New Logo Idea

I'm still pretty happy with the existing Mostly Skateboarding logo but have been feeling the need for a square logo for places that need squares like Twitter. As with most of my personal projects I spent months just thinking about it then was inspired by this Rebranding of Rhyl and thought I could adapt the scroll to a square(ish) logo for Mostly Skateboarding.

I kept the green/black/white color scheme I've had for along time. The original logo is in Futura Medium, so I used an italics version of Futura to put the letters on an angle. My favorite part of the logo is using the O to make the shape of a skateboard deck, so I kept that in this new logo.

This second example is more square but the ends of the scroll seem a bit too small. Maybe I should not have the notch cut out of the end... It still needs some work. I tried stretching the word Skateboarding to make it take up more of the scroll, but that ended up looking wonky. If you have any suggestions please let me know in the comments. If you're interested, here is my previous entry about the evolution of the Mostly Skateboarding logo.
