For our review of 2018, design reporter Gunseli Yalcinkaya picks out 10 defining moments in graphic design, including Edel Rodriguez's depiction of Donald Trump, Kanye West's Kids See Ghosts album and the social-media response to the Pittsburgh shooting.
Swiss designer Yves Béhar created this graphic in response to the mass-shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue in October, to warn against rising anti-semitism in the US, which he blamed on president Donald Trump's "current culture of lies".
The San Francisco-based Fuseproject founder released four illustrations on his Twitter and Instagram accounts after the shooting at The Tree of Life synagogue.
The much-awaited release of Kanye West's Kids See Ghosts in June was hyped further with this psychedelic album artwork designed by Japanese artist Takashi Murakami.
The contemporary artist, who previously worked with West for the cover art for his 2007 Graduation album, looked to traditional Japanese watercolour landscapes when creating this fantastical artwork.
Cuban-American artist Edel Rodriguez designed this alternative cover for the tell-all book documenting Donald Trump's first nine months as US president, after the original was described as bland. It was so popular it spawned the Twitter hashtag #betterfireandfurycovers.
Rodriguez chose the colours of the flame to resemble the president's visage. The orange represents his tanned face and the yellow top mimics his blonde hair. An open mouth with bright white teeth is placed in the centre.
This year saw London-based designer Richard Baird launch a quarterly magazine to celebrate minimalist mid-century logos, which proved to be very popular amongst Dezeen readers.
Called LogoArchive, the publication accompanies the designer's popular Instagram account of the same name, which features over 1,000 examples of mid-century logo design.
This whimsical children's book by Japanese studio Nendo features an ordinary mug as its protagonist.
Titled What is a cup?, the book aims to explain how creative ideas are born. It follows the mug as it searches for its missing spoon and tries to solve the issue by changing itself into various different forms.
Merging the old and new, British artist David Hockney's stained-glass window designs for London's historic Westminister Abbey were made using his iPad.
Commemorating the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, the design depicts a vividly coloured pastoral scene, intended to reflect the Queen's "deep affection for and connection to the countryside".
Earlier this year, mysterious illustrations of electronic musician Aphex Twin's logo were spotted in locations across the world, ahead of the release of his new EP Collapse.
A prime example of guerilla marketing, fans took to social media to post photographs of the various sightings, furthering speculation of the album drop.
Perhaps the most controversial instance of rebranding this year, Hedi Slimane's decision to axe the accent on luxury brand Celine caused uproar among the fashion scene, who saw the move as attention-seeking and lazy.
For its 68th issue, Visionaire magazine asked artists and activists to create posters protesting on issues ranging from gun violence and criminal justice to climate change and equal voting rights.
Tilda Swinton, Nan Goldin and Vivienne Westwood were among 10 figures commissioned by the publication to design protest posters for readers to download and use for free.
The rebrand aims to present the charity "as both a compassionate caregiver and a leading authority in animal welfare", based around a "family" of hand-drawn, watercolour-style logos of different breeds of cats and dogs.
