The 12 secrets to creating the best graphic designers resume
Nowadays, freelance graphic designers seem to be everywhere! So it can be really hard for a particular designer to stand out of the crowd. However, that doesn't mean it’s impossible. In this article, I will give you the twelve top secrets and tips on how to create the best graphic design resume, which will help you land those dream clients

1#- Taylor your graphic design resume to your audience: 
 
Different clients want different things. So, in your resume, you should show them that you have extensive knowledge and experience in whatever job they are offering. If they know you can do the job, they will be more inclined to hire you.

2#- Showcase all your best work: 

Don’t compile a two-page resume with a bit of everything. You should rather create an focused resume that has information on the most relevant work you have done. That way, the client will easily be able see that you are the right person for the job.

3#- Set yourself some limits 

Go through the jobs you have done and compile a list of everything that shows you in the best light. Stay away from mundane jobs like working for a restaurant or supermarket when you were 16.

4#- Show your role in the projects: 

When listing projects in your resume, you should always try to show the employer what your involvement was in that project and whether the job's outcome was positive. Try to show that you were able to fulfill your part with ease and without problems. 

5#- Use bullet points: 

Nothing draws attention like a good bullet-point list. Actuality, you can use that to create a list of all your accomplishments. That way, you'll make it quick, simple and easy for the readers to see all that you have achieved over your career.

6#- Include your proficiencies: 

A graphic design resume should always include a separate section solely for your technical qualifications. If your prospective clients can see that you can use most software associated with graphics design, they will trust you and your skills.

7#- Proofread and edit: 

Make sure you show your attention to detail with a spotless and perfectly edited resume. Mistakes will only result in a lack of confidence that you can do the job with focus. It can give the impression that you are not thorough enough.

8#- Show your attributes:

Just like you should do with accomplishments, showing your attributes—such as team leadership, critical thinking, creativity is essential. Include all your strengths and make sure your resume portrays you in the best light.

9#- Make a profile resume:  

You should create a resume that is about who you are as a professional and what you have done. It is easier to trust someone who is obviously sure of his skills and doesn't need to use cheap marketing techniques to get new clients.

10#- Be brief: 

Even though you should always mention all your perfectly executed work, you should try to avoid adding fluff—unimportant information—to the mix. Mention all your information carefully and to the point.

11#- Choose the correct font: 

Be cautious with overuse of fonts and fancy design. Keep it simple and try to use a classic font impeccably designed and set with one or two signature Colors..make it easy to read and simple to navigate


12#- Invest time into the cover letter:
 
Your resume needs to be accompanied by a cover letter. To make the best impression, create a cover letter that says who you are in as little as three paragraphs. Try to keep it short and concise.
