Aspiring Ad Man Creates Fun Google-Inspired Resume
The Job Market is Competitive and Chris Liu Wants to Stand Out.
Aug 01, 2013
It's highly unlikely that anyone will use "Liugle" as a verb any time soon, but 24 year-old aspiring copywriter Chris Liu is already getting attention for his Google-inspired resume. With the help of his Art Director/Interactive designer big brother, Liu created an interactive site designed to resemble a Google search results page. It has clickable links to his LinkedIn profile, Twitter page, YouTube channel, personal blog as well as both real and fake news articles along with the type of image and summary profile one usually sees on a famous person's results page.
The University of Illinois graduate also seems to have considered the possibility of being accused of any type of copyright infringement. His "About" page subtly points visitors to a series about remixing and the theory that everything is a remix. He then explicitly states that infringement was not his intention and that he isn't the first to use Google template for something else. "Google it," he writes. It's not clear if that type of argument will hold up in a court of law (or if it would even have to), but here's hoping this original advertising hopeful doesn't get Scroogled.
