Doing Your Resume in InDesign : InDesign & Graphics ..
Using myself as any example: I am by no means an artist (I am a software developer by trade), but I feel that I have an eye for good graphical presentation, and I can use some Adobe products, such as InDesign, with competency. Thus, I made my resume in InDesign and included some (basic) graphics to guide the eyes to the main sections of my resume. The atypical layout I used has caught some eyes which I really hoped would notice my resume; plus, when I list Photoshop and InDesign as supplementary skills, I have already provided some evidence of that. Whether or not a recruiter reads into the relative uniqueness of my resume as indicating that I am "creative" is moot, since it really does depend on the person reading the resume.
