Web Designer Levels Up His Resume as an Interactive Video Game

Robby Leonardi resume

We’ve seen plenty of creative resumes — everything from a mock Kickstarter campaign to a Google Analytics-style resume. But the latest in unique resume ideas had even us impressed.

Web designer Robby Leonardi took a staple of the GenY childhood experience and used it to create a resume like no other — a side-scrolling video game reminiscent of Super Mario Brothers.

It includes such features as rising piranha plants that illustrate his proficiency levels in various skills, an air balloon that takes your character past his various awards and achievements (which can then be opened in a separate tab), and fun personal facts like his NBA fandom. (And yes, children of the ‘90s, it does include an underwater level, too.)

We’d describe more, but you really have to play it for yourself to get the full experience.

What do you think of Leonardi’s unique resume design? If you were looking for a Web designer, would you hire him?
