The Design Museum’s latest exhibition, Hope to Nope, tracks the relationship between graphic design and politics from 2008 to 2018.

Divided into three sections, Power, Protest and Personality, the exhibition demonstrates how each of these 3Ps has been abused, expressed and utilised by the political establishment, the media and grassroots movements through a vivid mix of posters, social media posts, video and much more.

From the hilarious Donald Trump-themed fortune teller machine to the sobering infographics depicting the trajectory of social media’s influence, or the right-wing memes that have gone viral, this exhibition is full of content that anyone living through the last decade can enjoy and relate to.

We really loved Hope to Nope, not only is it visually stimulating, it’s full of interesting facts about the last ten years and is a moving trip down memory lane! Make sure you see it! It’s on until 12th August.
