In the 2019 Resume Update, "created by a designer" resume templates are briefly mentioned.
As a design team lead, I much prefer to see traditional style resumes over resumes which try to look "pretty" and scream "designer", particularly if the "designer" resume has meaningless skill rating bars.
I agree whole heartedly, I'm a design team lead as well.
A resume is a 'genre' of communication. I want to see that a designer can communicate in that genre. Their portfolio is what will stand out and allow for design variability... and that's what portfolios are made for.
