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.

Sessions in custom WordPress applications

Hire A Daughter - Eldercare

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

All Oregon Real Estate

| Real Estate and Property Management

This was a kind of cool site because it had so much design work associated with it.  The broker wanted some largish (I say largish because, at the time they were big, but these days they're pretty small) as a backdrop for the whole site.  All in all, not a big deal, but in

This is actually the second version of this website.  When I did the first, they didn't have much budget and didn't really know how much they would use their website.  They asked for a pretty static site and, to be honest, WordPress hadn't really become a functional Conten
