Produced a set of keep calm images based on the general sentiment suggested from the personal accounts I have read on the internet. Also given the fact that the Keep Calm and Carry on Image actually came from a world war 2 propaganda poster that never made it to press.

I then had the phrases that I had used translated into welsh.

I created the following images in Affinity Photo, a new piece of software bought for me by my husband.

After I had created these images, I then made the text appear a bit more ambiguous.

I then had the text translated into welsh and produced the welsh version of the images.
