Bournemouth University advertising student Mati Kettell talks to us about his experiences and aspirations in the industry.

I am a first year student at Bournemouth University getting involved with all things creative and digital. More specifically directing and copywriting but I want to have a little experience with everything so I can pinpoint exactly what I want to do and be versatile with my work. 

Find me on LinkedIn and or Twitter to connect with me and it you've got any queries, give me an email. I rarely say no to opportunities (within limits).

What drove you to take up a course in advertising?

I found the advertising industry through my experiences with other areas of the media. I love film, photography and design. My teenage years were spent revolving around a camera. I was constantly making short films, writing scripts instead of homework and planning out ideas during classes. But as much as my love for production grew, I was always driven by good ideas. I took an interest in what businesses were doing, I looked at advertising and thought to myself “Yeah, I could do that”.
