LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT US:
I am looking to brand myself for the purpose of my job search. I moved to Chicago about a year and a half ago with high aspirations of landing an account management position in an ad agency. Then the economy went to hell in a handbasket and it's nearly impossible. My experience is somewhat limited (1-4 yrs depending on what you count as real ad work) so I'm not quite entry-level, but not quite mid-level either - something like 'junior-level'.
I realize paper resumes are hardly used anymore, but I thought that in addition to playing the 'put your resume on our website' game, I'd also have a tangible version that would really jump out of a pile of resumes, but still be professional. Because I'm looking for account management, not creative, it shouldn't be too 'out there'.
HERE IS WHAT WE NEED:
I need a logo and stationery that will catch attention. A resume page/letterhead, business card and graphics that can be transferred to different items (pens, post-it pads...things I could send to sell myself that might be kept/utilized.)
My resume is 2 pages, so the 2nd page should incorporate the design on the 1st page, even if it's just a small element that ties them together. I just don't want page 2 to be completely blank.
Being that part of this is letterhead and business cards, you probably need my address, phone, website and email information:
12816 Waterford Blvd
Plainfield, IL 60585
Is it possible to have a file that I can type my resume directly onto it (emailable) in addition to being able to use it to have a printer create stationery? Like a pdf that can be opened in Adobe Acrobat? Also a logo file that can be cut & pasted, resized, etc. as needed?
OUR TARGET AUDIENCE IS:
-HR / Hiring personnel within advertising agencies.
-Senior account executives/supervisors/directors who might make recommendations that I be interviewed.
-I want them to think that I would be worthy of an interview. I want to be considered.
WE LIKE THESE DESIGNS:
-I love the Mad Men (the tv show on AMC) logo with the black, white, gray and red. Maybe a female take on the Don Draper on the couch?
-A design with an early 60's theme/feel is really what I'd like. I love the style, colors, design,etc of that era. Style-wise, I like to believe I'm a black Audrey Hepburn!
I love the way red pops on just about anything. But at the same time, orange feels more 60's but has a similar 'shout quality' like red. I saw a pale blue starburst on something the other day and something about that felt very retro, too. It's hard to say what will really work best, you just know it when you see it.
You may consider incorporating "glee" into the logo design. Just a thought since my first initial and last name make a cool word (that kinda demonstrates enthusiasm and a positive attitude).
The 60's theme is not a 'must', but a direction I'm leaning.
WE ABSOLUTELY MUST HAVE (or we don't want to see) THIS IN OUR DESIGN:
