Creative Resumes Revisited - Part I

roller-coasterHere We Go Again!
Last year in November we featured Part One and Part Two of Graphic Design Resumes: Plain or Different? In the series we debated the pros and cons of submitting creative resumes as opposed to standard resumes when going to job interviews or project bids.

There was quite a bit of interest in these articles and we've decided to revisit this theme for our readers.

We won't go into why or why you shouldn't submit resumes that are outside the box, but we will display them here for you to get some inspiration on creating a resume that is unique and stands apart from the crowd.

To see a larger image of the resumes presented here, just click on each one.

Small Is Good

Temitope Shoda is an architect by profession but the style of this resume definitely has some graphic design flair.

Shoda has miniaturized the whole document into carry around sized tiles. A great way for getting attention and remaining memorable!

It's All Between the Ears

In some cases a photo is requested with your resume. Francis Homo, aka Darthkix, decided to take this concept a bit further with some humor.

He displays a silhouette of his head and attaches a great deal of information about his various accomplishments, education, and abilities.

His resume sort of makes you wonder what he looks like, doesn't it?

Inside the Box

Art director Omondi Abudho excels in thinking inside the box in his unique and entertaining resume. Mr. Abudho designed his resume to look like a pre-press proof for a cardboard cereal box.

The details on the proof displays the familiar color registry patches along with "nutritional cereal information" about the percentages of skill sets he has.

A Reversal of Fortune

The majority of resumes are printed on plain, white bond paper. Perhaps you want to make your resume stand out but are a bit concerned about going too overboard. If this is the case, consider reversing out your resume from black on white to white on black.

Ryan Thomas used a gray to black gradient. The effect is understated but very professional looking.
