Responsive webdesign for the Danish bike company Christiania Bikes, who made their special carrier bike famous for transporting children and goods. The trend which arose in the area of Christiania soon spread to other cities as well as other countries.
Christiania is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighborhood located in central Copenhagen. Originally the area was used by the military, but when the danish defense cleared out the barracks in 1971, a number of squatters moved in, and that was the beginning of Christiania.
In 1978 the freetown of Christiania was made official, and already then the area did not allow cars. This forced people to think of other transport methods, and in 1984 the first carrier bicycles were launched.
The website is designed in a modern, timeless and user friendly way just like the bike. The yellow color is inspired from the three yellow circles on the Christiania flag. We find that the mobility and usage of the bike is very important, that is why you can #Christianiabikes on a image of you and your bike and by that inspire others to learn about the Christiania bike brand. At the same time you will participate in a competition about winning gear for your bike.
Moreover the website gives you an overview of the different models as well as finding your nearest reseller.
