This CD Thinks 261 PDF Pages’ Worth of Awards Sounds About Right

18 minutes.

It took me 18 minutes to download Alma DDB San Francisco CD Raymundo Valdez‘s 261-page PDF detailing every single award and honor he’s received during his 22-year advertising career. Granted, this download was done on a Macbook Air (a “normal” computer might have had more success), but still, that’s a gigantic PDF. Perhaps the biggest PDF I’ve ever encountered, and it even includes photos of the actual awards certificates.

If you would like your own copy of Mr. Valdez’ awards portfolio, you may do so at his own personal website here. We like your work a lot, Raymundo, but do you actually have a physical copy of this printed out that we can take a ruler to? True to the standard, Valdez’ resume is only a page long. But, he may be setting the new standard for how long your “accolades” portfolio can be. Is this lengthy “resume” justified or this egomania at its finest?
