Welcome

Websites are a professional necessity in today’s highly competitive virtual world. With just the click of a button, anyone can buy anything from anywhere. Information on is-fotan-rightliterally every subject is mere seconds away.

So how are you going to make sure your website comes out of the tangle on top? How do you ensure that what you have to offer is going to stand out in a crowded global marketplace?

In an era where the average person does the majority of their business with people (or non-people) they have never even met, I say the best way to move your business forward is to take a step back.

Fotan Web and Graphic Design offers a global reach with a personal touch. The problem with huge companies is that most aren’t able to resolve issues quickly (according to an iPage review). I believe in doing things the old-fashioned way–in knowing names, shaking hands, telling a few jokes and in truly listening. If you want your business to be a part of the future but like the way things were done in the past, please contact me. At the very least you’ll talk to a real person, and you might even make a new friend.

Morning Glory Inn was a bed and breakfast way out in the country near Roseburg.  Right on the Coos Bay Wagon Trail, actually.  You could sit on the porch and practically hear the horse drawn wagons going  by full of kids with cholera and stuff.  (Just kidding on the chol

Consumer Credit Counseling of Douglas County

| Portfolio

This is a site I did a long time ago.  Surprisingly, the design is still quite pleasing.  It's pretty simple.  Static text, no databases.  Couple little scripts to grab a random testimonial and display it on the right side.  Oh, and some downloadable forms and legal inf

Hire A Daughter - Eldercare

| Small Business

Hire A Daughter was  a cool idea an ex-eldercare provider had.  She had worked in memory care facilities and just didn't like the lack of attention she was able to give the residents.  She decided to go out on her own and do in-home visits and respite care.  Unfortunatel

Mercy is another client of BBG Marketing.  BBG has a designer they use for all the layout and pretty stuff.  What their designer can't do well is the PHP and MySQL integration.  There's really not that much on mercyrose.org as far as database stuff, but they have the abil
