Borje Rika was a conceptual student resume design project that I came up with. I wanted to design a sleek, modern online-resume using minimal design standards, bold colors, and animal patterns. These were the constraints I set for myself and began the design process. I approached the project as something I could extend into a larger series of student design packages for graduation and the job hunt.
Business Cards –
When it came to designing the layout of the cards, I felt minimal was the best choice. In a world where people lost interest in something after “6 Seconds”, I found it imperative to capture the eye of the observer immediately. As most people crumple up or throw business cards away, I wanted this to feel much more elegant as if it were something that did not belong anywhere near a trash can. The idea was almost to make the card seem just as valuable as any other card in your wallet.
Responsive Web Design –
In today’s fast paced world, it is very important that your web presence is accessible on a plethora of devices. At any moment, the opportunity of a lifetime could come your way, but pass you by if you are not prepared. There is an old adage that states, “Luck is when preparation meets opportunity”. With this in mind, I designed a responsive website to showcase Borje’s latest projects and accomplishments in his career.
