A Cause Near & Dear // Louis Salgar Fund

Louis Salgar Foundation, Nicole Salgar

If you’ve lived in Miami in the past 4 years you’ve probably had Louis make you a cocktail. A phenomenal cocktail. Unfortunately, the greats seem to be destined for just that, greater things. Louis’ life was taken suddenly this past June. But if we can take something beautiful out of something so ugly, it’s that he left as a legend. As a bartender he willingly shared all of his knowledge with everyone around him, leaving a legacy of cocktail bartenders in the Miami community. That is something to be very, very proud of. His sister Nicole has been working her little booty off to share his spirit and memories with everyone around here as well as raise money to help provide capital for young creatives in the Miami area. She’s also been doing some pretty incredible things for the cocktail community down here as well. This girl never stops. Just pure badassness all of the time. Above is a portrait that she illustrated of her brother. Check out her other work on her website. And read Louie’s story here.

Adding personality to your rèsumè

So, I’ve revamped my rèsumè and I’m busy picking and choosing where I want to promote my skill set in Miami.

Meanwhile, I wanted to share what I did. This is not for every profession, but as a creative there is a fine line between being creative and being professional. I’ve added some personality to my rèsumè and it’s envelope just by adding simple silly type that says exactly what I’m thinking. As a photo assistant/digitech/grip gal I have the opportunity to show a little bit of (good) attitude, but keeping it professional can be tricky.

Here I chose to use a little humor to creative intrigue. Stuck with Futura as my typeface because it looks clean and expensive and opted for a nice linen paper… because the way your fingers feel on paper is more important than you might think.

I know that if I received one of these as an employer I would want to open it and keep reading.

Alright guys, fingers crossed!
