How Jigidi came to be
One night in 2006 - rather sleep deprived after having become a first-time father to a beautiful boy - Magnus stumbled upon an online site with jigsaw puzzles and thought to himself: 'What if I could take a picture of my baby and send it to his grandmother as a puzzle?'.
Magnus created Jigidi and sent a puzzle-photo of the beloved sleep terrorist to his granny. She loved it! And the rest, as they say, is history.
Jigidi has since grown in accordance with the general idea that playing, communicating and sharing moments with each other makes our lives richer.
A few company facts – about us
At Jigidi we solve, create, share and talk about jigsaw puzzles - and we continuously strive to combine the fun parts of putting together a physical puzzle with the obvious benefits of a digital solution.
Jigidi was launched in 2007 in Denmark with just a few active users, and by 2018 we proudly offer:
- A large number of puzzles within any given category - 2.9 million public puzzles and 1.3 million private puzzles. All created by Jigidiers!
- A vast community of committed and generous Jigidiers (37,000 active accounts and more than 400,000 monthly unique user visits)
- A highly user-centric design and an easy to use interface.
The ultimate goal of Jigidi is to be the world's best online social puzzle experience for everybody. The most important inspiration towards this goal is you - our users. Your actions, remarks and wishes guide us in this endeavor.
But enough about us – let's talk about you!
Jigidi has users from all over the world, 231 countries to be exact. Users, who reach out to each other on account of the puzzles you come across, shared interests and evolving sympathy through shared experiences.
We are quite humbled by this and wish to enable this further as we continue to develop Jigidi.
Creativity is an inherently social act, as neuroscientist David Eagleman and composer Anthony Brandt state in their book The Runaway Species: "We seek to astonish each other, to amaze, to inject wonder, surprise incredulity. This is what we're wired to do for one another, and this is what we seek to do for one another".
And there you have it. Jigidi is here so that you can astonish and be astonished – inspire and be inspired. At you're your own pace and comfort. Thank you for being here – for us at Jigidi and for each other - in precisely this sense! ♥
