Cape Town

Cape Town has lots of space to display your content. Definitely spice it up with a subtle background image that shines through your colored background.

  • Slide-out vertical navigation
  • Slide-out vertical sub-navigation

Jimdo template - Cape Town variations

Our advice:


  • Use a background image behind the semi-transparent background color overlays
  • Use large typography for headlines and text to emphasize the template's clean structure
  • Use different but complementary background colors for the content and sidebar areas to differentiate them


  • For websites with a lot of subpages - the navigation is not obvious so your visitors may miss information that's not on the homepage
  • For shop websites - you need a really obvious website structure to ensure that your visitors don't get lost
  • For websites with bright and colorful fonts and background images
