Staying here in New York you start to get why everybody praises Copenhagen for it’s bike culture. The biggest problem commuting on bike in Copenhagen is that there is too many on bikes! Specially in rush hours while crossing Søerne
- 36% of Copenhagen’s citizens ride their bikes everyday!
Apparently the guys over at at copenhagencyclechic.com are not only amazed by the cycling lifestyle of Copenhagen but also find the style and especially the girls rather interesting.
Copenhagen Cycle Chic is a social documentary blog about cycling life in this lovely city. It’s bike advocacy in high heels with a streetstyle twist from the world’s cycling capital.
Kind of miss DK when I see those pics. Also go to their flickr page for more pics.
I finally got the time to create myself a blog. I named it LaKriss and other sweet stuff! and as the name indicates it’s going to be about me and my endeavors in the creative industry and in life in general, as well as other artists and creatives work and stuff I find inspiring while traveling, surfing the web, going out or just chilling in my hometown Copenhagen with my friends.
While we’re waiting for me to redesign and update my site (I know it’s been a while, my harddrive broke down with everything on it! I won’t bore you with details, but kids BACKUP BACKUP BACKUP… can’t say it enough times - I learned the hard way!). In the meantime I will be posting some random work stuff here, I have a lot of new exciting work to showcase. I just made this quote ’cause I think it looks good :0
Right now as you can see from the picture I’m in New York where I’m going to freelance for the next 3 months for Hungry Elephant. I’m working with my good friend Andrew Smart on Hungry Elephants own identity and site as well as clients Mercedes AMG and possibly Ray Ban. Other of Hungry’s clients include Adobe, Verizon, Scion and Yahoo!, so I’m sure it’s going to be a challenging and awarding experience staying here… it already has. Hungry Elephant just moved to new offices the same day I started, so it’s new to everyone - not just me! We’re located at 236 W 30th st. 8 floor, come by for a glass of rye! I’ll post some sneak peaks at what I’m working on here soon… so check back regularly ;)
Other than that - NYC is great! What can I say it’s the city that never sleeps! I’ve hooked up with old friends and new ones and done quite a bit of partying, it seems like there is always something to do when you’re in New York. I’ve had a wonderful 2 and a half weeks so far. I’m staying in Skaden and Stevies cozy East Village apartment (thnx guys!). For anyone who’s been here you’ll know that it is located at the heart of East Village surrounded by some of the best restaurants, cafés you can find and close to vibrant LES and SoHo.
And oh yeah… I got a bike! After i started biking here I can’t imagine not having one. It definitely is the best means of transportation even considering the manhattan traffic. You just see and discover so much more of the city than sitting in a dull cap or crowded subway.

So I think that should be enough for this first post - see ya soon.
