Help me fix the montreal impact

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I've never really been a fan of the montreal impact crest. Find it overly complicated and not as strong as it could be. Was hoping to get your help in refining it and making it as strong as a city with its rich (albeit short) history deserves. I realize this is pretty rough still so I'd love as much input as possible. Trying for something simple yet powerful and keeping with their current colour scheme and general theme(aka fleur de lis)

here's my start.

I like it, but I'm not a fan of the font or the gray band covering the outline

Better than the first. I don't like how the letters are situated though. Not sure how much I like the font either.

Definitely an improvement though :)

Slightly different option. Not sure I'm sold on the font either. Might do some hunting... was hoping to find something legible but also sort of ornate looking. QZuhqzi.png


also, ignore the little errors for now, I see them, just general thoughts for now, thanks guys(and gals I suppose :P)

Hmmm...I think that's a bit of a downgrade. The fleur de lis needs to be kept in the middle in my opinion.

Haha :P I don't mind guys, it's a general term really.

Thanks guys. Yeah I'm torn because I like the diagonal text but I agree it looks better with the fleur de lis central and more prominent. I'll experiment. Any other thoughts? Trim? yay/nay? Thought about making the outline follow the trim a bit more(as in the center of the latest few) and possibly adding some sort of trim element to the bottom, it feels a bit empty to me at the moment. Anything else? Sorta trying to evoke the classic french like louis the whatever feel while still keeping it as simple as possible.

Agree with 1insaneguy, the font from the very first iteration on the latest iteration, and you're there.

What if the monogram wasn't arced? Because there are so few letters, and because the I is so skinny, the arcing looks awkward.

can easily try it whittier, although i think i did and opted for this, and thanks sportstar! started off pretty terribly but starting to get happy with it.

Also the arcing might look a bit off because I had to do it manually(M was way bigger than the I), so maybe I just wasn't quite OCD enough with it.
