Different from your architecture portfolio, a resume has to be short, very concise and easy to read. I have seen many people overfill their resume with too much information and decoration that is not needed. Here are five simple tips to take into account when designing your architecture resume.
Two fonts is really all you need. When you use a lot of fonts it just gets really messy and the idea is not very clear. So just use one font for the titles and another font for the texts.
Here are some combinations of fonts you can use together.
2. Use minimum Colors (No more than two are recommended)
First start with black and white, and if you think it needs a little more life, then add one color. There are also very minimal color palettes so your resume doesn´t look like a clown. (No offense to our clowns)
3. White space is your friend.
You don´t want your resume to look like an old newspaper packed with information everywhere and your employer doesn´t know where to start!You want to have white space so the eyes can rest and it is not so dense. Less is more.
This is really important to keep your resume nice and clean. It is just like design, architecture and anything in general. It has to look good! You can´t have texts floating around everywhere, not being aligned. Symmetry the majority of time it works.
5. What do you want to say?
There are some minimum requirements that everyone needs in their resume. For example:
-Contact info/ Job References
