I'd actually like him to do the work and I'm not adverse to the logo redesign either I'd just want him to do a better theme for the wordpress website which technically shouldn't be that difficult. TBH for the Logo and the theme I think £350 - £400 is a fair price but I need to speak with the partners and then go back and beat him down on his £1,200.00 price. :-)
