morris’ quirky take on a classic curriculum vitae is presented as a customized minifigure, who holds a laptop in one hand and a tiny printed CV in the other. the artist has designed the figure’s packaging to mimic an exclusive LEGO box, while also featuring design elements unique to his work. morris’ digital details, like a link to his website and portfolio, appear on the back of the box alongside an engaging blurb about his work experience and design philosophy. the artist hopes that this novel approach to his resumé design will land him a job at a firm that mirrors his own creative ambitions.

  • This is funny! I wish I could get a figure of myself XD

  • Very original approach. Does it work though? I can see HR dweebs stealing the minifig and then the CV on the back not being read by the HR keyword scanner.

    Douglas says:
  • If you have the money to produce that (not only 1 piece I assume) you don’t need a job.
