I was sitting in a café on University Place and noticed this hilarious sign.
YOU CAN’T UN-SHIT A FIRST IMPRESSION
Even if you don’t have a fancy suit, we’ll make you look good on paper.
The Resumé Hero
Resumés and cover letters for real people who want super jobs.
I found it ironic that the poster was torn, so it kind of looks like shit after all. Someone must have tried to tape something on top of it and it was later removed. Still, it’s a killer sign and definitely caught my eye.
After checking out The Resumé Hero website, I learned that it’s just a small business run by two people who seem confident in their ability to craft your perfect résumé. I prefer my résumé with two accent aigu. Seems like very few people know that that’s the correct way to spell it. Résumé means summary in French. Lesson complete.

I've never commented here, but I just wanted to say that I love this series of posts about signs. What a great way to think about design and experience. It cuts through the noise. Keep it up!

Awesome! Firstly, thanks for finally commenting. You should do it more often.
Secondly, I'm really glad you're enjoying the posts. I've been taking these types of photos for years and finally realized that I should be sharing them here. Seems like the most obvious thing in the world, but it only just recently occurred to me.
Thanks for reading and hope to hear more from you soon.

I love this sign… sums up a few recent screw-ups of mine.
I must admit…I'm hooked on viewing the “photo of the day.” – – as well as reading your related, typically humorous remarks.

PS: I also I prefer to spell résumé with two accent aigu. Of course, spell check disagrees. – JF
