Resumes, CV‘s and Self Branding is an important process of every designer. That is the first moment you leave an impression to your future employer, client or business partner. But the most important thing is that the your self branding will create an impact on the person you are contacting. The question: Is it going to create a positive or negative impact?
That is the question that you need to ask your self every time you create a resume, cv or self branding material. To create a good impact, your resume or cv needs to be well organized with some nice and clean graphics. Don’t flood your resume with unnecessary elements just to show how good designer you are. Overflooding your resume can only get your resume in the trash. And always add information relevant to your job description and the things you do, meaning if someone needs an illustrator don’t pump up your resume with information on how good you are at 3d Max or Maya. I do hope you get the picture. This is one of the many reasons why i have created this post, just to show you how people managed to create awesome resumes and cv’s and presenting themselves in the brightest light. Enjoy.
