We love this self-promotion piece by Singapore designer Wong Sock Ying. The piece takes the form of a med kit, featuring real, useful items to designers. You'll notice that every single item in the box is used to promote Sock Ying's personality, skills and contact details.

The first words you read about Wong Sock Ying in the box are that she is hard-working, creative and imaginative. Those words on a standard CV would be pretty much meaningless but Sock Ying has used this piece to prove all of those things.

What does your CV show about you? No what does it say but what does it show?
