Vector animation

 For my vector animation I will make a button that will link to the homepage. This will be on every page so that the viewer can navigate around my CV. I wanted to keep it simple so that it would match the style of my CV.


In my interactive CV I plan on using several interactive elements. On the home page you will be able to swipe or scroll down to get to the menu where there will be headings that you can click on to get to that page. There will also be 'home' buttons on each page so that the viewer can return to the home page.

Sound Research

In my interactive CV I will use music on the homepage that will fade out when the viewer goes to the next page. I will add a button to mute the music so that the viewer has a choice. For the rest of the CV it will be silent so there will be no transition sounds or sound effects.


I like this font because I think it looks smart and professional, which is what I want my interactive CV to look like.

I like this font as it also looks smart and professional however it is a serif font which makes it look older whereas a sans serif font can look more modern.

This font is a plain font and although it looks smart I think that it is too boring for my CV.

I like this font as it looks futuristic however it would not look good in my CV as it doesn't fit with the style. 


On the home page you will be able to scroll down to the menu. From the menu you can click on a heading that will take to another page with more information. On each page there will also be a button to return to the home page.

Visual Style

what do you like/dislike about them? Do these styles represent you? How/why do they represent you? Are you going to create your own visual style?

Semi Flat Design

Flat design is a minimalistic design approach that emphasises usability. It features clean, open space, crisp edges, bright colours and two-dimensional/flat illustrations. It is used on a lot of mobile phones with the most distinctive being the Apple iPhone. Semi flat design combines flat design with real world enhancements, this makes objects stand out.
Example of semi flat design
I like the simplicity of this style and the bold colours. It makes the design smart and looks professional which is how I want my CV to represent me. I don't like the bright colours so in my design I would use a simpler colour scheme. 

Huge Background Image
This is a huge, high quality image as a background with text on top. A lot of websites use this style one of the main ones being Apple. 

Example of a huge background 
I like this style for the same reason because of its simplicity. Also, if I use a high quality image it makes it look really good. The bad part to using a large image is that you can't add much colour and the colour of the text has to make the text clear to read. I want this style to represent me because it also looks smart and professional.
