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.

Winston Area Community Partnership

| Self-Managed Websites

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

Sadler Aircraft Blog

| WordPress Blogs

Sadler's website needed a way to be kept updated, but the original design was 100% Flash.  No good for quick, easy updates.  (I hate Flash, if I haven't mentioned that…)  A custom blog seemed like just the thing.  This was before WordPress was as easy as it is now.  C

I'm working on converting a website from plain-Jane to responsive and the website happens to have some videos.  That's all great and everything, except when you embed a YouTube, Vimeo... video or pretty much anything with an iFrame, like Facebook and Twitter embeds, they ar

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

All State Real Estate

All State Real Estate called me in a bit of a panic.  They had had two different local web guys work on a new design for their website.  Between the two, it had been almost a year.  Then, suddenly, their email was down and they couldn't search listings, or even show their

I took over development or The Neil Company in about 2005 or 2006.  Since then I've done 3 total redesigns.  Franchises like this are a challenge because you have to take the client's wishes for design and make it work within the legal constraints of the marketing guidelin
