This graphic designer's reinvented CV and portfolio will make you rethink your own.

Dutch graphic designer Laura Voet recently had a rethink about how she could make her work more eye-catching to potential employers and clients.

She binned the average New Times Roman and bullet points for a minimalist make-over.

Stored in a clear plastic wallet, Laura packaged a minimalist CV, a portfolio booklet and two references from Laura's teacher and mother.

Each item has Laura's now signature bold font and wide spacing - giving her application a refreshing and striking look.

Check out Laura's revamped CV below, and find more of her work.
