Pixels & Bits

Our process

National Geographic Channel



Pixels & Bits worked with Behavior Design turning their graphically rich designs into a dynamic user interface for the National Geographic Television Channel. Users can view their local television schedule via calendar, search by television show categorized by theme, featured shows or specials.

Pixels & Bits’ role within the project was implementation of complex JavaScript features and CSS foundation. Each show, theme, and special has its own template driven page giving the user an interactive experience as one is able to browse through photos, watch a brief clip of the show, and often play games or test their knowledge with a quiz.
