Resume Designer Pro is compatible with the latest iOS 7 operating system, has a simply beautiful design, and an incredibly easy-to-use user interface that walks you through the whole “do-it-yourself” resume creating process. This application comes with 3 different resume examples that show a range of work experience levels (college student, waitress, and consultant physician). These example resumes are also done in a variety of resume formats and give you a practical way to see how you might want to set up your own resume.
A few years back I was talking to a recruiter at Adobe. She told me that they typically got about a thousand resumes for every advertised position, of which 200 were qualified for it. (Note that this was with an online submittal form that sometimes required a long answer – two or more sentences – typed into a half dozen or so boxes.) I would imagine that the current market is about the same for most advertised positions.
So a designed resume like these would be useful in that the hiring manager might spend a couple extra seconds looking at it, perhaps four seconds total rather than the average two seconds he or she normally spends per resume. But if the hiring manager doesn’t see something in that extra time, then it is wasted.
So the resume I like the best of the above is Krista Gregg’s: your attention is immediately drawn to particular points that the designer wants to highlight. Unfortunately, the Hobbies section is the most attention-attracting and the least useful, and the content is not really there.
On the other hand, if you are a firm that pushes these types of designs on to your clients, then it may be hypocritical to not accept a resume designed in the same manner.
On the other hand, I’m not in the design field, just a marketing manager for boring companies, so my input may be totally useless.

Resume Designs doesn’t matter when you are applying for a job, in which you have enough skill. But bad resumes make a different impression. If you have come up with a design which has lot of elements/info in it, first thing to do is show it to some of your friends and find out, if it works.
