Get Inspired By These Winning Jimdo Designs

Here at the Jimdo Blog, we love showcasing great Jimdo websites. Today that job is particularly easy, because we have the winners of our 99designs certification contest to share with you.

 

Last week, we announced our partnership with 99designs, which includes a new Logo & Hosted Website category. In this category, designers compete to create a custom logo for you. Once you select the winning logo, your designer creates a JimdoPro website styled to match—so the entire look of your website and brand is cohesive and put-together.

 

design Inspiration for your website
Part of our process has been training and certifying designers so that they can build awesome Jimdo websites. And even though many of these designers have only just started using the platform, we were blown away by what they created. It just goes to show how easy and versatile Jimdo can be.

 

The best part is that all of these websites were made with regular Jimdo templates and elements—no special coding required.

 

Note: These websites were created for training purposes; they don’t represent actual businesses or people. The designers were tasked with creating “dummy” Jimdo websites—so you’ll notice they are full of fake content and some “lorem ipsum” text filler. The real goal was for them to show off some of their design skills using the Jimdo platform, but to be honest they make us wish some of these businesses really existed!

So if you're ready to have a bit of fun and get inspired, check out our contest winners below. You can click on each picture to view the full sample site.

 

Flea: All My Life


Address: http://fleabass.jimdo.com/
Designer: maylo_modulus
Template: Rio de Janeiro

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
Ok, this isn’t really Flea’s website, but we loved it as an example of some of the cool things you can do with the Rio de Janeiro template. Beautiful typography and nicely arranged headings help structure the page, and subtle splashes of red throughout the site really pop. This site is really set apart by the fantastic photo choices and the wonderful layout of every single page.

 

Sugar House Distillery


Address: http://distillery.jimdo.com/
Designer: Sergii Scrawl
Template: Zurich

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
We loved the sophisticated, vintage feel of this website. Beautiful drawings complement the colors and background photos, and the custom horizontal line that the designer made is another nice touch. What also makes this site stand out is the clean spacing and layout, as well as the use of columns.

 

Bark


Address: http://nevergohungry.jimdo.com/
Designer: nevergohungry
Template: Berlin

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
The fun, bright colors and fonts on this website really complement the playfulness of the logo. We also liked that the paragraph text is kept simple and readable. The designer cleverly used the background image to offer a discount code and blended the yellow background with the white area below the header. This website has so much great detail, right down to the footer with a double address layout.

 

Advantura


Address: http://petraburger99.jimdo.com/
Designer: Petra Burger
Template: Miami

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
We loved the way this designer used photos and two lovely fonts (Sacramento and Raleway) to create a cohesive look across the website. The site also uses a simple, clear structure consistently throughout, and even includes a beautiful sample blog.

 

ItsABox


Address: http://gunungprau.jimdo.com/
Designer: sleepingpasa
Template: Shanghai

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
A very modern design with terrific use of white space. The simple logo is repeated and reinforced throughout the site in different, clever ways. When there are spots where information needs to be shared, like on the right side of the contact page or in the footer, the text and headings are perfectly arranged with a lot of thought and precision.

 

Japitex

Address: http://japitex.jimdo.com/
Designer: Zanett
Template: Miami

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
Showcasing a wonderful personality and use of color, this website has lots of great touches. The colorful “rain drops” that reinforce the branding of the logo are added to actual photographs, or they stand alone on the background or within the content area. Both the heading and paragraph fonts also completment the logo and the site title.

 

KusdiTea


Address: http://kusditea.jimdo.com/
Designer: Daelinzan
Template: Paris

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
Sometimes transparent backgrounds can make it tricky to keep your text visible, but here it's done very well and the white text is still very readable. We also liked how the use of yellow adds points of emphasis and reinforces a brand identity. Little added design touches like the three seals on the bottom of the home page and the repeated logo in the right side of the footer helped this design stand out as one of our winners.

 

Gurbuz Photography


Address: http://semixphotography.jimdo.com/
Designer: Zaanmedia
Template: Rome

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
There were dozens of photography-based websites in our contest, and this one stood out with great image choices and a clean and simple black and white color scheme that lets the photographs pop. The clever layout of the portfolio page (created before the new Jimdo gallery views were available) and the hex-cropped images on the homepage were both very nice touches.

 

Goldeman Brandt


Address: http://goldeman-brandt2.jimdo.com/
Designer: TMark
Template: Miami

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
This elegant website is a perfect match for the luxury-inspired logo. With a black background and white text, the designer uses subtle touches of gold or blue to highlight important headings or links. We also loved the beautiful touch of the lion favicon—extending elements of the logo even to the browser tab!

 

Mateusz Widuch Designs


Address: http://mwiduch.jimdo.com/
Designer: Mateusz Widuch
Template: Cape Town

 

Jimdo and 99designs Logo and Hosted Website Contest Winner
Another very clean layout using a very modern “flat” design. Subtle blues and whites worked perfectly with the excellent background choice. The use of columns, headings, horizontal lines, and spacing make for a beautiful reading experience.
