Brandberg – Modern Resume Template

Brandberg is a free modern resume template, with a 2-part vertical left banner and folded effect.

Brandberg is completely editable with MS Word. This curriculum vitae layout is designed with a 2-column structure layout:

  • Left side: a 2-piece green flat design-inspired vertical folded banner, with a placeholder for the ID photo (top), contact information (middle) and skills. The skills part uses a nice keyword cloud design: select carefully what best differentiate you from the crowd.
  • Right side (main part): your name, job title, professional experience, education and references (if any)

This eye-catching design will surely help you get noticed.

You can use this thoughtfully designed resume layout either with or without ID photo.

It is designed for 1 page or more: the bottom left vertical shape will be repeated for each additional page – the top-left vertical banner will only be displayed on the first page.

The package (.ZIP format) includes:

  • Microsoft Word files (.DOCX) in International A4 and US/Canada Letter sizes
  • matching cover letter templates
  • detailed instructions to format and insert your own photo


Optimized resume template for an easy customization

1) Clearly organized with tables

Most of the Word templates you can find online (even the most expensive ones) are simply built with text boxes and shapes. But every resume is different as information length and nature are specific to each of us. And it’s a nightmare to deal with when it comes to using the template with your own content. Tables, on the contrary, allow easy and hassle-free customization, with no formatting or alignment issue.

Tip: to make the customization easier, enable the “View Gridlines” view:

  • click in a table,
  • then click the “Layout” table under “Table Tools” and click “View Gridlines”.

The View Gridlines option either shows or hides the gridlines for ALL tables in your document:

      Hi, first to better understand how the template is built, enable the gridline view (Layout >> View Gridlines). Then select the end of the last table, and click enter… please see the following animation. Hope it helps!
