I am currently redesigning my resume and while looking for inspiration, I came across some awesome designs. These are some of my faves because they push the envelope with graphics, color and typography. Because of this, they get your attention and that is what you want your resume to do.
You know, just because its a resume, that doesn’t mean it can’t look colorful or lively. It should reflect who you are and what type of work you do. If you are an illustrator, show some of your skills with some creative drawings. If photography is what you do then showcase a cool photo. No matter what field you are in, be smart with type and keep the information organized enough so it is easy to read. Remember, most employers don’t spend more than a minute or two looking over a resume. So you want yours to stop them in their tracks and get interested.
I hope you get some inspiration from these picks. They are certainly worthy of a double take or more!
