My Design Resume

I really wanted to do something beautiful with my resume, something that says "WOW", "amazing", and "so beautiful". I decided to put together a brochure, but not just any old brochure! I went with an exotic, twist fold. Upon opening my brochure, my potential employer will find my business card inside.

This project required much strategic planning for its unique folds. I first had to measure and calculate the folds and live areas. Next, I needed to set up the In Design template with dimensions, angles, margins, and folds. The entire piece is created with perfect squares. These squares are then nested within one another on a 45 degree angle. The layout and design of this piece required me to create a folding dummy.
