Before and After: Resume Re-Design

Stop employers in their tracks and get noticed.

This project involved taking a standard text resume and elevating it to an eye-catching, professional level. I used my design skills and also my ability to improve the copy (text) to be the most effective and concise that it can be.

This resume was too long at two pages. The amount of words needed to be cut down and re-written to showcase the best accomplishments and skills of this person. I crafted the narrative of the resume to tell the story of a rising star in her industry.

Naturally, such an accomplished candidate requires a clean, impactful design. I used my skills to design a resume that would stop employers in their tracks and take notice. The fonts are indicative of the candidate's personality and are appropriate for the industry niche that she is seeking placement in.

This candidate received several interviews within a few weeks, and each employer had remarked upon her great looking resume.
