No oil, no war?

Published 11th June 2010 - 6 comments - 3225 views -

I'm working in television and we broadcasting info about oil spill in Gulf of Mexico everyday. It's a big disaster, which touches each of us. Greenpeace started a campaign about BP’s invest into the Canadian tar sands, the dirtiest oil there currently is. But now, is asking the public to design a new logo for British Petroleum. They want you to rebrand them. Your brief is to create a logo for BP which shows that the company is not ‘beyond petroleum’ - they’re up to their necks in tar sands. For more information click here.

The winning logo will be used by us in innovative and exciting ways as part of our international campaign against the oil company.
We're after the best ideas and concept, not necessarily the slickest logo. So if you're not a professional designer don't worry. If you're the overall winner we're offering you a day with a top graphic designer to transform your idea into a final product.

Greenpeace climbers scaled on corporate headquarters in London and take their new logo on the flag.

I have doubt that it will help. It's good idea, but BP is a very very big corporation and with oil you can conquer the world. Oil is the reason for wars. Plastic is made from petroleum. So it's a disaster for us or for them? No oil, no war?
