The Mushroom Farmer

Open University

Cynan makes Japanese mushrooms feel at home in shipping containers in the shadow of Snowdon, North Wales.

We joined forces with Sequence to produce a series of documentaries for the Open University. ‘Hafan’ is a brand new interactive campaign to help attract students and inspire sign-ups to Welsh based courses.

Hafan - Open University

Unlike other universities, Open University students study undergraduate courses from their homes; from anywhere, which means anyone can access courses. With a wide range of courses attracting over 100,000 students each year from over the world, a small section is formed around Wales. Wales’ unique culture, heritage, history and language are some of these course elements.

“Our aim was to create an interactive experience that was meaningful. One that showcased the course in a refreshing way. To achieve this we focused on the people and their stories to share a truth about Wales that users could connect with.”
