Creative Resumé

QR CODE - Content-rich Resume from Victor petit on Vimeo.

French design student Victor Petit, looking for an internship, created this amazing resumé. He placed a QR code on the back of his resumé over a photo of himself, and the QR code links to a video of his mouth talking. Really creative and a great use of QR codes.
