I'll take your header and make it all graphical and pretty. Since I'm too embarassed to charge for a single header (they're just too easy) I'll also provide the same style throughout your site, up to two dozen page logos.
When you want more than just pretty text, something iconic and memorable. From discussions about what you're trying to convey I will generate six substantially different logo designs. Pick the one you like best, then make recommendations for how to tweak it to make it even better.
Like a designed logo, except that it is animated in Flash. Though Flash animation is low-bandwidth compared to most every other form of animation, you should recognize that if your site is being visited by thousands of people, the bandwidth requirements of an animated logo, multiplied by those unending hordes of visitors, may well drive up the cost of your hosting.
