The tagline is a part of your website and should use the same font family as the header or text on your website. Don’t use the logo’s font.
Place the tagline right below, above or next to the logo.
Your logo needs a short additional phrase called tagline.
The tagline is a brand message that describes the primary purpose of your website. It represents your brand, your mission and your promises.
1. Focus on your primary purpose
If you create a blog or an online service focus on the primary purpose of your website and try to express what makes it special. If you want to use your website to promote your business or sell your products focus on your products or your services and try to express what makes them unique.

- What can I promise?
3. Add personality
The tagline should represent your brand.
- What’s my brand’s personality?
- What do we represent?
