As I embark into a new chapter of my design career I decided to delve back into the resume to give it a refreshing makeover. As you know, the resume of a graphic designer must communicate his or her style and approach to design. It is very similar to the story of the three bears: something too static and ordinary won’t do; something too busy and complicated will confuse and land the resume in the trash bin; a design that’s captivating, clean and balanced however could at least land you an interview. Below are different stages of my resume from stale and boring to my latest version that’s inspired by Miami Art Deco design. The text is slightly askew to bring attention to the resume itself and the written words of the resume have gone from passive descriptions of duties performed to aggressive, action verbs that describe how different stages of my career were impacted by my unique approach to graphic design. Let’s hope the revitalized resume lands me a new full-time position soon!
