More about this template with previews
We always create our CV templates with the user in mind. Having a rigid and fixed template is not going to help you, which is why we like you to edit them to suit your needs. Our delightful ‘Designer’ CV template is super-easy to customise yourself. It’s got two columns which align to the middle and you can decide exactly what information you want in each. If you’ve got more information than will fit on one page, simply space-bar down to push the template onto the next page.
At the top of this graphic designer CV template, we’ve left space for a photo – which is of course completely optional. If you right click on the placeholder image, you’ll have the option to ‘Change Picture’ and you can then add your own photo. Alternatively, you can simply delete the photo and press return a few times until you’re happy with the spacing. (See: Should I include a photo on my CV?)
How to edit the message on this graphic designer CV
You’ll see at the foot of the template on the right hand side, we’ve inserted a fun casual message in the fantastic Jenna Sue font. If you want to, you can of course insert whatever message you like here. For example, “I’d love to work with you” or “Let’s meet!”.
The casual yet beautifully formed lettering of this font make it the perfect choice for these slightly informal yet eye-catching messages. It draws the recruiter’s attention and shows creative flair.
We hope you love this fabulous CV template as much as we do. If you do decide to use it, we’d super appreciate a kind review, a Facebook share or a Tweet!
