Greenpeace Contest to Redesign BP's Logo
“Greenpeace is entreating all designers, professional and otherwise, to ‘design a new logo that’s more suitable to [BP's] dirty business,’ the organization writes on its Web site. The contest is actually pegged to BP’s investment in oil extraction from Canadian sand pits, a process said to produce four times as much CO2 as conventional drilling, though entrants are free to find inspiration in any of BP’s unseemly activities. The winning design will be featured in Greenpeace’s anti-BP campaigns. Submissions will be accepted through June 28.”
Meanwhile BP has pledged $25 million to the state of Florida that are open for summer-time fun.
