Round Rock Finds A New Way To Express Itself

The new logo train keeps right on a rollin’ — and this time the train’s running Express.

The Round Rock Express, who are entering their first season as a Texas Rangers affiliate after 11 years with Houston, unveiled new logos today. Those who have been following my logo-related blog posts over the past month should be able to tell that this is a Studio Simon creation all the way:

The above mark is the primary one, incorporating a cattle catcher and the Texas State flag. The team also notes that there will be new secondary marks, new colors and new uniforms. While blue and red continue as the Express colors, they now are in line with the Texas Rangers colors; the blue is a brighter royal blue, while the red remains unchanged. The new marks incorporate traditional Express elements, including a “train” theme and the Texas flag. The interlocking R logo remains as is save color alteration.

Here’s the “interlocking R logo”, alteRRed:


The “E-Train” cap logo, described by the club as a metallic E concaved upward with a cattle catcher at the bottom.


And, finally, the home and road unis as modeled by the eyeless four-armed men we’ve all come to know and love:



So what do you think of this one? Soldier through your new logo fatigue, and let me know.
