Hawkins Multimedia Acquires Gimundo.com
Hawkins Multimedia recently revamped and relaunched Gimundo.com, the site for good news served daily.
Tuesday September 1st 2009 | By Jeff Hawkins
For over a year in 2007 and 2008, Kathryn Hawkins of Hawkins Multimedia LLC worked as editor-in-chief of Gimundo.com, a website and daily e-newsletter dedicated to good news, which was owned by a Los Angeles start-up. In late 2008, the start-up folded (as start-ups are known to do), and Gimundo was presumed dead.
But not for long: in April 2009, Hawkins Multimedia LLC purchased Gimundo.com, redesigned it, and relaunched it the following month with a new look and new content. Now owned and operated solely by Hawkins Multimedia LLC (Kathryn handles the editorial and social media marketing roles, while Jeff runs web design, development, and all thing tech), the site traffic has grown from less than 20,000 to its current average of 250,000 unique visitors a month.
The site isn’t a full-time business for us at this point, but it’s an exciting side project that lets us connect with and inspire a large audience, sharing stories of fun, unique, and heartwarming happenings across the world.
Apart from our personal love of the site, from a professional standpoint, Gimundo gives us a chance to play in our own sandbox to work out how to make the best castles—letting us try new things any time we want, and pass along the benefit of our own experience to our consulting clients.
We’re still in the process of adding new features to Gimundo, but feel free to poke around the site for a while. We think you’ll like what you see. And if you’d like to see how we can help you, we’d be happy to discuss a consultation arrangement to fit your needs.

Jeff Hawkins was a pleasure to work with and a great teacher. He provided us with simple instructions, created a site that was user-friendly, and did an outstanding job dealing with any minor changes we needed help with. I'd recommend him to any business starting a new website.Christy Wezowicz—Restaurant Manager & Banquet Coordinator, Royal River Grillhouse
