Biography

Mr. Chan holds an MA Design with distinction. For 20+ years he had been an experienced design practitioner in the graphic design, advertising, and publication fields in local, China and multi-national corporate environments. He believes design is a powerful change-making force in the contemporary world.

Before joining PolyU SPEED as a full-time lecturer in 2014, Mr. Chan has already been teaching in the School’s BA in Applied & Media Arts programme since 2005, as well as in PolyU School of Design, HK Art School, HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity, covering design-related subjects in Form 5, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. Mr. Chan’s students constantly won competitions with their assignments from the subjects he taught and tutored. A notable example is that for 2 consecutive years his students won as champions with their subject projects in the HK Social Enterprise Challenge 2010 and 2011. An accumulated cash award of almost HK$400,000 enabled them to incubate their student projects into real businesses and made them entrepreneurs in social innovation.

Besides taught programmes, Mr. Chan also spoke extensively to local and Mainland designers and students, design managers, and senior management executives in seminars and corporate training programmes.

When Mr. Chan worked in PolyU School of Design, he helped to run 2 research labs and was involved in a lot of research and consultancy projects, ranging from consumer and healthcare product innovations to exploring HK-PRD collaboration in the creative and manufacturing industries, including a HK$1.8-million design research project funded by CreateHK.
