Jonathan Tan

Year CS'14:

When he is not at work, Jonathan Tan, 26, expresses his creativity with street photography, using his mobile phone. Earlier in 2015 he launched “Your House Downstairs,” an Instagram series, which features photos of HDB void decks. Some of his photos were exhibited at the Noise Singapore 2015 Festival Exhibition at ION Orchard, as well as at the Mad About Singapore 2015 exhibition at Raffles City.

Currently a senior account executive at DDB Group Singapore, Jonathan, who recently married, has big dreams of making a name for himself in the advertising industry.

The former advertising major believes his experience in school, which included a stint as sports secretary of the Communication and Information Club during his first year, has offered many takeaways relevant to his current work.

“Apart from large McDonald’s takeaway orders with friends, the FYP (final year project) and internship gave me a glimpse of the working life ahead,” he said.
