  • These are awful. As a senior designer, I wouldn’t consider any of these people for a position, and it’s not because I don’t like “individual” cv’s, it’s simply that the examples you use here are examples of appalling design. The toolkit and poster have at least been designed by someone with some grasp of aesthetics, but the rest are plain ugly.

    Send your cv as a one page word file, and don’t waste people’s time with frilly crap like the stuff you see above. Seriously. It WILL get you noticed, in a very bad way…

  • Maybe the contents of these resumes aren’t the best, but A+ for the overall ideas. I’d consider these applicants first. But, can’t say the same for other up-tight hiring managers who are a-holes.

  • […] Creative presentation – send your resume and cover letter to the recruiter or hiring in a creative package. In my past life as a Recruiter, I received a resume and cover letter packaged in a decorative box with a CD-ROM and a handwritten note of introduction from the applicant. The CD contained the applicant’s portfolio as a slideshow and audio explaining the projects they had worked on for a Graphic Designer position I had open. It definitely made me take notice and I gave the applicant a call as it was the only one that I had received that way. Here are some other examples, take a page from the 25 Most Creative Designer Resumes You Will See This Year. […]

  • Hey guys! what’s the best software to use to create such amazing Resumes? I’m guessing InDesign,Photoshop. But my old laptop won’t let me install the full Adobe master collection so are there any other programes I could use to create a professional yet creative resume? cheers

  • nicknackdesign- look for an older version of those programs. Not only are they more likely to work on your older laptop, you might even find them for free or close to free.

  • […] to differentiate, but ‘colouring in’ your CV is not the way to do it. Outside of creative industries, err on the side of caution and go with a colour palette no one can complain about. That is black […]

  • Warning: Use with Caution.

    These resumes look great – well most of them – however I would suggest they be used when applying for ‘creative’ jobs only. I must stress use with caution as I doubt many employers would take them seriously.

    However with Social Media etc so prevalent today, we may see more creative resumes, video resumes etc.

  • Very creative, but your resume is any potential employer’s first impression of you and some of these just say sloppy. Unfortunately the Recycled one also has computer spelled wrong twice under Education. It’s extremely important to proofread any resume!

  • It’s always best to show your best work. Don’t try to impress with a cv, try to impress with a strong portfolio! These cvs are largely inappropriate for anything but a page of curiosities on a website like this.

  • It’s a shame that iPads don’t support Flash. I can’t see half of the creative CVs that are posted!

  • […] Be creative. Looking at resume examples and using a resume template builder like ResumeHUB are great ways to […]
