Hello Team GSMP: Salvador Miramontes Jr.

Sal joined Team GSMP in spring 2016 as our Marketing Specialist - Graphic Designer. Hailing from the Pacific Northwest region of Corvallis, OR, Sal has adjusted to our warm Texas summers nicely. He enjoys the outdoors, the river, and playing soccer through Austin Sport & Social Club. He's also been instrumental in leading expansion efforts of Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc. to Texas State University. 

What do you like most about your job?

SM: That I’m able to help build a solid visual foundation that will accurately reflect and complement the great work that the organization has already accomplished.

You may have seen some our new branded elements, like our new logo, the redesigned website and newsletter, and our new presentation template. Yet this is only the beginning of what we have planned to be unveiled soon. So stay tuned. 

What is your biggest achievement to date – personal or professional?

SM: Personally, I would have to say accepting this position. Not only was it in a new field for me; one in which I knew/wanted to be challenged in and could also challenge the status quo from a visual communication/branding standpoint, but also because it literally made me have to step outside of my comfort zone – by having to move clear across the country.

As for my biggest professional achievement to date, it would have to be the (re)branding of GSMP from day one that I started. To be able to come into an organization, work with its constituents and develop an almost completed branded identity in approximately 1.5 years is something to really be proud of.

What three words would you use to describe your role?

SM: A Creative Scientist who’s Adaptable to what the team/organization needs are when it comes to visual communication, marketing, and branding. Plus, with my unusual depth/range of talents, I basically see myself as the ‘Swiss Army Knife’ of GSMP. 

What is your motto or personal mantra?

SM: There’s nothing more powerful than a humble person with a warrior spirit who is driven by a bigger purpose. Because once you start looking at the world from a different perspective infinite possibilities start coming to life.

What is the last book you read for fun?

SM: In the summer of 2015, these were the two books that I read: The Motivation Manifesto – by Brendon Burchard and Leaders Eat Last – by Simon Sinek (and I continue to skim through them even today).
