Today I’m super excited to share illustrated patterns by Na Kim and her delightfully illustrated resume (scroll down). How great is this buffalo x ping pong wallpaper pattern? I love this style of pattern making; taking individual illustrations and repositioning them to create a repeat pattern. And I like that she’s doing so in such a playful way. They’re totally random (or at least appear to be) but work together so well. I love the unexpected combinations! Wouldn’t this pattern, and the ones below, make really cool socks or something? I’m all about it.

Whale Ballin’ 2012 (above). Aren’t these fun?
So I found Na Kim’s illustrated resume first (below), and patterns second, which reminded me of a subject I’ve touched on a few times, resume design. Some months ago, I blogged about what a bad idea “creative” resumes are, especially in the graphic design field. However, in this case I absolutely love Na Kim’s illustrated resume. It just makes sense. She’s a talented illustrator and has a unique typographic style of lettering. I’m not saying all designers (or typographers) should do this, but when it speaks to your skills, and you’re able to inject a sense of personality AND skill into it, then why not.
Love love love! (everything above and below).
