The Scrapes is a fictional team created for a contest held by TheClinkRoom.com. The theme for the contest was "The Skate Shop League." Designers were tasked with creating a logo for a fictional team that was a member of this league. The design brief called for the team to relate to skateboarding in some way, shape, or form. I choose to create the Scrapes. The idea behind the Scrapes was that no matter how good a skateboarder is, at some point they are going to fall and scrape up their body. Originally I created an "S" out of band-aids but later refined it to the X that you currently see. The next round of revisions is where I added the blood drips. The color of the hat was chosen by the guys at the Clink Room to represent the denim that most people wear when they skate.
