Jun "Alan" Chan is a Creative Advertising graduate of Leeds College of Art. His biggest success during his tenure was being part of a team who had reached the finals of Edcom's international Ad Venture competition. His main aspiration is to make a successful business that specialises in creative media production such as advertising, film, music and print.

What attracted you to wanting to work in the creative industries?

I was attracted to be part of a more creative area mainly because of the course I took, about half a year in it just seemed a more appealing type of education. In more scientific areas of learning it seems quite difficult to apply what you've learned outside of what you're getting taught. Simply put these more textbook focused fields were not stimulating to me, I really wanted something a little more free formed.
