When applying for internships and for any creative jobs I start applying for I created a Creative CV, This includes all information that I have done that Is relevant for art and design. I have included my website as an online portfolio and instagram photography account. I have included a skill section out of 5 stars where I would rate myself and comfortability within the adobe creative cloud programmes. When applying for internships I have sent my Creative CV alongside my standard CV so they have both and all information is covered.
For the border on my creative CV I sketched a design of flowers and leaves and multiplied it around then covered with a white box for text. This was as it made it more eye catching and works with the creative theme.
Looking at inspiration when creating and updating my CV i found these images.
Things I took from these examples, is keeping the information included brief but to the point. I also catered the information directly to photography. I also noticed a lot of colour and design which emphasized the artistic quality. This is where I’ve created a colourful flower background border. As you can see from my original CV to my Creative the information has been filtered and altered to what it needs to be. Some aspects that I had taken is the self rating on skills section which I really like, keeps it to the point and shows what I can do clearly.
The sketching around the border was inspired from my previous project when I was looking at Illustrators. Inspirations from illustrators where:
Heliana Adalgiza (aka Aitch)
Aitch is a digital Illustrator. Her work is simultaneously wistful and folky (drawing influences from her Romanian heritage), but also really rich and powerful. It’s also been a surprisingly adaptable style. What I like is the bright colours and idea of repetition, the symmetry and repetition makes the image really pop and stand out, it’s very decorative which Is what I wanted to create to frame my cv. She studies at the University for art and design and her work is created digitally which again is something that I have taken and created.
Fryer is another digital artist that I was interested in looking at for digital illustrative inspiration. Again what draw me to her was the use of colour and design repetition. I like the earthly natural vibe as well which gives a calming effect something that when looking at decided to draw leaves and flowers myself. She creates really nice warm and organic illustrations. Her digital brush stroke work and the texture she works into her illustrations is beautiful. I used a more etchy design for my work creating it very similar to a pencil line sketch, adding a more simplistic effect so it wasn’t too heavy.
