Alt Summit Recap

Last year I was a good little student at Alt. I took notes, lots of pictures, and participated in extracurricular activies, such as Sundance and snowboarding the amazing SLC slopes. This year my experience was quick and dirty. I attended with my colleague, and we were there for a short three days, and two nights. I took only Instagram pictures, partied it up both nights, and took half-a-page of notes.

What I did get from Alt, and what has proven to be the most beneficial part of attending such a conference, are the new friendships and connections with some of the most inspiring individuals in our industry. We work within such a small creative niche, and it's great to be reminded of those who contribute and inspire. Everyone's not only creative in their own craft (whether it be letterpress, illustrating, interior design, etc) - but they've also mastered another skill in writing and collaborating through blogging - and I feel so lucky that I get to be a part of this.
