Jimdo Website Examples
Jimdo is a website builder that is very similar to Wix and Weebly. It doesn’t require any code writing skills from users. Instead, people are offered to use pre-designed templates and they can customize them by adding new elements of their own.
Germany is a country of origin for Jimdo and their team and website support are offered in more than 9 different languages. It’s a very huge global presence, I should say. Over 15 million websites were created with Jimdo starting from the first day until nowadays.
Jimdo is a good choice for newbies as well as for those, who have some coding basis. Let’s take a look at some Jimdo-powered websites.
Example 1: Anna Ehrenreich Luftartistik
Anna-ehrenreich-luftartistik.de is a website of Anna Ehrenreich – a trapeze artist from Germany. The site is created in the German language and looks like a pretty nice portfolio sample. There is much you can find out about the gymnast from it – biography, special achievements, awards, contact info. A special web page displays an extensive photo and video gallery that looks quite bright and impressive against the snow whie background. Instagram account access is available here as well to provide more photos of the gymnast.
The website is designed in a simple yet modern style. The entire background of it is white, while colorful and black and white photos looks pretty stunning against it. This does not but drives user attention and engages visitors to keep browsing the project.
Example 2: Sebastian Briw
Sebastianbriw.ch is a website belonging to Sebastian Briw – a mountain guide, who has the intention to present his activity to the audience, unveiling its secrets and advantages. The website is created in the German language. It looks quite consistent, providing all the must-have info about Sebastian. The main web pages provide information about the guide, his services, prices and contacts. There is nothing excessive here – all the elements and sections are on their places.
The website itself is created in a simple yet contemporary style. White and black images harmoniously merge with colorful photos, thus creating the focal points that are worth special attention. Instagram and Facebook buttons are available here as well to provide more information and photos to users interested in it. This is a pretty good sample of a portfolio website created with Jimdo!
Example 3: Federleicht Bride Styling Agency
Brautstyling-bielefeld.de – is a website of “Federleicht Make Up & Kosmetik Atelier” – a bride styling agency from Beilefeld. The Agency is owned by Marlies Noack – make up and hair stylist, who has an intention to promote her business and present her services to everyone, who needs a professional wedding stylist. The very first look at the website gives the general understanding of its specialization – the large-screen header featuring the coloured photo of a bride tells more than a thousand of words.
The website, which is created in the German language, delivers the exhaustive information about the agency, including its general info, services list, biography of its founder and owner, the team, pricing list, gallery and contacts. Website design is simple yet concise as well. The general background of the project is snow white, which makes coloured photos the highlight of the project. That’s a good example of a business/portfolio website built with Jimdo!
Example 4: Burgunder Terrassen
Burgunderterrassen.de is a website of Burgunden Terrassess – a place, where you can find new two-storey houses for sale. The website comprises detailed facts and exhaustive info about the spot. This is where you can discover important info about the main sales aspects, prices, available house plans, company contacts and more. When browsing the website, you will also come across quality images of houses offered for sale.
The website creates simple yet credible impression right from the start. Apart from the detailed info, the project also abounds in quality photos, house plans and images of landscapes taken from above. They make it possible to have a look at the entire landscape surrounding the house you are interested in. A convenient Google Maps widget lets you find out the contacts of a company as well as to see the best route to get there. That’s very comfortable and handy for most users.
Example 5: Martinas Meyer & Marks Friseure
Martinas-friseure.de is a website of a Martinas Meyer&Marks beauty parlor found in Germany. The site which is also created in the German language, is rather informative and attention-grabbing. There is much info you can find out, while browsing the major sections here, including general data about the beauty parlour, services list, prices, contact info and, of course, an image gallery. The latter is very spectacular, featuring versatile haircuts for men and women.
It’s quite difficult to call the website design complicated. It’s is sipke yet concise and appealing. The website abounds of bright coloured photos of haircuts depicted against the white background. That’s a must-have element for this type of project. Availability of the Google Maps widgets in the Contacts page provides detailed guidelines on how to find the place, thus, simplifying users’ search. Good job!
Example 6: Jandeys
Jandeys is an online shop based in New Zealand. The company was established in 2012. What do they sell? Jandals! There’s an interesting fact that people from New Zealand spend almost half of their lives in jandals. No kidding, they are quite popular there.
I like the way their website looks. It feels like summer but without those screaming colors. They have a custom favicon, which looks like a top part of a jandal but is also very similar to curly brackets. Navigation is very standard, each online shop has something in common. In general, everything looks nice, but you have a feeling like something’s missing…maybe a bit more HD images could solve the problem.
Example 7: Straight Edge Scaffolding
Straightedgescaffolding.com – this website was formed by a group of individuals who have a modern, passionate and experienced approach to the scaffold industry. I think, we don’t have to know more about them right now. If you’ve ever seen any website related to the architecture sphere, you’ll always associate the yellow-grey color scheme with this particular theme. This one is not an exception.
Despite the ordinary choice of a background, the website looks pretty good. I like to see references to the companies they cooperate with. Some of them are famous, some aren’t, but it’s always a good thing. The website looks complete and that’s what I like most about it.
Example 8: Partner Solutions
Partnersolutionscapital.com – this is a website of an investment company, which can help you with an advice, lend some funds or help you gain a credit from a bank…well, you get the idea. From the very first look, you can tell that the company has taken the right approach with their website. It looks great! Lots of elements are animated and look really cool. No issues with navigation system, it’s plain and simple. The only thing missing is a one-click callback option. It’s always good to connect with people in just a couple of seconds, without searching a phone number or email address.
Example 9: Eileen Egan
Eileen-egan.com – this one is a sort of an artground for Eileen Egan, who is a porcelain master. I’ll start with the benefits: the good thing is that images are of high quality. I also like when websites have their own custom favicons displayed in a browser tab; and there’s a shopping cart icon, which is very convenient to work with.
The bad thing is a background, which looks poor. But the main issue is that Eileen should‘ve created a one-page website instead of this one. It lacks information and, thus, looks incomplete. Eileen, make a promo page representing your works, choose something other than white background and you’ll see the difference right from the start!
Example 10: Hub Vintges Photography
Huibvintges.com – here we have a nice sample of a wedding website. Mostly, these sites are not very interesting, because we’ve already seen something similar on weddings of our friends, relatives etc. But this one is quite impressive (and it’s not because I’m a ‘vintage’ fan:) All images are in HD quality and look awesome, so, traditional white background doesn’t matter a lot here. Despite that the Journal section is overloaded with posts and photos, it’s interesting to explore it, but, I think, in this case, there should be a “stick” on the top menu bar. And a few words about the menu bar itself – it’s very easy to left it unnoticed, it may be a bit more eye-catching.
The good thing about Jimdo is that you don’t have to be a member of Silicon Valley to use it. If you have enough time, there’s another good thing: a pretty long free trial period, so you can test the platform before buying it.
However, if you intend to create your own blog or a promo-page of any sort, Jimdo is not the best solution for it. Jimdo doesn’t offer a great variety of templates. Of course, quality is more important than quantity, but with a limited choice, you run a risk of having your website look and feel like many others.
