Very creative, but very outdated 4 Aug. 2000
By nausicaa - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book has some of the most beautiful, interesting looking resumes I've ever seen. I don't know if fancy resumes with tonnes of graphics actually work or not, but if you are going into Visual Arts field (esp. design), this is worth checking out. These resumes are sure to catch attention. On the other hand, the contents of resumes are unbelievably outdated - they are all from 80's. Many resumes include their marital status, headshots, and all other sort of things we never put on a resume in year 2000. Look at the designs, but get another book on how to WRITE an updated millenium resume!

Skip this one 1 Feb. 2007
By crrlygrrl - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is in serious need of an update! Perhaps back in 1985 this was the definitive source on resumes for creative professionals. Although even then, I doubt it. It is pretty obvious that this book was published in the era before personal computers. Most of the resumes use courier for their typeface and many have random clipart all over the place. It is now 2007, if you sent one of these resumes to a design firm you would be the laughing stock of the industry. The author stresses the importance of color and yet the book is published in black and white. There are probably about two acceptable resumes in this book. I'm so glad that I checked this book out of the library instead of purchasing it. If I were you, I'd skip this one.
Could Have Been a Terrific Overview 17 April 2009
By Gary Roberto - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had purchased this book years ago when it had been first purchased as a booklet. The author has drawn upon the base booklet and expanded it into a full "volume", yet the prose content has not grown at all. Most of the visual examples are circa the 1970s, which is a total disappointment as so much has evolved in graphic design since the 1970s!

If you're looking for idea starters you may find them here. But, if you're looking for something to mimic, that may be of the times, this book is truly disappointing.

I really wish that I could offer a better response, but the book is not worth the paper it is printed on.

There are many better ideas to be found (and in full color) simply by using goggle to search for "designer resumes" or "new media resumes" or similar terms.

Perhaps it is because I knew the author's original work (which was avant gard at the time) that I was SO very disappointed in what is shown here. You're better off spending your money and time elsewhere.

This is a very inspiring text. Although the images are a bit outdated, the layout ideas are fantastic. The key, of course, is the number of excellent images that help the reader understand the components of an excellent resume layout. I recommend this text for any person in a creative profession, not just graphic designers.

Gives wonderful example of resumes and helps a person realize what a person needs to include in a resume and figure out what you need to make your resume tell your story by have worksheets for you to fill out and decide what is important and maybe even realize that you have a skill you never realized you had.
