You’ll spend half of your time as a designer impressing clients – or trying to, at least. To achieve that, you can show a portfolio containing your best work. But why not take it up a notch? Why not create a fancy and unique resume? If getting noticed is the objective, then you should aim to excite employers right from the get-go.

I know gimmicky resumes might not sit well with some of you and you do have to question the practicality of passing these around from one interview to another. However, if I was applying for a job where creativity is a huge factor, I’d rather march into human resources with one of these in hand and take comfort in the fact that I’ll be remembered when it counts.

That said, here’s a collection of creative and fun resumes to inspire and get your juices flowing. If you want to know more about the concept behind a particular resume, click on the image to see the original source.
