5 Quick Resume Design Tips for Professional Results in 2021

The content of your resume is the most important factor of a resume. But you still need to deliver a clean and modern looking design to stand out from the competition. We'll now go over five different tips that can help you boost your resume's design:

1. Color Blocking

Color blocking is a great way to break up the page layout and make the resume look more visually appealing. A great spot to place a solid color shape is at the top of the resume and have your name, photo, and contact details over top of it. This draws the eye to this important information first.

Color Blocking
The premium template uses color blocking in the template to add interest to the design.

2. Use a Highlight Color

For many resumes, using a single color font will work fine and give that classic look. To add a modern touch, include a brighter color on some of your text to really make it pop out of the page. You can also use this brighter color on icons on your easy resume.

Highlight Color Resume
This premium easy resume template features a yellow highlight color.

3. Use More Than One Column

To create a modern look, try adding columns to your design. One contemporary way to set up these columns is to have one column be smaller in width. Use it to contain resume sections that don't need as much text such as your professional skills, languages, and hobbies.

Multiple Columns
This premium template uses columns to break up the page layout into a more visually appealing one.

4. Include Timelines

Timelines add more visual interest to your easy resumes. They help create a better flow and understanding of your work experience and education. Instead of just including dates for your work experience and education, try adding in timeline graphics.

Timeline Graphics
Premium template, Resume by Last40, features timeline graphic for the work experience section.

5. Use Icons

Icons are another great way to take your design to another level. But be careful here. Use icons sparingly in your easy resume. Including too many icons can make your resume look unprofessional. 

Premium template, Clean CV Resume, features the use of icons to spice up the design.
