Keep in mind that there is more to this than a website design (though it is important). The "content strategy" part of it often gets swallowed. There is a big difference between a site that has lorem ipsum text and one that really resonates because the right content is in the right places. IMO, that's what a designer can help you achieve that buying an off the shelf site cannot. it's reasonable to start with an off the shelf design (likely an open source or CC design), but you'll still need someone to drive the overall project, and setup a workflow for maintaining it. As I've said often w/ the Arquillian site, the website is part of the source code of the project.

That's a pretty good idea, there are some nice (and cheap) design out there.
We still have the styling issue though (we're supposed to use the header etc), what are we going to do with that?
