    Thanks so much for your feedback DonPig and Salsa. I will use your advice. I will be sending this to design firms. I have read mixed reviews on making your resume more of an elaborate design. How elaborate...

    The layout is nice, although I've been told that multiple columns get jumbled up when it's run through a resume scanner, so you might want to send out a one column version to larger companies that would...

    It looks clean and simple, it depends on the client you're aiming to, if it is a "regular" client I'd think it's ok; but if you plan sending this to a creative agency or such I would aim for...

  • Usage - And or "&"

    Hello,

    I don't know if there are any hard and fast typography rules on the usage of "and" or "&" in body copy or in headlines/taglines. Aside from simply being consistant, what guidelines do you follow when using either the word "and", or the ampersand glyph?

    Lemme know!

    Rob.

    In body copy I'd spell it out & in Headlines or taglines it's your choice.

    < yes I did that on purpose >

    I guess it depends on what style your going for, document space, and visual space.

      What patkennedy said...headlines when I need the space, but not in body copy. I have a client that insists on using the ampersand in body copy and it just looks wrong...IMO.

        I think the only time you really shouldn't use the ampersand would be in a straight up journalistic context (newspaper headline) or in any paragraph of copy. Pretty much any other context would be a matter of personal preference, aesthetics or space constrictions. But definitely be consistent!

          Sounds good. Pretty much what I expected people to say. Thank you for the comments.
