Creation of Unconventional CV

Below I will present screenshots of my development in the creation of the Unconventional CV created within InDesign.

The file represents a Restaurant/ Cafe menu illustrated in my own graphic style. Features have been inspired by many existing menus placed in my previous standard CV blog post. Such as my original CV, I used most of the same information, just in a more elaborate role playing style.

The images placed are taken from my Instagram profile, and are all created by myself. They represent ‘what’s on offer’, with pricing to imitate the menu theme. The written information represents my skills and deliverables I bring or could bring to a potential client and employer. Instead of a price listed next to the menu items, a scale from 1-10 is written, to show how effective my service is at that trait.

Overall I am very pleased with this outcome. The graphic style is original, and a menu format is conveyed. I could potentially use this for a real life situation. Because of this I will definitely put this PDF on my LinkedIn profile along with my original CV. A link to the final product is placed below.
