Chances are you’ve probably already been referred to us from one of our clients. And perhaps you’ve already spoken to Christopher, our biz dev guy, about your app project. So you have a good idea of what we do.

But if you’ve arrived here without that reference and are curious about who we are, welcome! Here’s our story: In 1997, two freelance designers were designing books and other print publications. As technology evolved, so did we, and Blue Pane Studio was born. Today, we are an app design studio with a strong focus on complex events. Though small, we provide large attention to our clients’ projects.

Located in Durham, North Carolina, our studio works closely with clients to create apps for their events and programs, including them at every stage of wireframing, design, and development. Content upload can be a daunting task for some clients due to lack of time or staff, but we’re always there to help with that too. And of course we do all the work to get the app into the App Store and Google Play.

We don’t try to be all things to all possible customers. Instead, we treat every project as a future portfolio credential and rely very much upon present clients to introduce us to future customers.

In addition to the current projects you see here on our site, we’ve created apps for Duke University’s Clinical Research Institute; Penn State’s ISBM Members meetings; Dartmouth Graduate Studies; SAS Institute, IBM, the Research Triangle Park Foundation, and the NC Center for Public Policy Research.
