5. Helps you be consistent
Do you use the same font on your business card and brochure? Is your logo the same size? Does your website look the same on a mobile as it does on a desktop? These are all things you will not have to worry about when using Chameleon for your graphic design and website design. We know what files, fonts and layouts to use for web and which ones to use for print.
