10 free resume templates to download

Meet Mister Stevenson.  This website was an experiment conducted by Smashing Magazine.  The idea was to design a visual resume in a few hours for Mister Stevenson. An imaginary character, but with “real” information. Directly from SM website here’s their description: “Everyone likes a competition. How about one in which ten good Web designers have to design the same resume in only a few hours? Meet Steven Stevenson.”

Above are 10 great designs as resume examples for Steven Stenvenson.

I personally prefer the ones from Sam Brown and Sarah Parmenter.  Sources in Adobe Illustrator format are included in the zip below.

Resume outside of the box

The size of this visual resume combines elements of a cover letter, a resume and biography information about the designer, Chad Gilliland. I like the simplicity and the dots surrounded by the circle, on the left.

Simple and clean text resume

This kind of resume is both simple and functional. Because using typography you make the difference and functional because you provide easy accessible information about who you are, your experience and skills. Nice and clean resume.

Cover page resume

Heading to an interview, would one page describing you briefly and your interests along with your own portfolio link would that be enough? Probably not. Maybe yes. HR people definitely would like to have a paper record of our skills and experience. I wonder why they keep it so tight to papers.

Text bubbles resume

Actually what I like about this resume, is not the resume itself, but the text bubbles that are on top of it, describing each section and what should be inserted in there. These could give some ideas about a nice and clean resume. Have any? Describe yours in the comments.
