One of my goals for 2017 is to get out of my Adobe Illustrator rut and start using InDesign more to become more comfortable with the program. I figured the best place to start would be giving my resume a little TLC and give it a fresh design. I am currently redesigning my personal logo and website, so a new resume is part of the refresh.
Here is a picture of my old resume (circa 2013). It's not TERRIBLE, but the typography became muddy and it is hard to read in certain areas. I want to improve legibility and organize my information better. My personality and personal design tastes have also shifted since designing this old resume, and I want this new resume to be a better reflection of me.
I recently refreshed my logo and color palette. It has a similar vibe to my old brand, but I like to think it's less stiff and better reflects the level of "chill" I have achieved since graduating. My old resume feels stuffy and stiff. Not me at all. Below is a little board that I threw together while brainstorming some of my new design elements. Hopefully I can use some of this in the new redesigned resume.
