You want your resume design to be as simple as it can be while still leaving space for all the skills you need to showcase. Don't overcrowd the page but rather leave plenty of white space. This is aesthetically pleasing and helps guide the reader's eye down the page. If this means you must have a second page, that's okay. It is better to have a two-page resume than to visually overwhelm recruiters or potential employers.
If you use a special typeface at all, such as bold or italics, use it sparingly with a clear purpose. Likewise, only use color if it is instrumental in selling your skills. Use a simple font that looks good both online and in print. By sticking to a standard font and template, you ensure that the content of your resume is the most memorable thing about it.
