A creative resume or curriculum vitae is one document you can’t skimp – and this is true for anyone but especially designers and other creative professionals. When applying for a job, the first impression you create is the strongest and longest lasting one. The same is true when making contact with a new potential client. That first impression has to help you stand out from your competitors.
Most of the time, that first impression is made online via an online application, your website, an email, or even social media. Hopefully, you already have a strong website, either a personal portfolio or your freelance business site. And hopefully your social media pages continue your personal or business brand look and feel. But what about your resume?
