My resumé as a London Underground map.

I’ve seen people use a tube map metaphor for their resumé (e.g. here and here) and always wanted to have a go. Here’s my first effort – what do you think? :-)

(click to enlarge)

I created it using Keynote 09. Feel free to download the file and create your own! :-p

    As something of a map addict I think it is great. However, the purest form of the Beck underground map has all lines as vertical, horizontal or occasionally 45 degrees. The original inspiration coming from circuit diagrams.

      Thanks Andrew – something to bear in mind for v2! :-)

  • John McLear

    Would love to be able to open/edit it to do my own but .key file is closed format :(

    Please see:

    Any chance you can export it as an open format please?

    • Doug Belshaw

      I’ll see what I can do..

  • Your Name

    I’ve thought about doing an infographic CV a few times, as it could really help to show interactions, but suspect it would not be well received by prospective employers.

    So is yours mainly for decorative purposes, or has it actually helped you land work?

      Oh, only for practice (so far!)
