Infographic or illustrative resumes are quickly becoming a must-have in a graphic designer’s arsenal. As a first point-of contact for a designer, illustrative resumes allow designers to show off their skill and standout from the rest. Competition is a beast for web and graphic designers! And what’s the best way to showcase your personality and skill but through your resume.
For me, outside of my portfolio site, which I decided to painstakingly hand code without any WYSIWYG ( a prayer and dream, is all I had), I found creating my infographic resume to be both pleasure and pain. My goal in creating my resume was to align with my portfolio site yet show off my personality and vibrancy. I didn’t want it to have the feeling of a traditional resume, but I wanted it to have functionality all the same.
