“In these tough economic times, many designers find themselves applying for jobs and freelance gigs on a regular basis.
So, how can we stand out from the rest and grab the attention of a design agency when they’re usually bombarded with hundreds of applications?
The best way to do this is in the design of your resume. Assuming that you have the skills that they’re looking for, a striking and visually appealing resume will go a long way at getting you the creative job that you want.
In the worst case scenario, it will at least buy you a few seconds by catching the eye of a recruiter and may become the difference between getting hired or not.
In this article, we’ll take a look at 30 creative resumes that can inspire you to think outside the box when designing your own resume.”

So long, LimeWire, it’s been fun. Seven months after the peer-to-peer file-sharing service was defeated in federal court, its company is preparing to shut down.
In October, LimeWire stopped distributing its software and shut down its servers in order to comply with a court ruling stemming from its lawsuit with the RIAA. In June, the RIAA said it would seek $1 billion in statutory damages for the copyright infringement incurred by the service.
Yesterday, Peter Kafka at AllThingsD reported that LimeWire had shut down its online music store. The closing of this store, which operated like iTunes or eMusic (that is, legally), suggested that the overall company might be shuttering.
Today, LimeWire responded to Kafka, confirming in its statement that it is indeed closing its doors.
“Given our current situation, plans to bring our separate, legal music service to market have been canceled. The beginning of 2011 will mark the closing of LimeWire’s New York office and cessation of business by LimeWire. We attracted some of the top talent from the technology community over the years to build our new music service. We’ll be helping our team members commence their job search over the next few months.”
