Creative professionals often use their CV and online portfolio to show off skills to potential clients. For this reason, it is possible to find really amazing and highly creative CV designs. I believe that good examples of CVs created by e.g. designers can serve a useful inspiration for anyone working in the creative space.
There different techniques available to stand out and make an effective and lasting impression. Some designers use illustrations such as drawings of themselves. Other add graphics that e.g. visualize their experience on a timeline or as progress bars. Another cool and popular effect is to change the orientation of the text or to add cool textures and awesome bold typography. Some even look inspired by the highly popular infographics trend. Now time to dive into the examples I have found for you. Please let me know in a comment if you have a favorite.
