Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008 –18 Catalogue

£15.00

Quantity
‘Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008 –18’ shows how graphic design not only responds to political events, but can also challenge and even shape them. From 
the Great Recession of 2008, the Deepwater Horizon
BP oil spill and the terrorist attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, to the Brexit referendum
and the 2016 US presidential election that shocked
the world, ‘Hope to Nope’ explores the role of graphic design in one of the most politically turbulent decades
in recent history. As traditional media rubs shoulders with the hashtag
and the meme, the influence and impact of graphic design has never been greater or more international in its reach. North Korean propaganda, fake posts disseminated
by Russian troll farms, a human billboard campaign against sexual harassment in China and anti-Zuma rallies from South Africa reflect how graphic design gives voice to political hopes and fears around the world. Alongside interviews with celebrated graphic designer Milton Glaser and street artist Shepard Fairey, the international designers and artists featured in this book include: Rebecca Wright and Lucienne Roberts, as well as a interviews with celebrated graphic designers Milton Glaser and Shepard Fairey

These are explored through the eyes of the designers themselves and through a series of essays by renowned writers and thinkers The result captures the emotionally charged mood of the present and suggests that design is a way of looking at the world, and a way to change it
