Thanks for all of the kind words, folks. Like I said, it was the first time
working on my résumé was fun, and I'm happy to see that some of you found
some inspiration in my approach- looking forward to see what you come up

Nathanael, FJ, naturally this execution isn't going to work for those
employers or recruiters that require more traditional documents- that's why I
have a text-only version as a backup. Pretty much the same thing but with the
infographics formatted as bullet points.

Matthew- I've been having that same problem as well in regards to what I can
and can't display in my portfolio. My solution so far has been to keep in
close contact with clients that I have a confidentiality agreement with and
get approval on specific pieces of what I want to show that don't give away
any sensitive information. Might not always work but I've been lucky so far.
In regards to your resume/portfolio, I think it might be a bit overwhelming
to combine the two. Maybe splitting them up?

FJ- Looking at yours definitely makes me feel that the timeline concept is a
strong one, and I like the additional data you related to the timeline.

Akshadaks- It doesn't look like you can attach the file to the thread. a web
link maybe?

Benjamin- I absolutely agree, simplicity is paramount. Don't let the
aesthetics get in the way of the data you are trying to present.
