Designer Sends Resume In Gorgeous Hand-Lettered Envelopes, Impresses Employers
By Dorothy Tan, 09 Jan 2014
Austin, Texas-based freelance designer Roxy Torres knows how important first impressions are in a competitive job market—to capture the attention of potential employers, she sent out her resume in beautiful hand-lettered manila envelopes that are bound to catch their eyes.
Each of the envelope in her “Snail Mail” series feature a unique type concept that Torres has carefully drawn by hand—these pieces are so precisely executed that one may find it hard to believe that they were not produced on a computer.
Using a pared down palette of black, white and the occasional pop of blue and red, the designer played with perspective and depth to create surprising dimensions in her typographic artworks.
The studios and agencies which received these envelopes have replied with gushing compliments—one of them even said that they would frame theirs up.
Torres is now working as a sign-maker and graphic artist for Whole Foods Market, Inc.—you can view more of her exceptional work on her website.
Wouldn’t you love to receive one of these beautiful envelopes in your mailbox?
