Helvetica, and use all caps, do some bold colors or colors that contrast so much they "move" and geometry stuff

Run DMC's logo used Helvetica

Something like that, but I wouldnt use the condensed version. Do it [[http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&safe=active&client=firefox-a&rls=o...|RUN DMC]] style

You could use some [[http://images.google.com/images?q=trapper+keeper&oe=utf-8&rls=org.mozill...|trapper keeper]] designs for inspiration
