ArtAttack is in Salt Lake City this week, attending the Altitude Design Summit with what seems like a preponderance of the world's design bloggers, plus some Houston design and social-media folk including Monica Danna and Amber Roussel. Danna, Roussel and erstwhile Houstonian Laura Mayes came out earlier in the week to school politicians and their staffs in the ways of social media at the Politicopia conference, and now all have converged on the Grand America Hotel for this two-day slice of design-blogger nirvana.

Mayes spoke yesterday morning on creative collaboration, knowing much about whereof she speaks from her numerous successes including the Kirtsy and the Mom2.0 conference. This morning, Roussel will participate in a roundtable discussion about her work on 24/7 Creative initiative.

ArtAttack is loving Salt Lake, and more than a bit embarrassed for not knowing what a gorgeous, mountain-ringed city it is. Though we're missing out on the celeb-fest over at Sundance in Park City, keynote speakers Seth Aaron and Mondo Guerra from Project Runway helped ease the pain a little. Oh, and the Grand America Hotel? Like a little slice of Paris in Utah, if that's possible.
