would have been nice if you had included the logos to some other packages as I don't use indesign but i do use the other three. I tweaked it a bit to get those three logos on one row. it does look really good.

Looks very nice printed on quality paper using a good printer - that is definitely the key for this CV example.

Example fonts for this CV template

We’ve used two amazing fonts in this Word CV template – Lobster, a seriously gorgeous Bold Condensed Script fully loaded with hundreds of ligatures and alternates; and Arvo Regular, a geometric slab-serif typeface. Both are free and we have given you the links above to make it easier for you to find them. Make sure you download and install both before opening your template or the fonts will be replaced with whatever your default font is. You can customise the use of both fonts to your heart’s content, creating the perfect CV that shows off your designer skills. Check out this page on customising Lobster.


It seems to be such a huge source of debate – should you include a photo on your CV or not? There are about as many reasons for as there are against. Have a read of our photo pros and cons and make up your mind.

If you decide you don’t want to include the photo in your CV, it’s really easy to delete the placeholder. Simply click on it and hit backspace – you’ll then need to delete a couple of lines of extra space to move everything else up to the top.

Social profiles

Employers are increasingly interested in what prospective employees are putting up on their social profiles – and job applicants can use this to their advantage. Use your Twitter and LinkedIn profile to share the latest news in your industry and show that you’re completely up to date with what’s happening in the market. You can then include details of your social profiles in your CV.

We’d advise leaving off Facebook though – this tends to be used for family and friends, so isn’t appropriate for the CV. It is however advisable, before applying for any jobs, to go on your Facebook profile and just to the bottom of your cover photo, click ‘View as’:

Facebook 'View As'

You can then see what your employer will see if they check out your Facebook profile. Even if you don’t include it in your CV, you may find some employers will go looking for it anyway. It’s wise to ensure there are no posts on your profile that might discourage an employer from hiring you.
