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.

 

TESTIMONIAL

I would like to take this opportunity to express how thrilled I am with the custom website that Fotan Web and Graphic Design builtRead More...

HTTP / HTTPS fix for WordPress

| WordPress Plugins

***UPDATE***So, one of those pesky LaneCC blog network users had a problem with a syndicated blog post that included an iframe embedded YouTube video losing the HTTPS today.  I looked into it and found an additional filter to add to the plugin, so we're up to v1.1.  Woo Ho

| DQP

In my new day job, I came across a problem today that I had never seen.  The application I'm working on requires an inordinate amount of JavaScript (in the form of jQuery).  Basically I'm display large amounts of data from a database in a graphical form using jQuery Spider

Waterstone Crossing

| Real Estate and Property Management

This was a website done for a single property.  Not that unusual these days, but back in 2005, it was almost unheard of.  Jennifer Cramer with Prudential here in Roseburg came to me when her client, Bill Woods, expressed an interest in thinking outside the box a bit.  We

Total Archive

| WordPress Plugins

This is my first plugin. Pretty simple really. I needed something that would allow one of my clients to create an archive of their whole WP site and database, then download it so it didn't take up a bunch of space on my server. A few things to keep in mind. I wrote this for

American Home Lending

| Portfolio

This was my first PHP-based site.  Took me days and days to do what I can do in about 5 minutes now.  Gotta learn somewhere though, right?  The design is horribly dated by today's standards, but back in 2003, or so, it was quite nice.  The PHP included a small database t

Charlie makes awesome Arts and Crafts style doors!  What Charlie doesn't do is make websites.  He needed someplace to point people from print ads he places in trade magazines.  The first thing he did was contact Gary Leif with Leif Photography here in Roseburg.  Once he

Century 21 The Neil Company Real Estate

| Self-Managed Websites

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

Hire-a-Daughter.us

| Portfolio

Hire a Daughter was a company that specialized in helping the elderly or home-bound.  They needed a site that was basically passive marketing, just to have someplace to point potential clients to so they could get some more information.  That’s what I gave them. The des

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

Illahee Ranch

| Real Estate and Property Management

This is a second single property website for Jennifer Cramer with Prudential Roseburg and Bill Woods.  Bill wanted to be able to showcase the beauty and privacy of his property.  What better way than with a custom website and a photo gallery?
