Resume and business card final

Resume
Paired Business Card

The resume is intended to be viewed by both technical and non-technical viewers. The typefaces, Futura and Bodoni, are chosen to compliment eachother. Both are geometric in nature, Futura has very little variation in weight, but Bodoni has a huge variation in thicks and thins.

The red dot on the i is meant to act as a graphic, distinguishing element. It will reproduce well in grayscale, with similar effect.

The name element was transferred, with some slight modification to kerning and size, to the business card.

Resume rough draft

Resume set in Futura and Didot

I chose Futura as a clean, modern sans. I set it in all caps for category headings with a wide track. A bold weight was used for emphasis throughout the document. Ornstein, mikeornstein.com, workplaces, etc. were set in bold Futura for emphasis, followed by a light future (or in the case of the title, preceded by the light variant). Didot was chosen for the body text as a compliment of the geometric sans – a geometric serif with wide variation in thicks and thins to the very constant weight of Futura.

All of Futura (not including the title) is is set in 10pt. Didot is all 9pt.
