From the global financial crash and the Arab Spring, to ISIS, Brexit and Trump, there has been a lot to document in the last decade. And graphic design has played a pivotal role in the dissemination of information – and the protest against it. Head to the Design Museum’s dynamic exhibition and explore over 160 objects and installations covering three main sections: power, protest and personality. Journey through Occupy Wall Street, Hong Kong’s Umbrella Revolution and the streets of Sao Paulo to discover the role of visual impact of our changing times. Alongside traditional posters and banners, ‘Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008-18′ charts the rise of digital media and social networking, which have given graphic iconography an extraordinary new reach. The perfect outing for meme-lovers and political poster fiends. By Megan Carnegie
