Create a Grid Based Resume/CV Layout in InDesign This post was originally published in 2009 The tips and techniques explained may be outdated. Use the power of grid based designs to create a structured and professional page layout in InDesign, which can then be populated with a range of information to produce a polished CV or Resume. I was recently invited to participate in the Steven Stevenson challenge over at Smashing Magazine. The goal was to produce a CV or Resume layout for a fictional character using the details supplied. My approach was to create a minimal two colour design that showcased Mr. Stevenson’s sophisticated Graphic Design skills through a clean and structured layout. Let’s go back through the process of creating the document, and see how the initial grid layout was produced. Being a design aimed more towards print, and one that concentrates on the fine grid details, we’ll use Adobe InDesign as the application of choice. With the basic document set up, go to Layout > Margins and Columns.
TheBodyShop Mexico ¿Qué es el comercio ético? El concepto de comercio ético se basa en que tanto marcas, vendedores como proveedores se responsabilicen de las condiciones laborales de la gente que produce los productos que vende. Se trata de garantizar que los trabajadores reciban un trato justo, digno y con respeto. La pasión que ponemos en nuestro compromiso con los derechos humanos siempre ha dado forma a la manera en la que nos relacionamos con la gente que nos abastece en todo el mundo. Creamos unas sólidas relaciones con los proveedores y trabajamos juntos para garantizar que el comercio ético sea parte fundamental de nuestro negocio, y también del suyo. Creemos que esta es la forma de realizar negocios. Lo que hacemos En 1998, fuimos uno de los socios fundadores de la iniciativa de comercio ético (Ethical Trading Initiative).

How To Create A Great Web Design CV and Résumé? Advertisement The economy is bad. No one’s job is really 100% safe, so it’s time we all bucked up and got our recession bags packed (just in case!). This flimsy one-page document is more important than many people think: the résumé is the first portfolio piece that potential employers see, and if they’re not impressed, chances are they won’t look at the rest of your portfolio. The Steve Stevenson Challenge Everyone likes a competition. Steven Stevenson, a fictional Web designer, doesn’t have a résumé. And in no particular order, here are the contestants’ entries! Contest Entries Sam Brown made a real effort to distinguish between the three main components of Steve Stevenson’s life and adds a touch of personality with some handwritten text and highlighting. Ali Felski‘s design is beautiful and simple, but manages to convey Steve Stevenson’s strong design skills. Sarah Parmenter goes with a solid yellow background and a very prominent photo of Steven Stevenson (who is quite cute!). 1. 2. 3.
7 Tips For Creating a Print-Based Design Portfolio This is a bold statement, but building a portfolio is quite tricky because everyone seems to have a differing opinion on how it should be done. Building a portfolio is about showcasing your work and therefore, it should be an expression of your personality and design style. Most online articles tend to offer advice on just web-based portfolios. I’ve found that information addressing print portfolios is sorely lacking even though many design programs still require them to graduate. Though PDF and web-based portfolios are becoming more acceptable, I still believe that nothing takes the place of a well-executed print portfolio that a potential client or employer can physically hold and flip through during a meeting. What steps can you take to make your print portfolio your absolute best? Get as much professional work in your portfolio as soon as possible. I’ve now been out of school for about a year and in that time, I have replaced nearly every class-initiated project with client work.
