Creating a resume that stands out can take a lot of out-of-the-box thinking. New Zealand-based graphic designer Hayley Aroha found a way to use an artists' go-to item—a color swatch fan—to attract potential employers.

The Self Promotional Pack is a special CV kit which includes an introduction card, dual ended pen, a small bottled snack, and her resume. The resume itself looks like a typical color swatch fan, a common tool for artists and designers alike, but on each page of swatch, there is a facet of Aroha's professional life. According to Aroha's website, the project was meant to express who she was as a designer as much as a person, giving potential employers a first hand look at her creativity.

Check out the innovative resume below:
