Coming from a long line of recognized inventors, Sarah Spencer has been exposed to innovative thought her entire life. From childhood days of inventing games with her dad to the years beyond college, Sarah has embraced and developed new ideas. After graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology she worked for award-winning firms in Chicago and Phoenix, and then moved on to lead her own company at the fresh age of 28. Sarah directed her energies into growing the business to include internationally recognized product innovation corporations, including Interact makers of ACT! software, ProvoCraft, and philosophy, inc.
The company 26 Letters was hatched as a way to use old printing technologies in new ways. The paper line was picked up by Kate’s Paperie, The Museum Shop of Minneapolis Institute of the Arts, birch fine paper, and Century House to name a few. Enriching the line, Sarah offered designs to the licensing market. Original canvases hang in galleries and showrooms from Beverly Hills to Jacksonville and the current exhibit “Tree Houses” is at the University of Arizona, Phoenix Campus in downtown Phoenix.
With the fresh remodel of her 1963 Airstream trailer, 26 Letters was featured in the seminal style blog Design*Sponge and garnered Sarah and her innovation space worldwide attention. Now, Sarah uses her blog 26-letters.com to comment on design and record her creative endeavors. Her interests include painting, sewing, gardening, bicycling, traveling and—as always—inventing new ways of doing things.
