Meaning and history

BHP Logo history

The BHP visual identity is laconic and minimalist. Based on the simple letterforms and just one bright color it looks professional and powerful.

The sans serif typeface of all the capital letters has thick straight lines and traditional cut angles. The nameplate is perfectly balanced and the letters are refined and look strong and neat.

The bright orange color of the BHP visual identity was inherited from the previous version of the company’s logo when it had the name BHPBilliton. The old logo was composed of all the lowercase wordmark with a meaningful abstract emblem.
