I have developed my CV over the past few days following on from the tutorial with Jay. As mentioned, before I have gone for the CV design that used the coral as an accent colour rather than as a bar across the top. This is to link it between to the design of my website & portfolio. I have changed the dot of the marque to include the coral colour to match the developments made on my portfolio. In terms of content I haven’t changed anything.
I have experimented with the placement of the marque and my contact details. I have tried having them in line with the three columns to see if the balance of the document would be better. I found that it seemed like too much white space at the top of the page. I also thought that with the marque about the column would be better as I wanted there to be a clear hierarchy system within the document. Therefore, I made the decisions to keep the marque left aligned and about the height of the columns. However, using the base line grid I have no aligned the contact details so that they match the rest of the text on the cv.
Overall, I think that these small amendments to the CV have helped to create a strong CV that links to the design of my website and Portfolio.
