Curriculum Vitae by Jonny-Rocket Curriculum Vitae by Jonny-Rocket
Finally got around to uploading something! Been busy working for the man. This is my CV which I did at the beginning of the year which probably laid me the job and was great at attracting attention among several hundred applicants. Don't do MS Word resumes. Apparently they get thrown in the bin without being looked at.

The spec bar is something I decided the play around with. I quite like it, but not too sure if it goes with a project like this.

I disagree. This CV gave me 3 interviews and 2 jobs from 2007 to 2010 and both employers who recruited me said it was the cover letter that made mine stand out from the rest, which is at certainly a foot in the door…

Keep in mind design trends have evolved over the last 5 years and art is personal preference. This artwork style reflects when I was graduate in 2006 though is has evolved over the last several years and certainly doesn't reflect the art director of 2013 (my CV is different now).

Anyway, my goal for this cover letter was to appeal to creative directors at studios I was applying for. This isn't a shotgun approach to all and every job as I think you should showcase that the skills that appropriate. Hence why word.doc are a bad idea for a graphic designers CV. Since I did get work from these, I'd say it was relatively successful.

Wait, MS Word resumes get thrown in the bin? So employers WANT different? I mistakenly thought they wanted "generic". Guess that's why mine probably got shot in the trash can. Ha ha.
