Maybe YOU have a great idea for BP’s new logo?

Greenpeace has launched a campaign to give British Petroleum a new logo. Isn’t that thoughtful? I mean, BP already has a logo that’s pretty and sparkly and green and kind of like a flower but also like the sun — maybe a sunflower? — but given the GIANT OIL SLICK that’s begun washing ashore here in Louisiana, Greenpeace thought BP could use something richer and more earthtoned and, you know, gross. It’s kind of like back in the 90s when everyone was revamping logos for t-shirts, except this time Greenpeace will make money from it.

Below, you’ll see the ad that appeared in yesterday’s Guardian to announce the campaign, and here’s a link to Greenpeace’s spiffy website, where you can see all the latest entries — and submit your own.

Good luck, graphic designers. When you have a second, maybe you could send down some Dawn dishwashing liquid and a sponge?

    Since Climategate began many environmental organizatoins started

    looking for a new cause to disassociate themselves from Global Warming/Climate Change.

    Be careful.

    Hey Fisherman!

    Put the female crabs back to hold the resource, also, their keys

    allow for oil to to get in.

    The males crabs have extremely tight keys and taste great!!

    I know how to plug the hole.

    If we use an extremely large ange long hydraulic

    tampon don’t forget the rope or cable to pull and we’ll need to push

    enough at the same time.
