Unit 11 3.1: Creative CV- research

(Unit 11 3.1)- This week, I have begun work on Unit 11 and this project will be focusing specifically on criteria (11 3.1) where I will be producing a creative CV to go alongside a portfolio of all my best pieces of work that show off my learned skills.

Firstly, I was advised to briefly research existing creative CVs to gain an idea of how they can be presented and how the various information ca be laid out too. During this part of the research I found many ways of presenting specific CV elements which made me realize ways of showing it I would never had considered before. For instance, I came across CVs with timelines showing work experience placements and even little picture symbols which portrayed the specific skills and interests.

Once having looked at these CVs, I decided fro mine to keep it creative with the symbols and timeline designs but at the same time to keep it neat, organised and professional. But now I had a brief idea of what direction I wanted to take my CV, I started to think about a specific theme and colour schemes I wanted to go for. I knew that I wanted to go for a beach and seaside theme along with teal colour themes to represent this.This was when I started to research teal colour schemes and analyse existing creative CVs on what elements on it inspire my own creative CV and what I’ll be likely to use for it.

Using design skills from my previous unit 10 storybook project I was able to lay out my research as a mood board and using the feathering tool in order to make it look much more neat and creative.

here is my mood board which features all my research finding which i have cited and referenced:
