Block based pricing model

At Cean Herz Design, I understand that every project is unique, and my goal is to provide you with the best possible experience while ensuring that my pricing is transparent and tailored to your needs. That's why I'm introducing my new block-based pricing model, designed with your convenience and budget in mind.

Under 10 Hours:

A very flexible option for customers who only need a few hours. You simply pay for the hours you need or have been used up to 9 hours.

Transparent Billing: I believe in full transparency. Rest assured that I clock all of my time diligently, and a detailed timesheet will always be provided along with your invoice.

Flexible Collaboration: My block-based pricing offers flexibility and allows you to use your hours as needed, providing you with cost-effective solutions for your web design needs.

Client-Centric Approach: I prioritize your satisfaction and am committed to delivering exceptional results for every project.

Unused Hours: If there are any hours left over in your block after the project's completion, rest assured that I won't charge for them. These unused hours can also be carried forward and used for ongoing tasks like website maintenance, updates, or any additional design work you may need in the future.

How many hours will my project need?

A projects have different requirements and it can be quite a challenge to figure out exactly how many hours any project will need however, based on all of my past work I can provide the following estimates.


This would be a single page brochure site to a small site with around 5 pages and some bespoke design elements.

Estimate: 20 - 40 hours


This would be a multi page site between 5 - 10 pages with bespoke design elements, some extra features and functionality.

Estimate: 40 - 80 hours


This would be a large complicated site with many pages and a lot of bespoke design and functionality.

Estimate: 80 - 100 hours +

Projects can also be broken up into "phases" which suits the block based pricing model very well. Phase 1 will be the essential core information for your business and further information can be added as part of phase 2. All websites are a work in progress as they should be updated regularly.

Detailed quotation fixed rate

With this option you can request a personalized quote based on your specific project requirements. Note: Block based discounts do not apply to this pricing model and hours worked will be charged at full price. For me to provide a detailed and accurate quotation please provide the following information:

Please provide a detailed sitemap showing top level primary pages and sub pages. This will also be used to create the menu structure.

  • Design Preferences: Do you have design preferences or branding guidelines? Sharing logos, color schemes, or design inspirations would be helpful. If you need a new logo or wish to redesign an existing one, please let me know, as I can assist with logo creation to ensure it aligns seamlessly with your website's design and overall brand identity.
