Start filling in your profile section, including your name, email address, contact number, postal address and anything else you feel is necessary, such as your websites URL. Select all of the text you just inserted and change the Leading to 16pt – the leading is the space in between each line of text. Insert the rest of your profile information – this should include information such as how old you are, your ambitions, goals, and hobbies. Still with the Direct Selection Tool selected, whilst holding the Shift-Key to keep the image in proportion, scale the image down. As you can see I have used the same typeface through all of the text, with bold titles and italic used for things such as the dates at the end of each achievement.
Our next step is to find a good set of icons, for which we’re going to be using in our skills section of our CV.
With that done, open all of your icons up in Photoshop and resize them to exactly 100×100 pixels. Copy and paste all of the shapes seven times, placing them in the correct position next to your other icons. Fill in your skill level for each application – be honest here, there’s no point in lying, they will find you out!
The next stage is to add your portfolio of work into the image placeholders on our back page. Just remember that it’s worth spending a little bit of quality time when putting your CV together; it should not only show off your creative ideas and skills, but also give away a clue or two into your personality and the person you are, leaving the viewer wanting to find out more about you, hopefully leading to an interview, or at least a phone call!
If you use InDesign to make your resume, use the advanced tools to make a baseline grid, at least. Note: Do NOT ad a picture of yourself to a CV unless you want the person to judge you before meeting you.
I’ve put a picture of myself on my CVs and that never prevented me from getting a job or at least an interview.
Believe or not if you put your age on your resume, the employer has the ability to discriminate you without breaking any laws by asking for your age.
Designer love to be personal and creative but giving alway too much personal information can hurt you in the long run.
In my opinion, there is nothing wrong approaching a potential employer with a personal approach but sharing your age and including a photo can be hurtful to your price quote (younger = cheaper + easier to get free service for example).
If you include your age on your resume, I see this as a way to weed out employers you probably wouldn’t really want to work for in the first place. Personally I wouldnt add a photo to a Resume but thats just the done thing here in Ireland. Regarding the tutorial (not the content, cos thats not what is being taught here!), its very well written, easy to follow and helpful to those who want to get into InDesign. I’ve come across conflicting information about whether or not you should save your resume in PDF.


I have heard that too, but funny when you said that, I cringed, thinking of all of the people who have brought me flattened pdfs and asked for them in ms word format. However I think this tutorial is more intended for absolute newbies in Indesign, or people outside of the design industry.
Spot on with this article, i although have the problem that i am not a gfx wizkid as you are, so i would rather have a system that does these things for me. It looks like you used all one typeface (Arial?) and you really should try to create as much visual hierarchy as possible, which includes using different typefaces. I especially like seeing your overall design process as that can be applied to any design project.
We will be using basic tools and techniques (but ever so important ones!) to create the design. It just helps avoid that “what do I do?” phrase when you open up a blank screen in InDesign or any other application! Drag out another text box for your first header and your basic information section, such as your name and contact details.
For a small document like this with barely any images, you’re best off using the highest quality setting. You can do this the same way we inserted our profile picture; by clicking on the placeholder and then going to File > Place, selecting your file and then resizing it within the image placeholder using the Direct Selection Tool. The next step is to export our document as a PDF for easy printing and sending digitally via email.
As our CV is made up of just text and few images, the smallest file size quality should be fine for both on-screen and sending.
If someone came to me with that at my company, I wouldn’t have great first impressions with their design capabilities. If someone judges me from my looks before meeting me, I honestly don’t wanna work for them. I think it shows they have the confidence to think outside of the box, try new things and take little risks. Let’s say that the company you applied for is affirmative action company, including your picture can tip the scales either for or against you.
In my opinion, if someone discriminates me because of my age or what I look like, like I said, I wouldn’t want to work for them anyway, but on the other hand I agree that having your age and a picture of yourself on your CV may, in some cases it, hurt more than it can help. Some companies are quite old fashioned and do take age, experience etc too seriously, where as there are a lot of young, creative and experimental agencies out there who purposely go for younger designers to bring fresh talent, modern ideas etc, in which case a picture and your age could be beneficial. I know that other European countries such as Spain where employers expect to see a photo on it. I’ve read several design blogs that say your resume should show off your design abilities. Indesign is very user friendly, but going into it with a guide like this makes the job a lot easier to understand.


I always found it very time consuming to maintain different CV for different positions i wanted to apply for. I’ve had a lot of HR and creative directors tell me not to do that since it makes it too hard to make notes and draw correlations.
Select A4 as your page size, and change the number of pages to two, making sure Facing Pages is unchecked. I’m going to have a profile image next to my profile text, and some icon images in the bottom left hand corner for my skills.
Select your Direct Selection Tool and click on the image you have inserted into your placeholder.
Copy and paste the shape several times, and set them an equal space apart from each other as seen below.
Resize the placeholders using the Selection Tool, and the placeholders contents using the Direct Selection Tool. Having a PDF version of your CV is also great for showing it off on shiny gadgets such as your iPad!
Employers like to know you want to learn and want to keep up with the fast-moving trends, regularly updated software, development skills and last but not least, technology. Normally i make a special CV for my jobs, if they are asking for something specific in the job ad then I write in my CV the things that I have had experience with.
The reason is, someone might assume you’re too old, too young, too white, too dark, too pretty, too ugly, etc. You will notice that this has selected the image inside the placeholder rather than the placeholder itself.
But some human resources professionals say that you should NEVER submit a resume in anything but MS Word format. CVs are mostly for academics and researchers applying for grants and other academic positions.
You can’t be stereotypical when it comes to CV, everyone should have an equal right when it comes to appearance etc.
It can even inherit data from other CVa€™s in a way that i only have to change on place end the basic stuff gets changed automatically.
For mee as a computer specialist but not a graphics wizard like you, this is an easy and transparent way to have several CVa€™s. But if that’s expected in your area of the world, then just make sure you look great and professional.
