An experienced web designer or web design company will understand the different assets of your brand including your logo, font, and colors of choice, and they will be able to use this in the best way possible on your website to showcase your company.
Amateur websites or do it yourself websites often incorporate colors that don’t match the existing brand whilst use inconsistent logos and a variety of different font choices none of which matches.
