Tube Map CV’s

July 12th, 2011 No Comments

I have been blogging about creative portfolios recently, with the notion of ‘standing out from the crowd’ as my backbone. This is also relevant to CV’s. Just like a portfolio, you have to stand out from the crowd to get noticed! I came across two fantastic CV’S which mimic a London tube map, and instead […]

Out with the old, in with the iPad

July 5th, 2011 4 Comments

As I have mentioned in my previous posts, I like a portfolio which can be hand-held, something I can touch and feel. However I do agree that online portfolios are essential due to its accessibility and sharable factor, as well as the digital side too, including motion – videos, films and so on. So when I […]

These range from a […]

Showtime

Upon my search for creative portfolios, I came across the ‘showreel’ portfolio concept. I think this is a great way for creative minds to show off their work in a digital format.

Wilson created ‘An Interactive Hand Made Package‘ known […]

There’s all sorts of diaries available on the market, however a diary is a personal thing and Bookleteer can most defiantly relate to this. Bookleteer allows […]
