My new resume

Post by Pyronix on Wed Sep 14, 2011 12:29 am

After struggling for quite some time to find a STEADY FREAKIN JOB THANK YOU VERY MUCH BUSH ADMINISTRATION in the design field, I all but gave up.

After a while, I was sitting bored at home and thought to myself. What if I designed my own resume?

3 sketches, a few hundred brush packs, some illustrator doodles, a failed robot-stickman war theme, and about 75 layers later, I came up with this little number.









I was aiming to keep it clear and concise, but have some and fun and creativity in there, plus my own little take on modern business design.

After googling graphic design resumes, I've found out this is actually a growing trend, not just with designers, but with all industries as well. Obviously someone applying to be an engineer won't have a resume as graphics heavy as mine, but allot of people have taken to bending the rules of the classic resume.


So.......whats you're take on this? Would you hire me were you an art director? Do you think you're resume could use a creative touch?

I'd definitely consider you above people who are equally qualified but did a plain and boring black-text-on-white-paper resume. You're applying for an art-related job after all. You'd get bonus points for the idea alone, and more bonus points for the execution because it looks pretty swell.

I'm not an artist myself though, so I can only give you an average-man-from-the-street opinion.

I'm not a professional by any means as the people already here know, but I'll give it a shot. Overall I like it and with a nice print quality this could turn out well however there are some things that imo are a little off. First off to be a little more professional visual cliches like sunburts and random swirls are avoidable, for this reason I prefer the second footer over the first. As well regarding font. The font used for the body text is just slightly too stylized to be used as plain jane easily readable text for an important document like a resume. Lastly the icons of what you do are great if you want them to be the focal point of the page but they could us a style adjustment to match the rest of the resume. Great job Pyro!

I tried changing the icons, the only problem is those are the actual program icons. Once I change the anything, I'm afraid the prospective employer won't recognize them enough to tell what it is. They stick out like a sore thumb though. I was thinking of dimming them out a bit.

As for fonts, I'll look for a more suitable one that I can still keep small.

I'll probably tone down the hippy crap too, I'm trying to hit that middle ground between "childish creativity" and "professional design".

@ DigDog

Thanks bro! I was hoping to attract some more interviews with a little something brighter.

YOU LIVE IN QUEENS?

But in all seriousness I think it looks pretty good. I agree with Darre's comments. The only thing that I'm really critical of besides those is the header on the second sheet: it seems like you have a little too much translucent text around it. I would get rid of your phone number there and put it on full opacity on the upper-right hand corner of the page in a straight line. Also, maybe get rid of the "002" or "+2.0" bits as well, just so your name pops a little more. I mean, really, you could just increase the opacity and leave the phone number where it is, getting rid of a different graphical element on the header: there's just too much there right now. I like the stickmen a lot.

Also, your phrasing and sentence structure on the first sheet needs work.

I like it, but I'm no artist, I'm closer to writer. Therefore, I believe you should either change mam to ma'am, the proper abbreviation, or to flat out madam. Madam may seem a bit too businesslike, but it needs to change grammatically. Overall, looks like great work! Fun to read about you in it.

Well... I'd make another plain-copy, to be on the safe side. If the person considering you is considerably older, I'm not sure this would fit their taste of tradition. That aside, I love the take on it.

I have a black and white one with just the footer/header stationary designs for "regular"
jobs.

Less like a design and more like a company letter head really.

Aesthetics are overrated. I say you write your resume on crumpled college-ruled paper. Much more classy.
You also typed "technoligy" instead of "technology".
