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.

Section 508 (Website Accessibility)

Rick needed a site refresh in a bad way.  He also wanted to be able to update his website in house and needed to be found on Google.  His old site was somewhere around page 14 on Google and used bright, vibrant colors and, well, didn't work.  Logins that lead to nowhere.

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
