Has anyone ever seen an Expos "logo" of Youppi? Obviously they've never had anything official but I'm wondering if there's anything in an old media guide, yearbook, program, etc. . Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. In my search so far, I found this button but that's about it.
I redesigned the Habs logo for an alternate jersey and instead of doing something based on their historic jerseys I decided to go super modern. The crest has 3 main parts. The very center is a Fleur De Lis in honor of their home province of Quebec (at the risk of drawing too much of a comparison to the Nordiques). I made it the center of an M for Montréal with the two “wings” on either side. I also separated the top part of the Fleur De Lis to make it the flame of a torch made from the bottom part, referencing the team motto “Nos bras meurtris vous tendent le flambeau, à vous toujours de le porter bien haut.” Or in English “To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.” The team’s hanger effect on their current jersey is the first part of that line, so I added the second part as this jersey’s hanger effect, completing the line of the poem and creating some vague symbolism of the classic jerseys passing the torch to this modern take. The chest and arm stripes were made thinner and modernized with the removal of the bottom white stripe and the addition of 24 ghosted Fleur De Lis on the chest, obviously representing the 24 cups they have won. I tried this jersey in blue at first, with the thought that there would then be a jersey in their arsenal for each color, “Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge”, but it kept looking either too much like a Rangers jersey or a Leafs jersey so I abandoned that idea and stuck with red. I know I will be labeled a heretic for messing with the Canadiens crest, but I thought it was a cool way to modernize the look of the oldest team in the league. Please C+C. Thanks in advance.
In what can only be described as the culmination of over a decade of poor management, utter moronic ideas, and a lack of planning, we find ourselves on the cusp of history. The first ever two country team in history. Montreal and Tampa Bay sharing the Rays. Sound like a terrible idea? Well, it is. A French speaking Canadian city and a English speaking city sharing a mediocre team that the vast majority of fans have long forgetten about. Nevermind the Expos having 35 years of history. I'm actually quite impressed with myself on this one. It's almost as if I've put more effort and thought in the last hour of designing than Stu Sternberg has put in the last several weeks. No idea what their name will be. No idea what the logo will be. No idea what they'll do for the playoffs. Haven't spoken to the city of Montreal or Tampa Bay. All of this being taken into consideration, I did exactly what you could do with this joke of a situation. Turned the terrible faux-back jersey for the Rays into an Expos jersey. I do look forward in the future to design a few more concepts, once the team decides San Juan should share in the fun, and then decides Sao Paulo deserves to share as well. The first ever Portugese/English/French/Spanish team ever. As in the words of the absolute mad man himself: "If you get two dollars there and one dollar here, you have three dollars"
I had a couple ideas...I brings them to you. Avant garde, in one of the few places where it would make perfect sense. The 70s-80s flying alouette figures pretty heavily into this uniform, as the helmet and pants stripe, and also separated to form the assymetrical elements of the jersey: the alouette is on the right sleeve, while the A becomes a sash over the left shoulder. The third also uses the old logo, this time blown up on the shoulders, with the alouette serving as a stylized shoulder stripe. The old Als script is placed beneath the front numbers. On all three jerseys, the early 70s bird head is placed on the back of the collar.
