My company are looking for a designer and it got me thinking, do designers really need a CV?
As designers we spend so much time on our portfolios, crafting and getting them looking top notch, only to then get asked on job applications for a CV and in some cases a portfolio (but not in all).
Has the industry got its priorities right? Does the work speak for itself? What is the value of a CV vs a portfolio? Or are both needed?
It would be interested to see peoples opinions on this.
