Friday Links: Cultivating creativity, resume advice, design is a job

It's Friday and you know what that means...time for some links on design, creativity, & other things we love here at Hue & Tone!  Without further adieu...

One | If I only had thirty seconds to offer you a piece of essential career advice, it'd be this: don't use a Microsoft Word template for your resume. Here are some good tips as you move beyond that.

Two | Travel is not a huge part of my life these days, but I'd like to incorporate more of it eventually. I'm reading through these tips on how to prepare your business for extended travel.

Three | Why you should cultivate creativity in your business: "No matter how good somebody is or how brilliant they are, they're going to be wrong sometimes." 

Four | I love these thoughts on the difference between graphic design & other kinds of design: "Graphic design is about communication, and there's something about communication that is fundamentally social or even civic in its nature." 

Five | We'll close with something a little more practical: these subtle brushes.
