I would like to kindly request the help of some of you creative, artsy people. My scooter clubs name is S.C.U.M. (Scooter Consortium of Unabated Mayhem), and we cannot come up with a logo. We are just not that creative. Any help will be appreciated. Any pictures or ideas can be sent to valdjn@msn.com.
Thank in advance for any help / advice.

The name is so great that I think it could live purely as a font treatment. You wouldn't need a "logo".

S.C.U.M.

Reminds me of something from the "Man from UNCLE".

Showing my age now.

I think Steve is right. No need for a logo, just a font.

Okay, probably not exactly what you were looking for... spent all of 5 minutes noodling in PhotoShop and came up with... well... initials.

My suggestion? Do something folksy.

Find an old car sitting out in a pasture field (with an old barn or cows in the background and surrounded by weeds, preferably in spring when everything is in full bloom) and make sure that the windshield and car is very scummy. Then write S.C.U.M. on the windshield, snap pic, and now you have your logo!

Why a car for a scooter club; how about an old skanky prostitute, like 60, smoking a cigarette with torn panty hose, a broken heel and nasty teeth and hair, too much make-up with the caption SCUM! Coming to a neighborhood near you!

I think including any image with this marvelous word just ropbs the viewer of the chance to image connections.

When I think "SCUM" so many wonderful things come to mind...

Why a car for a scooter club? In a subliminal way, displaying the car with the words SCUM written on it denotes a better way of transportation, that being riding a scooter, than driving a scummy car. Get it?

Gee let me think. 2005 4 Runner? SKUM? NOPE! 2002 Corvette Convertible? SKUM? NOPE! I love my cars and my scooter! I don't get it man! Some Scooter riders like cars too! WIth that said, I'd imagine some scooter riders like prostitutes also! So we both has lousy ideas!
