Shepard Fairey's iconic Barack Obama "Progress" poster has been named the winner of the international Brit Insurance Design Award, considered by some to be the Oscars of the design world.
The poster is one of the items in an exhibition in London celebrating the year in all areas of design from fashion to furniture and architecture to interactivity.
Other items on display at the Design Museum include a green-screen suit, the Black issue of Italian Vogue and a bicycle that filters water.
BBC News was given a look around some of the highlights of the exhibition by curator Nina Due.
