Philippe Dubost's Amaz'ing Resume
Very cool! You have to check out Philippe Dubost’s (phildub) resume site. Completely designed to emulate an Amazon product page, down to the smallest details. Many of the links work nicely, taking you to a contact form or details on his LinkedIN profile page. Things like his Product Dimensions, Only 1 Available, Star ratings and frustration-free packaging from France. Even a Google Ad, similar to the ads on actual Amazon pages.
Certainly creative, I wondered if this should be considered an infographic resume. I ended up convincing myself that “Yes” I do consider it to be infographic because it visualizes Philippe’s information in a way that is recognizable and easier to read and understand to the audience. Star Ratings, key features, product photos and recommendations. The visuals do bring meaning to the information, even though it’s done in a fun and amusing way. It doesn’t have to be a chart of numerical data to be infographic.
