Do you speak/write German? You might want to include any language in the skills section since they're usually highly sought after. I think you should also move your freelance work to the top, since it's the most current. You've got a *lot* of great work experience, but I'm afraid in the large-ish copy blocks a lot of the info will be overlooked. I would try making bullet points or breaking each sentence into a line with leding, etc. I think you could definitely ask for more. I'd move the colon to before Freelance.

It looks really nice and is well designed. There are a couple of orphans you should try to get rid of though. Unless it's broadcast style, I wouldn't use &s. I would go ahead and spell out Assoc., you have the room. You might unitalicize either the company line or the job position just to show the difference. You should definitely ask for more money.

This needs to be designed to be simple and clean. Your resume should show potential employers how you design and right now it's not looking very good.

I think you should buy a custom URL, your name or something and redirect it to your current portfolio site, just to make things neater and easy to remember. All of your dates need to right align to the same place. And all of your headings need to line up on the left. You should also have the same space between sections. I would also suggest putting some space after each place of employment, just to make things easier on the eyes. Quark XPress doesn't have a hyphen. I would lose the "References available..." line and I would left align your name, contact info, portfolio line and tag line, nothing else is centered and it makes a more interesting layout. I also see you changing tense within the same job description, you need to be consistent.

You need to spell out ABK. I don't think the gradients are adding to the design. You shouldn't have all this personal information of others online either. If you can, try and expand on your design experience, since that's the field you want a position in. It's spelled Quark XPress.

Just a few line breaks and style consistency corrections.

You need to make sure all your bullets line up. I think you also need to make licenses and references match the rest of your resume and start the content on the next line. I would also recommend taking the parentheses off of the dates and right aligning them. I would eliminate your objective since right now it's more the start of a cover letter or e-mail than an objective. That will give you the room to make the other format changes. If you can, you should emphasize any outcomes and achievements you made in your positions. For example, instead of just "Employee enrollments" say "Responsible for enrollment of over 2,000 employees"
