The Hallway's Simon Lee to teach UNSW's Master of PR and Advertising Creativity course

SimonLee1_edited-1.jpgThe Hallway creative partner Simon Lee (left) has been invited by the University of New South Wales to teach the University's Master of Public Relations and Advertising Creativity course.
 
Lee joins UNSW's Journalism and Media Research Centre, working alongside leading creativity researcher and acclaimed novelist Dr. Bem Le Hunte.

Says Le Hunte: "The students are incredibly fortunate to have someone like Simon teaching them. A philosopher turned creative director - you couldn't get a better fit for the university's approach to advertising as a discipline. The students are also very lucky to have hands-on training in The Hallway's philosophical approach to advertising and its hallmark 'rigorous creativity'.

"UNSW is all about preparing students for the future and The Hallway seems to be an agency that's continually pushing at the edges of what such a future could entail."
 
UNSW's Master of Public Relations and Advertising program provides graduates, or those seeking to change careers professionally, relevant education in public relations and advertising. The program offers the latest in theory, research and practice with a unique focus on creativity, interactivity and engagement with social and contemporary issues. Graduates develop knowledge of how professional communicators can help organisations build mutually beneficial relationships with the public - including citizens, consumers and critics.
 
Lee's advertising work has been highly awarded both in Australia and internationally. He has also just completed his debut feature film -Dream Racer, due for official release later this year.
 
Lee has previously tutored both AWARD school and ADMA'S "Direct Marketing Creative School" (DMCS), but this is his first foray into university academia since graduating in Philosophy and French from the University of Wales Swansea (UK).

Says Lee: "I'm excited by the opportunity. I believe great things can happen at the intersection of the academic and commercial worlds."
