I recommend Jeremy from www.intrelix.com or Sam from www.anticdesigns.com . I've used both of them, and they're both great designers. Your budget is fairly reasonable, so you should have plenty of success with either guy.
Note, this is a personal recommendation, and not a professional WHT sanctioned recommendation.

I would personally like you to recommend GlobalHostStaff for having your project. I am having some personal experiences with them over some of our project for out clients and they performed over all the project in a very impressive manner.
They are having some really experienced design team which is able to work as per your convinience.
