Ask Jimdo Experts for their favorite Jimdo template, and they’ll probably tell you all about Malaga. Clean and modern, Malaga is a go-to template for business websites. But, as you’ll see from the examples below, a “business website” doesn’t have to be boring. Malaga is also versatile enough to use for online stores, portfolio sites, and more.
Check out these top reasons why Malaga is a designer favorite, and learn some of the best ways to make Malaga work on your own website.
Malaga is one of Jimdo’s most flexible templates. Here are a few tricks to making it look its best.
LouLoute’s website is a DIYer’s dream. We love their short, simple homepage and the way they use the Photo Gallery Element to show off their latest projects. Notice that their logo is still easy to read at the smaller size.
New Zealand company Jandeys has made a website and online store that perfectly reflect their laid back style. We love the way they present their awesome product photos front-and-center on their homepage. Their clear navigation menu and neatly-organized footer make it a breeze for customers to find exactly what they need.
Black Yeti’s website makes great use of Malaga’s open, flexible content area. Notice how they’ve used Columns Elements to keep everything neatly aligned. Colorful, professional product photos and fun, stylistic fonts and colors really make this website stand out. We also like how they’ve installed a live chat widget right on their homepage so they can immediately answer customers’ questions.
The Partner Solutions Capital website, built by Jimdo Expert QuarkPixel, really shows off what Malaga can do. We love the striking, full-width background image and the way the colors complement the logo and buttons throughout. We also like the friendly, professional team page, which lets customers know exactly who they’ll be working with.
Who says a dry cleaning website would have to be...well, dry? Not this one from PLEATS. We love the colors they used and the crisp, clean design with pops of orange color. You’ll notice that this website, built from a 99designs contest, uses our one-page website approach.
Graphic designer Alex Morar takes Malaga in a different direction by skipping the top navigation entirely. He does this by hiding the pages in his Edit Navigation menu and making the menu bar transparent in Jimdo’s Style Editor. The result? His website and graphics grab your attention right away. We also love his attention to small details, including the icons he uses and his favicon.
The world travellers behind Wanderpreneurs have a website to match their carefree spirit. We also love the way they use the video background feature on their inspiration page. This website has some custom touches added by designer QuarkPixel, but its underlying structure is classic Malaga.
