Creative Designer Resume Examples

Resumes designed by Cam Elliott

It can be a challenge to come up with – what you feel – is the right resume as a creative designer. If you are an illustrator, how far do you lean into that skill? Or, if you’re a web developer, how many is too many brackets (‘< >’)?

Below are two examples of my own resumes that I hope help other designers get to their own right resume.

My First Illustrated Resume

Prior to the cleaner/condensed resume above, I wanted to test out a fully-designed (and illustrated) resume. Below is the result, which was received well during interviews – thought it was difficult to print.

Corporate Holiday Cards

With this year’s corporate holiday card completed and ready for print (🙌), I thought I would share the newest greenery-focused design alongside last year’s gold-foiled one.

Decked in Green for 2021

'Happy Holidays' text with winter greenery woven in, a holiday card designed by Cam Elliott

For my current company, I proposed a card design that spotlighted winter greenery. For some, the pandemic has been a reflective period, and nature has been part of that reflection. I wanted to bring a little bit of nature’s calming… well, nature, to everyone’s mailbox. I drew the greenery illustrations using Procreate, and I edited the card’s page in Adobe Photoshop.

Glimpse of Gold in 2020

Gold-foil 'Happy Holidays' card designed by Cam Elliott

In 2020, I designed a much simpler holiday card – for a variety of reasons. With everyone’s minds in so many places, less felt like more. Though a bit showy, the intent of the gold-foil was to symbolize glimpsing moments of gratitude and happiness in an upsetting year. I created this card in Adobe Illustrator.

Corporate Email Design

A collection of recent corporate email designs I’ve made for my current workplace. In my role, I create both the copy and design.

Mixing It Up for Events 🎉

Overall, my current company’s visual brand style is really bright, clean, with a friendly/open tone. We host a variety of events, from formal industry ones to more informal virtual happy hours, and I like to experiment with the visual style from time to time to see what garners the most attention from our recipients.

I’m also a big fan of using a handwritten font from time-to-time. Not only does this bring a more personal touch to the content and style, but it’s a nice way to visually highlight concepts.

Putting a Spotlight on Downloads 🎉

Downloads are another common email type for the company. In these emails, I aim to keep the focus short and on the resource itself – first by placing visual emphasis on the report, and then by inviting readers in with a small content preview. The intent is to keep the email relatively short.

However, I do enjoy experimenting with animated gifs in emails to grab the reader’s eye. Below are a few examples of recent GIFs I created.

Company Brand Book

It took me a great deal of time to put this brand book together, and I reviewed countless brand and style guide documents from other companies in the pursuit of putting something fresh but helpful together. Hopefully, someone else will find these pages helpful to their own design structure, too.

Digital Ads

From social media to PPC, I create a variety of ads that focus on service benefits to product features.

Carousel Ads

Digital carousel ads for LinkedIn are great avenues to expand on ideas that are normally too complex for a single ad.

Print Ads

We don’t run many traditional print ads; however, there are a few media sources that we know our customers read. Ads in those sources can be a bit dry, and I like to bring in some personal and fun touches where possible – especially if they will catch the reader’s attention, like in our duck ad below.
