My Resume by montia My Resume by montia
My resume.


***Update***

The body font is now in helvetica- wanted to use a font most computers have.


***Update***

A few popular websites and blogs link to this resume and I have come across some blatant rip offs of my design and logo. So I want to make it clear:
_________________________________________________________________________________________
_________________________________________________________________________________________
_________________________________________________________________________________________
_________________________________________________________________________________________

YOU MAY NOT USE MY RESUME AND LOGO AS YOUR OWN. YOU ALSO MAY NOT ALTER MY LOGO AND RESUME AND USE IT AS YOUR OWN. I DO NOT SEND OUT TEMPLATES.

I'm a graphic design major and have come across many websites that both say this is a good way to go about my resume with design and it's also a bad way to go. seeing as you're in the field I was wanting to hear it from someone in the field. Is it a good idea to design your resume instead of just labeling information black and white?

Hi Montia,

My name is Eko Andri (so I wont ever use the logo :)), just want to know if I can use the overall "design", it's simple, modern yet full of information there. Great job. I am using Word btw.

Regards,
Eko

hello,get over yourself. If you do not want ppl to "copy" your resume, I suggest stop using iwork and pages to create bland resume layouts. It is not that awesome but points for your self belief. (Powerpoint and Dreamweaver listed as "skills" are not helping either")

Siona- I designed my resume in Adobe Illustrator. I don't use applications like iWork or Pages for graphic design because I am a professional graphic designer and prefer to create layouts from scratch. No templates were used whatsoever and the logo was designed from scratch as well.

It seems as though many people have misunderstood that the M and paint splatter is my logo. Some people with M as their first initial have taken my logo and used it on their own resume.

I think it's good advice to always list the applications you have experience with on your resume. It seems to have worked for me very well. Every time I have sent my resume to an employer they have contacted me for an interview.

I think the body texts need a little indent. It will look better in regard to the headings, but it will also look more consistent in regard to the lists with the bullets which naturally have an indent.

You're also using typographic symbols incorrectly. To specify a range between two numbers you should use the en dash; NOT the hyphen.

I would align the information on the left stroke to one of the lines on the right. If you use InDesign you can apply a baseline grid so you won't run into "issues" like these. You should also apply more leading after the heading "Montia Garcia" and less between the two addresses. Actually, you should do that for all the text as there should be a clear distinction between header and body which is not limited to the weight difference alone.

I strongly recommend using InDesign as its typographic functions are way more advanced than in Illustrator. For example, for body text you should always apply the 'Story' function (Type > Story) and set the same pt size as you're using for the body text. Also, I'm not sure if you did this but you should ALWAYS set the spacing to 'optical' instead of 'auto' or 'metrics', regardless of whether you're using ID, PS or AI.

In general this is a beautiful CV though. Actually, one of the most inspiring yet functional ones I've seen.

What program do you use? Whenever I use word to make a resume it looks horrible.

And how do you get the fonts to appear smoothed?
