Should you add graphics and colour to a CV?
Date: 05/10/2011
For the vast majority of people the answer to both of these questions is straightforward: recruiters alike will tell you that content, structure and overall layout are the only things that matter, because your CV must only evidence your capabilities and experience in a clear and digestible manner. In most cases, adding colour or graphic images will do nothing to advance these objectives.
Some retort that adding graphics, colour and images can help make your CV standout.  It is even fashionable to claim that adding such things helps to market you as a distinctive brand.  There are some companies who encourage you to design your own personal logo or even add a slogan to this effect.
These strategies are based on same logic that led to some sensational antics to gain attention: for instance, one bright spark decided to wrap their CV around a brick and throw it through the window of the prospective employer.  Well, it did gain their attention - just not in the way that individual hoped!!  Needless to say, they didn’t hire him. 
Clever designs, in most cases, are just ignored or, at worst, induce a feeling of disbelief and ridicule.  Basically, let your experience speak for itself and present it compellingly. This is the only sure way to produce a decent CV.

The only caveat to this rule applies to those working in creative sectors, like graphic designers or beauticians who might need to evidence some creative flair on their CV or add a photo to evidence their make-up skills, respectively.  In such cases, this is fine so long as it does not distract from the content.  Just as you would approach a brief, remember the needs of the customer in all you do.
