With a little under two weeks left until I get the overall mark for my degree, I decided to flex my design muscles and attempt to put together a nice one page, responsive CV/resume: and here is the result!
I’ve been meaning to use some sort of HTML5 boilerplate for a while, but most seem so heavy or excessive for something like this. That was until I came across Skeleton, a stripped down starting point that was just what I needed. My favourite feature is the grid system is kept entirely separate from the reset/base CSS file (which I in fact dropped), meaning you have all the fun with a frankly awesome grid system without having to deal with inheriting unwanted styles. The naming a nice touch, allowing class combinations such as ten columns offset-by-two, and the default media query holders were such a great help, covering pretty much every base I needed.
Now to start sending this out! And to convert it to a PDF format for those who enjoy the old school.
