The last decade has been extremely charged with social, political and economic movements -- from Brexit and the election of Donald Trump to the Charlie Hebdo attacks and digital media anxiety, the London Design Museum launches a collection of relevant political illustrations from the last decade. Dubbed 'Hope to Nope,' the exhibition is an amalgam of the most iconic, radical and thought-provoking posters and banners.

The exhibition of political illustrations and slogans are meant to highlight the "role of graphic design and technology in influencing opinion, arousing debate and encouraging activism." The Design Museum will feature famous art pieces like Shepard Fairey's iconic Barack Obama 'Hope' poster, among other political illustrations that emphasize other pressing political moments.
