okay, besides the taco Bell on 78, I don't really know anything about New Albany except for I know I've driven through it like a hundred times on the way to B'ham or Mobile the long way. Apparently, it was founded ion the river for saw and/or grist mills.

So what about incorporating the water wheel that powered the mill into the logo? So not forcing the river but adding something definitely river oriented and New Albany related.

I figure you'd have to set the wheel at a 3/4 angle other wise a profile would just look like a steering wheel or something.

Something like the attached (although, meh but you get the idea I'm having (psst, real hack job )).

Hate the one with the keg.
Like the water wheel the best.

Says river, without being too obvious.

I think you have me sold on the waterwheel! That looks amazing and I def think I'm gonna roll with that. Where did you find the waterwheel image? Also, what was the second font you used?

lol,

not a good image but I thought something a little more hand drawn would look better as the main font you have is a handwriting style font.

the font is DIN Light True Type. Not a free one out there so... Been using it a lot on a project I'm working so when I opened Photoshop, that was just already open

Don't do it!

Sure, the clean, modern sans-serif is a little more readable than the slightly old-timey "second font" on your original logo, but the old-timey font seems to go better with script main font and the engraving-style illustrations.

My apologies, I had not realized they were the same font.

Maybe the barrel floating down the river?
Love that idea!

I like the latest waterwheel design. I'll echo the comments about the font though. It's difficult to read, but it's your call.
