University Relations has launched a new project management system, Lytho!

Effective November 7, 2022, University Relations launched a new project intake and management platform, Lytho, and will discontinue use of Smartsheet.

As a client-partner, you will enjoy increased transparency on project status and timelines as well as an integrated proofing platform that will make requesting projects, receiving proofs, and providing feedback a seamless experience.

We are excited to collaborate with you on your print design, media (photo or video), or digital design needs. 

Watch our brief tutorial on how to submit a request with University Relations using Lytho.

It's easy to log into Lytho. Click the blue button labeled Log in with SSO and enter your Radford University credentials.
