Putting up a website to post updates about the disaster and photos etc.
The LOGO should be single color unless the use of color adds meaningful visual energy...
Everyone who cares about what is happening in the gulf and wants to help with a information or to vent about the disaster, update when Oil is hitting their coast line or beach front property and post their video or photos.
Logo should be gentle,attractive - not too busy - political overtones are OK - being a little harsh on BP also OK - but be careful using their logo - I don' t need a lawsuite and I don't think you need to tread that close to them to meet our objective.
Focus on creating a logo which will help the cause of restoration and protection and not pointing the finger - there will be plenty of time to point the finger...
This geologic formation really has a great name - you can use these names without recourse from BP.
Deep Water Horizon Disaster (the facility that failed was BP's Deep Water Horizon facility).
Mississippi Canyon 252 - that is the name of the formation they were drilling in - you can use Mississippi Canyon Disaster - or some combination of the two.
I don't necessarily want to degredate BP - they are only partly responsible. They were still given the right to drill by our US Government. Their engineers knew they only had the technology to drill and not repair - I suspect the company knew too as well as the US Gov't.
