Logos from the Greenpeace contest


The U.K. arm of the environmental group Greenpeace started a logo redesign contest for BP in the wake of the company’s massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The results? Predictably passive aggressive.The contest stems from a Greenpeace takeover of the logo hanging from the facade of BP’s London headquarters last week.


In the aftermath, BP asked the Web to come up with a better logo for the oil giants, one that, uh, better reflects the company’s current image. Users have uploaded nearly 300 to the official Flickr account for the contest, most of which include BP’s sunny green logo doused in a thick layer of crude.

Here’s a slideshow of the proposed redesigns.
