught my eye because they are using the artwork of the ‘keep calm and carry on’ posters – together with a certain tone of voice that sounds like it comes from times past.

You can see an animated version that scrolls through some of the variations on this page.
