This Top-Secret Design Will Get Your Resume Into The Right Hands

Most resume designs — two pages of 12-point blah — don't exactly scream HIRE ME, especially if you're in the design business. That's why Norwegian designer Vidar Olufsen put all his details in a folder styled like a top-secret document dossier. Everyone wants to know about the hidden stuff.

Olufsen says that the idea came into his head after being told that one HR department would "file him" for later reference, a phrase that made him think of dusty old filing cabinets. So, he made a design perfect for that environment. His resume consists of an old-school brown document wallet, complete with security band. Inside is a personnel file straight out of WWII. There's a portfolio of his work, personal details on typewritten pages, and even a 'passport' that wouldn't look out of place in Stalin's Russia. [Vidar Olufsen via Abduzeedo]
