For Intro to Computing’s final project, they built simple personal logos in Illustrator and constructed resumes in InDesign. This project was meant to create an awareness of how much or how little they have accomplished during their first years of college, as well as give them a little experience with logo development and InDesign. Many of the students had not typed a resume before, and they found this project useful as they prepare to apply for part-time after-school jobs and post-graduate jobs. The layout needed to be organized, easy to read, and fluid with a sense of style. Creating hierarchy with text was a challenge, as they have not taken typography classes yet. I edited everyone’s first two resume info drafts they typed in Word or Pages before they moved into the InDesign software.
Below are some first page resume examples that were turned in. All have aspects to be improved upon for their portfolio, but overall I was very pleased with their results!
