There's some nice examples here and some which I think are missing a few finishing touches - for example the text in the objectives section on the Paige Knox example in some cases carries over to two lines and is hyphenated - it's really easy to change and would make this look a whole lot more professional. Same thing really with Server Resume the paper lines aren't quite running inline with the text - but it doesn't look enough out of line for that to be purposeful. Whether these are templates or not - making sure things are perfectly aligned and words don't carry over to two lines is what will make people download that design over another.

I have to say the 'fashion' design is awful, how the person has been drawn doesn't look like a natural stance, the shape of the dress is awful and the patterns and fabric are about as far away from fashion as possible.

While creative, most of these are god awful designs that have lost sight of their primary goal. In case you didn't realize, the primary goal of a CV is for someone to actually read it. Someone could make the case that you are attempting to display creativity and get noticed while showing off your artistic talents. While the logic in this thought process is sound, the execution of the vast majority of these examples have fallen short. Most of them have some combination of either poor use of typography, poor color choices, horrible usage of unmodified stock photography, more horrible usage of free photoshop brushes, and a complete lack of understanding of the basic elements of design (aside from maybe repetition.. and not in a good way.)

All this said, if you make a living creating art or design for the web, your content should be top shelf like a couple of these designs shown above. If design is not your career goal, you should stay away from the types of designs that focus on your artistic design skills and make your resume content the focus of the page. Anything else will simply tell the reader that you are trying to cover up your lack of job related experience with some horribly crafted design work. Either way, you will be unsuccessful. Good luck.

I think some of these are actually very bad. Good design doesn't mean "hard to read". I believe in good design that works and many of these don't work (even if they look good).
I would like to show mine as an example (http://eddiepotros.com and click on the PDF version). It's creative, yet looks professional enough for employers.
