Parts Unknown

Visual DesignUXDevelopment

Have you ever heard of Anthony Bourdain? How about CNN? We teamed up with our sister company, Roads and Kingdoms, to transport fans into the world of Parts Unknown. With R&K creating fresh original content, ANML developed the UX and Design to bring every story, meal, and destination to life. We gave our audience the ability to eat like Bourdain eats, travel like he travels, and further explore every unique global destination featured on his show.

Rather than lock pages into a set format, we created a flexible component library that empowers editors to create on their own terms. Our goal was to provide endless opportunities so that every page can be as unique as its destination.
