Jimdo San Francisco Launch Party Photos

Last month, the Jimdo USA team hosted a party in San Francisco to celebrate the opening of our U.S. office.

 

We had a great time: talking with local Jimdo users who came, looking at the gallery of Jimdo sites up around the room, eating real German bread from Brown Bear Bakery, making action flipbooks (more on that below), and hanging out with new friends and old from San Francisco.

 

More pictures below -- including more about the Jimdo users who came out.

 

Many thanks to Podio for letting us use their space to throw our party!

Jimdo Users

We'll be unveiling Jimdo User Spotlights about each of these local San Francisco Jimdo users who came to our party -- but to give you a little taste of what's to come, read (and see them at our party):

Action Flipbooks

Matthew from Action Flipbooks came out with his flipbook-making gear and props. Everyone at the launch party had the chance to make a flipbook. You can see a few pictures of people posing in the gallery below.

 

Plus, we have Matthew and his team to thank for providing the music and DJing throughout the night.

Update: We interviewed Matt for an in-person Jimdo Spotlight on Action Flipbooks. Don't miss the video from the Jimdo party

Basic Cookies

We found out that Kacie started her business recently with a JimdoPage -- Basic Cookies -- delivering homemade to Silicon Valley and parts of SF. We ordered some cookies for the party, and it was awesome when Kacie herself stayed to hang out for a bit.

 

If you're in the area and need a delivery of delicious sweets, check out Basic Cookies!

Yuki Yamagata

What would Jimdo be without a little international representation at our launch? Luckily we discovered Yuki Yamagata, an illustrator and artist from Japan currently studying at Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

 

To commemorate the occasion, Yuki presented us with the beautiful illustration you see at the top of this post. Thank you Yuki!

Bike Wrappers

Another San Francisco entrepeneur, Brent Thomas, has JimdoPages for his two businesses -- Bike Wrappers and Dog Wrappers.  We wrote him to see if he'd be interested in joining our Jimdo USA celebration. Lucky for us, Brent came and brought bike wrappers to show off.

 

Take a peek at the gallery below to see the bike wrappers in action!
