My Dad asked me to print more business cards, the only problem with this… was that this design was made when I first graduated LIU Post in 2012. I desperately wanted to adjust the design, it was cringe worthy as my designing techniques have changed drastically. Only changing the design slightly, I am very happy with how these business cards came out. I sent these cards to my local printer Grand Prix Litho on Long Island instead of VistaPrint like I did the first time around. Since I didn’t go with an online company I was able to get a better quality product and it didn’t break the bank. I chose to go with a Satin Matt Laminate with a Raised Spot UV on 16pt cardstock. I absolutely love these and so does my Dad!
A lot has changed since 2014… that was the year I decided to redo my Graphic Design Resume in a style that fit my career of choice. I wrote about creating a project like this and showed my influences – Check out the blog post here “Creative Graphic Design Resumes…”
Here in 2020 I decided that I need to update my resume for various reasons, one being I became older and my photo was a younger version of myself. Along with that photo update, I wanted to re-design the layout to be able to fit more jobs and experiences on that standard 8.5″ x 11″ piece of printer paper found in most offices that are hiring people, not robots… I’ve never worked at one of those and don’t know what paper dimensions they use.
It was time the 2014 layout needed a change for 2020, below is the before and after.
I recently got a Wacom tablet this passed holiday season and instantly fell in love with this device! If you haven’t tried one of these guys, you need to ASAP! As you can see from in my gallery I do a lot of work for The Muckrakers for my brother. When I think of Punk Rock I think of grunge, and dirt. So I used dirty paper textures in the background to give it that feel.
I think i speak for everyone when I say, we all love concept art! But when you think of concept art, you think of video game characters or fictional movie characters like aliens or monsters. For Jason Heuser he imagines the Presidents of the United States! That’s right the Presidents in crazy, insane, ridiculous scenarios!!! Some of these literally had me cracking up and laughing out loud at my desk this morning, especially the Ben Franklin VS. Zeus!!!
If you’re like me and were spitting up your coffee out of uncontrollable laughter, you can see the rest by clicking the link below:
As creative professionals, everything we do has to be creative in someway! At least that is how I feel, so why not dress up your resume? After all as designers, isn’t our job to organize data in a more visually pleasing manor? With that being said I found an article on inspirationfeed.com that inspired me to Re-design my resume to make it look like a designer created it. What do you guys think about this topic? Should designers keep a standard resume or a more graphic oriented resume?
Andddddd as promised here is my take on this topic. Please let me know what you think! Would you hire me if you saw this?

I love to draw and sometimes I find my work a bit dark even if i don’t mean to. Well Scott Martin from Burnt Toast a Motion & Design Company has created work that is both Playful… Yet Dark at the same time! I feel like I am drawn to this style a lot. His work you almost have to do a double take to catch something you didn’t see at a quick glance. Great work! Check it out below.
Do you like Star Wars? What about Andy Warhol? Well GOOD! Designer Chug Kong has combined them both, so you don’t need to have 2 Google Chrome tabs open to view artwork from both at the same time. Check out his illustrations very minimalistic and amazingly creative at the same time!
These are just a few, check out more Star Warhols and much more bellow!
