Your resume needs to reflect who your are, your skill sets and the type of job you’re going for.
If you’re a designer or in some other creative field and your resume is the humdrum list of qualifications, you’re not showing the employer who you are or what you’re capable of.
You should be using various fonts, white space and negative space, and actually let the resume be a piece of design that reflects your aesthetic.
If you’re in the run-of-the-mill corporate setting, ease off on trying too hard to stand out from others. Otherwise you just look like the song-and-dance salesman who just overdoes it.
