A Web Developer Based in Santa Barbara
Peter Otte is the lead developer and creative director at Peter Otte Productions. We are based in Santa Barbara yet serve clients near and far. We’re a small shop with about seven personnel.
We like to work on sites that perform clever tasks and serve a useful purpose.
We like nurturing simple ideas that have the potential to grow into something truly useful.
Our specialty is PHP. We also have a preference for good design.
Knowing how to code is not the same thing as knowing how to develop. You can be a good coder and yet not be a very good developer. The tasks and responsibilities overlap but are not the same. It’s not a mysterious art, nor is it rocket science. But it is hard to do well.
In addition to development, we also provide online marketing services: primarily search engine optimization and search engine advertising. At this time, we prefer to promote POP built sites because we feel we have greater control over the outcome.
Many of our clients need help with creating content for their sites, particularly written content. Our creative services include copywriting, photography, and original artwork.
If you are interested in contacting us, we suggest emailing first. Try to include some details about your project. If you transmit within daylight hours, we usually reply back within an hour or so; otherwise, the next day.
Oh, one more thing. We also have some experience with other areas of design. You can see some samples under the portfolio tab. This comes in handy if your project encompasses more than web development and you’d like to have it all handled by one shop.
POP provided a customized and elegant solution to a complex need to completely rebuild a website and database. We chose this firm after an exhaustive world-wide search. They are easy to work with, creative, and well-versed in the intricacies of commercial web design. Pricing is fair in comparison to abilities and services. We worked with Peter and his team remotely from Kansas City and the distance was not a problem. POP quickly became a partner and trusted adviser for our business.

Peter is easy to collaborate with and the results are fantastic. He knows his stuff and is very resourceful and a great troubleshooter. The best part: as the web site committee chair, I get to take credit for all his hard work!

I have known Peter for over 15 years and he always produces quality work and has integrity…your best bet for whatever design needs you might have for your business.

Peter is the personification of creative intelligence. His uncanny ability to consistently infuse the appropriate balance of creative flair and impact into text and editorial projects is inspiring. He’s unflappable under pressure and exercises the appropriate amount of levity to make working with him a true pleasure.

Peter and I collaborated together on a couple branding campaigns for CrossFit Crown City. Peter is consistently able to come up with designs that are playful, poignant and serious—Oh, and they sell, too.

I have no hesitation in recommending Peter Otte Productions. He comes up with creative ideas and does not give up till the task is accomplished. He follows up and goes out of the way to be very helpful. Enjoyed working with him.

We worked with Peter to create our new corporate graphic design and to apply this to our sales literature and website. He is a team player with a structured approach to the design and creative process and is always ready to learn more about what we do and our business.
Mark Wilson, Infinova
I recommend Peter wholeheartedly. He designed our website, firstwilshire.com, and our marketing brochure. He was professional, flexible, and met all our deadlines, despite us making a number of change requests. I think Peter is an excellent designer.
Dmitriy Kernasovskiy, CFA, First Wilshire Securities Management
Peter designed a really classy brochure for us to use with our Green Business Certification Program and was easy to work with – not always the case with ‘creative types’.
John Brooks, City of Thousand Oaks
Peter is a very talented web designer with an extensive knowledge on the interworkings of web development.
