In the previous post we have talked about how important the design of a resume can be. You need to give your resume design a good look to get the job you want.That is your primary resume objective. A good resume design gives you the chance to get attention and get hired, as on the other hand a bad resume design gives you a one way ticket to the trash can. This post is to show you how creative designers user their knowledge to spice up their resume design in a positive way. Take a look at the selected graphic design resumes and use them for inspired. I also recommend that you take a look at the related post to resume designs for more creative inspiration.

1.Resume of Caleb Frank

This designer resume is from  Caleb Frank. It is a 2 section resume with some really nice color picks. The left section contains more contact related information such as email, phone and address. The right side on the other hand contains professional – work related information. What i like at most in this resume design is that ordered everything by the information importance, giving accent to work experience and education. I can say that this is a very cool resume sample and if you want to see more images of it, visit this link – Resume of Caleb Frank.

2.Resume of Martin Dhote

It is a green and grey resume example with some nice texture. The education section is presented in a very nice way using a time line. The experience section shows the present work at the top, following the past work experiences. The last section is the software knowledge and the designer used spot and empty circles to show graphically his professional knowledge. All in one i can say that this is a good resume sample that you need to take in to account. If you want to see the original source of this resume design visit the link – Resume of Martin Dhote.

3.Resume of Surabhi Wadhwa

This is a good resume sample that belongs to graphic designer Surabhi Wadhwa. All the sections are well organized and structured. The designer gave importance to certain information by adding different color or by using graphic elements. He has placed his information at the top, followed by work experience and education. Everything is organized really good, with no excess of elements and color. If you want to see more images of this graphic designer resume sample, visit the link – Resume design of Surabhi Wadhwa.

4.Resume of Sven Kaiser

This we have simplistic, clean and chronological resume design. The designer has placed his logo, name and profession at the top right with a small picture of him at the top right. Then with some nice created icons and structured data he presents his long and impressive work experience. He has splited the work experience in two sections: on the left side you can see the companies that he has worked for and on the right side his duties and work expectations. After the work experience comes the education and at the bottom he has used client companies that he has worked for as a reference for his quality and professionalism. I just want to say that this is an eye catching sample, one of the best resume ever. If you want to see more images of this resume design, visit his behance profile – Resume of Sven Kaiser.

5.Resume of Dana Tepper

It is a 2 colored good resume example with some icons and logo at the top. All the information is scattered around the paper but work experience and education dominate the top section. What she had added also to her resume is her training in graphic related software, skills and personal achievements. That rounds up everything in to one great designed resume that will get you a job. If you want to take a look at her design resume or download it for reference, visit this link – Resume Dana Tepper.

 6.Resume of James Lafuente

Another example of a good resume with some big text showing each section of it. What he did first is adding all of his contact information at the top. From there, top to bottom he has showed his education, work experience, software knowledge and skills. What he did in his sample is he added importance to his education because of the lack of work experience. He simple realized that 1 year of work experience is not enough to impress his future employer, so the accent went on his studies. It simple shows that most of the time you can present yourself really good with what you have and a good design.
