it shouldn't surprise you that the superfuture crew loves to travel. as a result we're pretty discerning when it comes to airports, and let us tell you that we've learned over the years which ones to avoid at all cost. but the weird thing is that even some of our preferred hubs [read: either efficient, well-connected or simply achingly well-designed airports] have an abominable online presence. now that can't exactly be said of athens international airport, it opened in 2001 as part of a major infrastructure expansion push that would also benefit the olympic summer games held in athens three years later. and now it has a rather cool website too. designed by digital agency mozaik, it offers travelers a groundbreaking digital experience.
the athens-based creatives developed it from design conception to front-end development. the design concept focuses on converting user needs into a true online experience through sharply-designed visual content that's paired with ergonomic solutions. the design itself draws inspiration from the airport's infrastructure whereas the touch-device mobile layout anticipates future user trends and enhances user experience and proximity. the featured videos, created with a time-lapse technique, have been combined with transitional effects to unfold the website's targeted content from the welcome page to home page. athens international airport may be one of europe's smaller hubs but it fully grasps the added value of a well-designed online presence.
