Marketing - Using Lytho (previously Ignite and InMotion)

The Marketing and Communications Department upgraded their project request system to Lytho, formerly Ignite/InMotion, which will provide one place for all marketing requests including design, copywriting, photography, videography, proofing, and web edits. Lytho enhances the team's capabilities to create and collaborate on more complex campaigns.

The login for Lytho can be found at https://uwplatt.ignite.inmotionnow.com/. The system uses your uwplatt email and password.
