Resume appeal

Yet another quickie, but something, in my opinion, is typecast as standard, boring, and straight-forward. The link is of an article that shows 10 unique resume ideas that will surely spark the interest of the interviewer. Now, for me, maybe some seem over the top, but I’m in no way discrediting its creativity, nor its ability of appeal. I created, at most, 4 resumes, all of which held similar information and were created in word. They all lacked creativity, but after viewing these potential resume concepts, it proves to me that creativity has its place everywhere. Now I personally won’t go out of my way to bake a cake with my resume piped on top, but I’ll definitely keep in my its aesthetic value to potential viewers. Sure what it looks like has the subtle ability to grab attention, but without the necessary qualifications, you might as well give it to your grandma. Content and form are crutches for one another, and both should compliment one another.

Slightly lit into the tunnel

I was looking up unique folding instructions for use in an upcoming project, Project of Nothing.

So I’m searching, it’s not to long till I’ve found something of interest. I watch it, I’ve enjoyed it, now what else does he have, he being Lori Pullman. I realize I’m on a neat website, with artful videos, and I decide to use the search engine. This site, by the way, is vimeo.com. I figured that if I found Lori’s videos on this site, I’m sure, although not certain, there might be more paper folding videos to be found. I then came across this video. I liked what I saw and continued to look through the creators profile. This link is for the artist/designer, Greg Barth. The video is just a quick overview of some of his work. I found it extremely interesting to see how he and his team plan then create, it’s wicked.

Now, I have a better idea for the end result of my package design, the Project of Nothing. I’m putting up just a fragment of the research I’ve collected. I’ve labelled each image with a specific title. The titles correspond to the function of each image. According to my interpretation of the project’s criteria, this “nothing” is intangible. Take for example love, if you had to reduce love to a product, what would you design to capture others interests.? Or image the packaging for the ability to grow flowers on grass by peeing on it. Now I didn’t chose something that ridiculous, instead, I chose to design for Light. With my concept, I’m taking what I think light is and how is/can it be interpreted, and revision my thoughts from what I’ve seen of other people. I have thumbnails, but I’ll long those up in a bit. I don’t have credits for the images that I’m reshowing, but I might have them on my pinterest account, bradical12.

Wallet sized hook, line and sinker

A solid resource to a creative approach for a business card. To think that a business card is more than just information, but in fact, it can be a means to portray your skills, your business, or even your personality in a visually catching way. Of course, one must think about practicality when creating a fancy business card because of how business cards are generally stored. The ideas seen in the photographed examples are, in my opinion, a great resource that has the potential in generating others to create more interesting business cards. To visit the site, click here.

Need help in staying creative?

Now there are many tips and tricks out in the world to help in keeping or continuing creativity. This was one website I found to show, mainly for the short and clean video found near the bottom of the web page. It has 29 ways of keeping creative, but we all know there can be plenty more. Keeping creative can be hard at times, especially if the problem you’re solving is uninteresting or seemingly pointless. I can admit that there are times that when I’m doing absolutely nothing, that’s when I get all my ideas, but as soon as I try to begin making these ideas, I lose interest. Here is the link to the site. Pass on the creativity.
