    Posted in by Utku Can on 30 July 2012


    A couple of months ago, we excitedly announced the return of Foundry for 2012. Following a call for applications, we took over one of the shipping containers at Boxpark and invited our shortlist down to a day long workshop, as part of Uncontained.

    The workshop was lots of fun and the selection process tough, but it now gives me great pleasure to introduce you to the team following the footsteps of Foundry 2011 and Olly. In their own words, they are…

    Mad World 1

    We've just launched Mad World, an interactive audio experience that invites you to take a trip inside three very different brains, brought to life with the help of some mind-blowing binaural audio.

    Mad World is the online companion piece to Channel 4's 4 Goes Mad - a season of prime-time programmes challenging mental health stigma and discrimination. The season kicks off on Monday 23rd July, visit the website for more info.

    Developed in collaboration with mental health charities Time to Change, Rethink Mental Illness and Mind, Mad World explores three of the most misunderstood mental health conditions – schizophrenia, OCD and bipolar disorder.

    We are delighted to announce Sexperience came away as the winner for 'Best Website' at last night's Broadcast Digital Awards.

    We have been working on Sexperience with Channel 4 for the last four years, improving it year on year. In this refresh, we concentrated on unifying the areas of the site under topics most relevant to teenagers. We also made waves with Sexperience 1000, an interactive data visualiser around sex we realised with the help of our partners Lingobee.

    Thanks to the Mints who all worked very hard on Sexperience, thanks to Endemol for their contributions and thanks to Adam Gee and all at Channel 4 for the opportunity to keep making great work. Last but not least, thanks to Broadcast Magazine for the hangover.

    Foundry 2012: applications open

    Posted in by Andy Bell on 22 May 2012


    Last year Mint launched Foundry, our graduate placement scheme. It has two key principles:

    1. Don't get graduates in simply to help with jobs round the office.
    2. Hire people who don’t do what Mint does, to work on things Mint hasn’t done before.

    We're delighted to announce Foundry is coming back for 2012, and applications are now open.
