Redesigning the traditional resume through a storytelling and interactive video game experience.
As a side project I took on the challenge of redesign of the mundane resume into something which can show the unique aspect of the individual. The idea was to test the response toward the concept on a small resume so I took my own resume as a sample and tried to present it using an alternate fashion.
Three intended goals were set -
- Increase the time user spends on the page.
- Create a lasting and unique impression.
- To be able to use arrow keys to navigate as a video game.
I thought of a theme inspired by the flat design comprising of vibrant colors and crisp typography.
Next step involved interations of design. Background images were designed using Photoshop and Illustrator and went through several cycles of refinement and heuristic evaluations.
Some of the designed components are shown alongwith a screenshot of the final outcome below.
