25 Examples of Super Creative Resume Design


In today’s job market, it sometimes takes a little extra ingenuity to get noticed. We’ve heard of people printing their resume on florescent paper, sending baked goods along with a cover letter, even buying online ads or renting billboards to promote themselves. While we don’t always recommend such extreme approaches (read up on Aleksey Vayner’s “Nothing is Impossible” video resume to see why), we have to admire the creativity of these 25 resume designs:

1. Film reel resume

 

2. 3-D resume

 

3. Flyer resume

 

4. T-shirt resume

 

5. Board game resume

 

6. Photobooth resume

7. Photo collage resume

 

8. Folded mini resume

 

9. Foldup resume

 

10. Fabric resume

 

11. Infographic resume

 

12. Vinyl record-themed resume

 

13. Office-inspired resume

 

14. Magazine cover resume

 

15. Comic resume

 

16. Notebook page resume

    I really liked the Film Reel and Flyer designs. Both very catchy and succinct! Has definitely given me some ideas to for redesigning my resume, thanks!

    • Nathan Nash on the 5th June

      I agree the Flyer design is my favorite as well. Some of these break some of the cardinal rules of resume design which could potentially piss off employers. The fabric one for example might be obnoxious to scan. Large background images would also require a lot of toner as well and could make an employer think twice about photocopying a resume and passing it along. Also I would never hire someone who would even think to use papyrus as a type face for a magazine title. It would’ve been nice for an analysis of each resume, nice collection otherwise.

    • om on the 19th October

      I also agree with Chris Gummer, I liked both resume styles. these are really unique and abstract designs.

    • Kyle on the 30th January

      So, I was researching these sites for creative resumes. I found this site OrangeResume.com they make creative resumes for you. The thing is I am trying to get a job as a postal worker, do you thing resumes like these can be too much for a government job?

    • Grant Newton on the 7th July

      This article was okay….but I like what Business Insider had to say on this topic.

  2. h1brd on the 3rd June

    Excellent examples, very creative and inspiring stuff….now go and re-create your own CV ^_^

  3. Nicki on the 3rd June

    What do you think hiring managers think when they get these. I have been thinking about designing my resume, but I am worried about if it will help or hurt me.

    • Russ on the 3rd June

      I am sure it will only help. Anything that stands out is good. As long as it is easy to read.

    • Susan Johnston on the 4th June

      Doing something unexpected with your resume can have a big pay-off or it could backfire depending on the person. I think it really depends on the job and the company. (Uber-creative ad agency? It could fly. Accounting job at a more conservative company? Probably not.)

  4. Simon Kirby on the 3rd June

    I loved them. But I do worry they might get a “that guy’s too crazy and out there” response from a recruiter. I guess it all depends on whether the hiring manager is looking for creative brilliance or just a “safe” hire.

  5. RyJek on the 4th June

    Awesome list, was actually looking for stuff like that several times now and also was finishing with the same, semi-satisfying result.
    Good article.

  6. awesome examples. love the flyer cv and emergency cv the most

  7. Ramkumar Shankar on the 4th June

    Great round-up. I’ve been meaning to re-design my resume for awhile now. Some good ideas here to get me started. Thanks.

    • ChrisHerself on the 30th November

      It’s not nit picky at all. Papyrus is a horridly inappropriately- and overly-used font, and using it on a graphics resume pretty much screams “DO NOT HIRE THIS TACKY AMATEUR!” The only worse offense would be Comic Sans.

  8. Bree on the 4th June

    Okay, these are really great, but the one who used Papyrus for their font … eek!
    I know it’s nit picky, but that font has got to go!

    • Greg on the 5th April

      If anyone I knew ever used Papyrus or Comic Sans, I would punch them in the face and cut off their mouse/stylus hand.

    • Nyssa on the 28th July

      Yeah, I would never hire the guy with the Papyrus font as a magazine editor. The actual information is sparse, the text is riddled with errors and inconsistencies that any editor worth his or her salt would never have typed (let alone pass into print), and the magazine cover itself is tacky and ill designed.

      Basically, if you’re trying to break into an industry, learn a little bit of the industry standards first.

  9. Meira on the 4th June

    Wow these are rockin! I can’t wait to redesign my resume, i’ve been totally inspired.

  10. Amanda Collins on the 5th June

    These are really beautiful examples of how to stand out and attract attention. As a résumé writer, I would caution that, as the writer pointed out, you should know your audience before sending something so “different.” I just had a client veto a simple, slightly gray text box on a design, so many people like plain and simple.

  11. Shane on the 5th June

    Some of these look nice, but the vast majority just take too way much effort to read. Talk to any serious employer, and they’ll tell you that your portfolio should be what showcases your design ability – they’re only looking at resumes to get a fast and easy rundown of your experience and skillset. Unfortunately, most employers would look at these and toss them aside because the information they’re really looking for just isn’t very clear.

    I’m not saying a resume shouldn’t be well-designed and attractive, but they should be designed around simplicity and readability, not crazy graphic overload. Save the wild creativity for the proper job that calls for it – and keep the resume simple and easy.

  12. Childesign on the 5th June

    Very useful. I will try to create one :)

  13. Linh Pham on the 5th June

    very creative, unlimited possibilities for resume ideas

  14. Kim on the 6th June

    Inspiring stuff!
    It’s time I really sat down and redesigned my own personal filmmaking resume
    Big Thanks :)

  15. Emmett on the 6th June

    Apart from the booklet resumes I think most of these are incredibly obnoxious and come from a really badly led 6th form college. T-shirt resume? Oh dear.

  16. e11world on the 6th June

    The only issue with some of these is that you have to actually apply in person or by hand and can’t really have it as a download on your site. It must be presented as you want and also must have an alternative version to download maybe. However, it’s nice to have something creative that stands out.

  17. Graphstock on the 6th June

    I really like the idea. I am sure you can find faster a job with such a resume

  18. John on the 6th June

    I’ve been doing freelance for some time and recently opted for a more stable job as an in-house designer for a corporation. A few months after I was hired, my boss was nice enough to include me in the hiring of a second employee. So from that perspective, these are my thoughts:

    First of all, yes, a designer’s resume very much needs to be unique and creative and more than anything else, tailored to its recipient. Because of that, a lot of these are really great ideas! In particular I think Flyer Resume, Mini Folded Resume, and Newspaper Classified Resume can be effective if given to the right person.

    The main problem I see recurring though is that sometimes the creativity is inadvertently delivering the wrong message. For example, on Infographic Resume, one of the messages I take away is that this person is an unproductive worker in the mornings and tends to not exert much energy at his job until he has been employed for over a year.

  19. Susan Greene on the 6th June

    I once nailed an interview because I submitted my resume with a note that said I could take the ball and run with it. I enclosed both with a ball in a small box. On the ball I wrote my name and phone number.

  20. Stephy on the 6th June

    I’m all for something that stands out from the Times New Roman design with 0.5″ indents, but some of these seem a little extreme. For someone seeking a design position, the idea shouldn’t be to cram as much visual stimuli on one page; it should be to communicate clearly and effectively. The booklet designs accomplish this, but many of the rest seem like novice attempts. If you want a professional position, design yourself the part.

  21. Giorgos on the 8th June

    Great post. My favourite is no. 4. I will try one of these for sure.

  22. PsdDude on the 8th June

    Interesting ideas! I saw once a resume in flash beautiful done but i can’t remember the page :)

  23. bkeily on the 8th June

    Thanks for sharing. I agree the job one is shooting for would be a major factor on whether or not to let the creative juices fly on your next resume.

  24. James Ballard on the 8th June

    Nice round up. Before ‘over’ designing your resume, you need to make sure it will be well received. Most creative agencies/shops will love it, but you run the risk of it getting panned and the rest of your work won’t matter at that point.

    If you are super talented, it really doesn’t matter what it looks like.

  25. Jason on the 8th June

    “The Writer” Magazine resume. I would have thrown this in the trash if I were the person hiring for this and had even a little bit of design sense. I can’t believe this was included. Yes, the idea is good, but the execution is horrible! I have designed magazines for more than 5 years now and I don’t think even my first was that bad.

    As for the rest of ‘em, nice work and inspiration!

  26. Magento on the 8th June

    All of these designs are both eye catching and appealing.Something about the passport resume just speaks to me. Thank you for sharing this! Incredible work.

  27. FeryKloucek on the 9th June

    Very nice collection of resumes.. I think it’s really good for designers to stand out of the crowd with such a presentation! Thanks for inspiration!

  28. Chandrasekar on the 9th June

    Its really nice collection of work… Thanks for those awesome resumes…
    i really like it….

  29. Gerald on the 10th June

    I agree with Shane. And I’m surprised more people haven’t also commented about the readability of these designs. When an employer has numerous resumes to *scan* through, a graphically heavy or oddly shaped resume is deadly.

    Good design is key for standing out. But strange shapes, colors and textures make storage and handling cumbersome, if not annoying.

    A better solution? Focus on readability using typography and color to standout from the crowd.

    Want to show off your *graphic* designs on your resume? Display your website address in bold, ultra large type on the page in a unique (but readable) way. This will help your resume stand out from the rest visually while piquing the reader’s interest about your portfolio online. They’ll probably take a look.

  30. Sam Garfield on the 15th June

    Here’s mine: http://samgarfield.com. Hasn’t failed me yet!

  31. Oli Thurtle on the 18th June

    Some of these just aren’t very legible and don’t function very well at all. An employer probably spends approx 30 second on a CV- if they can’t read it well, or even have to decipher it, it just going to be put in the bin.

    I’ve always been taught to just use clean simple typography, black on white- its a functioning document, it shouldn’t really be used to showcase your design skills- your PDF portfolio should do that…

  32. Steven Knurr on the 21st June

    When I did mine, I took inspiration from the cork bulletin board I had been staring at across from me…

  33. Bikash on the 25th June

    Extermely nice collection of idea to build your own CV. By seeing all the collection I have to think about my cv but also I have to think, it will be a good idea in presenting a cv like that or not.

  34. Billy on the 11th July

    Resume is cool. I’m just going to use later.

  35. Josh Simmons on the 16th July

    They all look awesome, but it is in one’s portfolio that I look for awesome and creativity. If your résumé isn’t clean, concise, and all the information easy to find, then it will be the cool résumé that doesn’t get you hired.

  36. Duncan on the 27th July

    Well designed resumes are awesome. I love the infographic style. In fact, I found the Michael Anderson one so inspirational I had a go at doing an infographic CV myself. Was great fun to do. Recommend it to everybody ;)

  37. kiran kemni on the 5th August

    A big round of applause for your work,but its quite doubtfull if recruiter also feel the same way……

  38. Tizzle on the 13th August

    This is really awesome. I wasn’t sure how far you could push resumes and cover letters, but this has inspired me to really try out some new stuff. Great post.

  39. Justin Goldberg on the 13th August

    These are great, but not possible in google docs. I do everything on the web.

  40. debra feldman on the 14th August

    Terrific samples showing how a resume can demonstrate a candidate’s skills and their potential. Maybe these do not address every thing an employer may need to determine if an individual is a good fit but they each attract attention which is job number one of a resume or career marketing document. These type of inforgraphics are a good way to pique interest, differentiate yourself and show your work- they are not traditional, but chances are that these candidates are not really interested in meeting with prospective employers who can’;t appreciate what these creations represent. I think it is all about show don’t tell and these definitely demonstrate creativity, talent, skills. They are just part of what an employer needs to know about a potential new team member, but IMHO, there is enough information to get a meaningful dialogue started- the goal that I think is the main objective of a resume- not to report but to spike interest and inspire conversation,

  41. debra feldman on the 14th August

    Would like to follow comments

  42. Miss Branded on the 5th September

    Great collection! Thanks!

    Yes, it’s important to consider the job and recipient of your creativity. I just designed an over-the-top 3D resume for a client and paired it with a ‘tame’ version of the information for more conservative employers.

    However, I dare to suggest that, if you are bold enough to want to make a wild and stand-out resume, you should use it – and only apply to employers who appreciate that ‘go-big’ quality in you!

  44. Bill on the 31st October

    check this out @ http://www.yucesoy.com I liked this inspirational piece…

  45. Alexandra on the 12th November

    These are all very unique and creative ideas! I am partial to the mini-folded and the office inspired resumes. If I were a graphic artist, I would definitely use some of the others, no matter how bold, because they do grab attention. I can’t see myself ever wanting to the use the t-shirt or notebook inspired ones though. Thanks for the post!

  46. Preston Racette on the 5th December

    This is really awesome! Great inspiration!

  47. Craig Stapley on the 8th January

    These resumes are great. Thought I would throw mine out there for praise, bashing or criticism. Here is a link to it :: http://stapleydesign.com/resume_2011.pdf

    Thanks, Craig

    • stasha on the 1st August

      Hey craig, just checked out your resume and wanted to let you know that I loved it. Got a pet peave tho. On the bottom left under GOALS you use the words “I GUESS” and “I THINK”. “I GUESS” is wishy washy and “I THINK” is irrelevant because without those words the fact remains “most people at their cores want to do something that matters” stands on its own in the sentence without starting the sentence with “I think”. If you eliminate both “I GUESS” and “I THINK” from your script it will read stronger and give us an impression of you as the leader you are. The other option would be to replace “I THINK” with something more powerful like “I firmly believe”, or “I have found” or “history shows”. Of course it goes without saying that the words “I GUESS” need to be totally removed from the document. Besides my pet peaves i loved it and wanted to offer kudosfor a job well done. You are on the right track and with these simple changes I know that you will really make an impact with what you have created. Blessings on your job hunt

  48. CV Examples on the 22nd January

    Awesome collections, gonna bookmark this for later use. Thanks!

  49. Jobs Reatail on the 22nd January

    Hi. Examples are butiful. I never think resume like this can be done. I am impressed.
    But 15 is best.
    Thanks. Best regards

  50. Matt on the 22nd January

    Some are interesting, some are…. Well I wouldn’t hand them in.

    Be careful about putting too much personal information or a picture on the resume like some of the examples. To avoid any possible bias or discrimination HR migh just toss them.

  51. Donnatella on the 1st February

    I think these ideas and designs are great. There’s just one thing that bothers me. Everyone who has advised me on creating a resume has stressed to keep it simple. Black or blue New Times Roman font on a white background. Anything other than this is a resume killer unless you’re applying for an extremely creative position.

    I was thinking of doing my updated resume as a PowerPoint presentation.

  52. Jeff Winter on the 22nd March

    You really have to pick your spots when using untraditional designs. If you have the opportunity to present a resume in person (which is becoming more rare) there may be benefit. Most companies, however, are going to a more automated process where the ATS (Applicant Tracking System) is parsing information off of the resume for recruiters to search. If you use image files, tables, borders, etc… the ATS may not pick up the info and your ‘electronic visibility’ goes down. Pick your spots wisely!

  53. Vivek Dhande on the 4th May

    Really awesome examples. Personally flyer CV and Stacked graphic resume are favorite one.

  54. zeena on the 16th May

    it is good idea and i think the best one the flyer resume>

  55. ogee on the 21st May

    This must be a joke. These all strike me as silly and unprofessional. I’d bet that using a resume like these will eliminate you from consideration from 95% of potential employers. Avoid these ridiculous toy resumes like the plague.

  56. Michelle Dumas on the 22nd May

    I’m a professional resume writer and am preparing for an industry conference where I will be speaking on creative resume formats. I happened on this site through a web search.

    This is definitely a great list of some very creative resumes! I really like many of them (some more than others) and used in the right way with the right employers I have to believe that they would definitely stand out and get attention, and that they would spark enough interest that the employer would definitely pick up the phone and call to schedule an interview. That is, after all, the true test of an effective resume–the quality and quantity of interviews generated.

    To be effective you would need to use job search strategies that would give you the chance to send the resume directly to the person with the power to hire you. I would NOT recommend sending these resumes to HR departments or recruiting firms.

    The major items these resumes leave out that most effective resumes have are the hiring motivators – the accomplishments that illustrate how they will make the employer money, save them money, save time, solve problems, etc. If these were my clients, I would also recommend that they have a resume prepared in a more traditional format that they could bring with them to interviews and to use in other situations where the creative format was inappropriate. Keep in mind that a traditional resume doesn’t have to be boring, though. Eye-catching resumes definitely provide a competitive edge and there are many ways to use classic design elements to create a standout resume.

  57. Wilemutt on the 13th June

    I like the concept and really love Donatella’s idea from a few months ago about doing PowerPoint resumes. There are gob of them out there. Check out slideshare.net and type in resumes in the search box. Some of the ones I looked at here are interesting, but cripes, folks, use proper grammar and be sure to spell check your documents. The Flyer has a space before the comma right up front. Proofread!

  58. Wilemutt on the 13th June

    Sorry, I meant the Film Reel resume, not the Flyer.

  59. honour chick on the 17th July

    wow, thanks for sharing these very beautiful and creative resumes.

  60. Dave Matthews on the 18th September

    Love the resumes. Wish there were some from engineers

  61. Ken on the 19th September

    Awesome bunch of resumes. I’ve made one before myself with packaging and all that going on lol. Uploaded it on KEN.ph so guys wanna check, please do visit and comment on what you think ;)

  62. Elena on the 4th October

    Anyone whose resume “design” uses Papyrus or an illegible “handwritten” font (both of which are featured here, shame, shame) clearly does not work in graphic design. And shouldn’t, until they learn why they shouldn’t use them.

  63. Charles Richard on the 26th October

    They’re great!

    Like Craig, I post mine here:

  65. amanda on the 8th November

    wow. these are complete crap… this is what terrifies me about our industry. if you think for a second that an over-designed, gimmicky, unprofessional/amateur resume is going to get you in the door. this is nothing but junk and exactly why true professionals throw this waste of time out the door. i want to see what you have done, worked on and your experience. not try and scrap it off some photoshop layer disaster. ok i digress but seriously awful.

  66. resume examples on the 8th December

    I hope people accept such creative resumes and in fact it is a good idea. It was a great work and keep posting such pics. these will certainly inspire anyone.

    It is the great innovative concept showing what exactly example of a resume means.
    The concept is really very very nice. Everyone should try to build such a great resumes.

  68. Krista Kemp on the 22nd December

    Wow now I really feel like an idiot. The resume formats that my career advisors told me and the rest of the participants to do when I was in the empower program were so plain. No wonder I’m not getting hired any where! How does one exactly go to create their own resume design because I don’t know how. Is there a specific website or do I have to get some programs for my computer to do that? I have a mac mini computer just so you all know… Please reply back. I really want to stand out from the crowd. Thanks.

  69. steven on the 15th January

    An other concept: the Facebook’s style resume! http://www.iwebya.fr/CV

  70. Tony Markey on the 22nd January

    @Krista, I wouldn’t feel stupid just yet – as you can see from the mixed response, non-traditional resumes are far from full acceptance. In fact, most of these examples are really just resumes with less information and more graphics. It’s a very difficult thing to reconcile information with the visual presentation we all have come to expect from EVERYTHING except resumes. We’ve got a new format to check out and we’ve had great positive feedback from HR managers, but the bottom line is: keep it tasteful and relevant, not gimmicky and useless.

  73. Greg Holbert on the 3rd February

    I could’ve used this list of ideas whenever I was still in my University courses for graphic design. We had a project to create a unique resume, and I was aspiring to be a game designer before I found out how ruthless the job market was. I used one of my old Nintendo 64 cartridges and put my initials on the front with a custom-made game sticker that had my information on the back sticker. My professor kept it and shows it to other classes to this day!

  74. Luke on the 4th February

  76. Marcel on the 13th February

    Wow! I love the Tshirt idea. that would be an awesome company photo grouping.
    all individual photos of staff with their skills and awards listed on their shirt.

    I like that it is on her back for two reasons:
    1. would be tacky on the front..kind of like those “made you look tshirts:
    2. on the back is a great metaphor for all the work she did in her past to be where she is today.

    Fantastic!

    I would like to know how did you create them?Which software did you use?

  78. Mohit on the 24th March

    Lovely list. All creatives are good. I would like to say, in coming days, people would like these very much because the world is now in the fashion mode.

    Excellent for graphic designers, architect, writers etc

    Resumes. Double spaced Times Roman. Legibility and ease of note taking are key when interviewing people.

  82. Pran Peter on the 8th July

    It seems to be a good trend to have now. Yes, a picture is worth thousand words. I also stumbled on a new site called http://www.pictocv.com. It is very promising to see these new companies coming up with creative ideas.

    It is most important to see proper use of information visualization techniques. It may not be useful to create a graphic just for the heck of it. It should be able to tell a story with ample oomph.

  83. jeff890 on the 19th July

    Awesome collection, I create my CV templates from brandnewcv.com, easy use and looks like it has been professional designed! Cheers

  85. The Red Baron on the 2nd September

    For all the people commenting about how this is too much, resumes are supposed to be simple, and so one, you’re right – to a point. For at least 95% of people, these kinds of things are a terrible idea, because whatever your prospective job is, it probably involves being able to express things clearly and succinctly in writing, without dealing with distractions.

    For graphic designers and related professions, on the other hand, the most important thing is to be catchy and aesthetically appealing. A standard black-on-white three section CV might summarize your life’s work in greater depth than any of these, but the old adage of “show, don’t tell applies”: it’s easy to say you’re a good designer, but if you’re really a good designer, why not just prove it? If your CV shows good mastery of design principles and an aesthetic intuition, precisely whom you’ve worked for doesn’t matter much. In fact, since so much advertising is about distracting people from the facts rather than highlighting them, the ability to present information in a way that is ambiguous, unclear, or just plain liable to be ignored might even be desirable.

  86. sample resumes on the 24th September

    nice collections, it looks trendy and it seems to be more creatively designed.

  87. Peter on the 27th September

    But I don’t think human resource professionals like these kind of resumes i.e colored resumes.
    Still excellent designs I must say.
    Thanks.

    Article writing is also a fun, if you be familiar with afterward you can write if not it is complex to write.

    Awesome Resume Concepts!
    I actually made an epic Google Resume recently and turned it into a free Template here:

    I’d really love/appreciate any and all feedback I can get on it! :)

    I guess this is a really old article but as it continues to be relevant so…

    I think it’s useful for certain careers, graphic designer being probably the most relevant, however so many jobs i’ve applied for don’t even allow a graphic resume, you upload it into a profile where it seperates all the info then sends it on, so your hard work is wasted. For a graphic designer, or artist, this is another way of presenting your skills, since they don’t always translate well into words, but if you need to hire someone to make your creative resume, then you’re probably not applying for a job where it is helpful. Ease of reading is still a consideration, especially if the design is not direction related to your career.
