i have some ideas how you could center a logo in a more efficient way... but i fear that i could not fully get what you are trying to do.

however, here some hints:
- work with the columns in the guides manager instead of single guides or
- create a grid with the columns and the rows in the guides manager or
- draw a rectangle which spans from one guide to the other and then use align and distribute to align the logo to that rectangle.
