About five years ago, we did a series of staff interviews which introduced you to Chad, the shoeless, Lindy — scattered, smothered & covered, Janet with an appetite for destruction, among so many others. A lot has changed in five years, so we thought we’d introduce you to some new faces who’ve joined our merry band of fabric lovers since then, and also reacquaint you to those Spoonie veterans who have grown and changed — many are in new positions, have become new moms, dads, transitioned to our Berlin location, experimented with new hairstyles…well, you’ll see. Each week we’ll post a new interview of 12 questions for a different member of the team right here on the blog. First up, it’s a pleasure to introduce you to Sarah Ward, VP of Marketing who started at Spoonflower about 10 months ago. Since then she’s been a mover, shaker, beat box enthusiast and bringer of fine pastries to the office.
