I think that it would be best for me to first introduce myself. My name is Temi Ogunye, I recently graduated from The University of Manchester with a first-class degree in Philosophy and Politics and, strictly speaking, I am not in the advertising and/or marketing industry.

I think that it would be best for me to first introduce myself. My name is Temi Ogunye, I recently graduated from The University of Manchester with a first-class degree in Philosophy and Politics and, strictly speaking, I am not in the advertising and/or marketing industry. And although I worked on digital communications at the British Council for a while, I don't have any particularly strong ambition to get into the industry. That said, I must also add that I am fascinated by advertising. I think that it is an industry that impacts greatly upon the lives of most people, but to which far too little critical thought is applied by outsiders, and about which even less interesting things are said by outsiders. I think that this is a real shame and I hope to do my little bit to change it. It is my fascination with advertising, coupled with the things that I learnt at the British Council and continue to learnt from the other members of the futurerising team, that will inform my contributions to this blog.
