Creative Resumes Revisited Part II

queen-elizabeth-ii1Less Bling---Works Great
In our previous articles about creative resumes for graphic designers, we've seen some imaginative and inspired examples of resumes that are "outside the box."

Some of the resumes were quite flamboyant, but not everyone wants to design their resumes that way.

You can put the design principles you have learned from your graphic design school to use by creating a professional looking resume that is more subdued, but can distinguish itself from other "plain Jane" resumes.
.
In part 2 of this series, we'll show you some examples that are distinctive but more low-key when compared to high-profile resume designs.

Simple Graphics

What can you do to make a standard looking resume more noticeable without going over the top?

Ryan Gilden, a graphic designer, has added a simple circle motif to highlight the general appearance of the document.

The pastel colors work well and the contact information is offset through the use of maroon colored text and his logo.

What, No Color?

Colin Nederkoom put together this resume template with only black text.

The placement of text, selection of different fonts and sizes, the effective use of negative space and the inclusion of a small graphic design element in the upper right-hand corner gives a very clean and professional presentation, which is pleasing to the eye.

Where Everyone Knows Your Name

Managers and human resource representatives conduct interviews and see many people a day. Sometimes remembering a person's name can be a problem because of the volume of applicants.

Sara Rohacik has elected to use her name as a stylized graphic element in her resume.

Although the concept is simple, it is an effective method in setting her resume apart from others, while also making her name memorable.
