thePLAN - User experience, mobile and accessibility design and development for The Ohio State University

Business goals first, and the rest will follow

We always start with a firm understanding of the problems our clients are trying to solve. We then use a variety of tools and processes to flesh out our thinking in an iterative and collaborative manner, involving clients at every step to ensure alignment and resolution of issues along the way.

SharePoint for the rest of us

Shaping the user experience through user testing prototypes, we developed the site organization to align with the user's mindset and ensure functionality regardless of device preference.

thePLAN - Ohio State University Mobile First

Mobile first–all the time

Mobile is the first access point of today’s Web, regardless of business category or audience. We start there and pull the experience through to include other devices and screen sizes.

Prototype to get it right

We never build a line of code before we let you touch and feel the end product first. We leverage a variety of cloud-based tools that blur the lines between design and development.
