Not every idea you have when you’re sixteen years old is a good one, but in this case we got lucky. Back then, we were talking about what we wanted to do when we “grew up.” One thing we knew: it had to be something fun.
It’s the founding belief of Jimdo that with fun, anyone can build something great. If we can empower people with a great website that is fun to make, they can go on to pursue their big idea or tell their own story.
It’s led us to the company we have today—with the culture, colleagues, and customers that we love. Now, we want our outward appearance to reflect that inner inspiration. That’s why we’re releasing a brand new visual look for Jimdo.
Note: Don't worry, this redesign won’t change the way your website appears to the outside world. You'll notice differences in your Site Admin, but your website will remain the same.Our new logo represents this spirit. It comes from the idea of building blocks, just like how you use different building blocks to playfully create a great website. We also updated to a color palette that feels fresh and energetic, reflecting the diversity and creativity of Jimdo’s users.
We think that in order to accomplish something great, the work needs to be enjoyable and engaging. This applies to websites too. Every time we hear from a customer who had fun building a website (and who maybe wasn’t expecting to), we cheer. Because that’s the way it should be. It’s a priority for us to keep building this fun into our product as we add new features and make improvements.
Now, when we look at the new visual style of Jimdo, we’re excited to see something bright, friendly, creative and helpful. We see all the people who enjoy what they do, and are proud of what they create. In short, we finally see ourselves, our customers, and our company. It feels good to let our true colors shine through, and we hope you feel the same way.
