Q: “what do your resumes look like? are they design-y looking or no-frills?
A: Designed! when applying to a design job, your resume is often the first thing the art director sees. it’s an example of your type styling and layout skills. it doesn’t have to be jazzed with odds and ends — it can just be beautifully typeset. you want the information neatly organized with no more than three typefaces: a main headline text, a second for your dates and a third for the descriptions. anymore it will look too busy.
I agree, type choices, setting layout and layout are key! Not extra decoration and tricks.
