Layout Design & Information Heirarchy


I love getting a chance to redesign resumes. I think it’s a really exciting time in people’s lives and generally, a boost to the resume is a boost to their self esteem, which can only be positive for the job search ahead. This week I helped two friends with their cv’s and I had fun creating a look that represented their industry and personality, while also making it easy to read for the interviewer.

For Alex, I designed several options - one simplified high level (title and company) version with room for a into and a list of skills. I like to let my resume read easily and then have my website or LinkedIn profile fill in. But that doesn’t work for everyone so it was fun to think about ways to organize and simplify a lot of copy.
