The Salvage Press is the imprint of artist & designer Jamie Murphy. Graduating with an honours degree in The History of Art & Design and Visual Communication (NCAD, 2006), he spent several years working on his own and with the design studios of others before completing his MA in Design (NCAD, 2012). Following this he moved to the UK where he worked with Justin Knopp at the newly established letterpress workshop, Typoretum. Returning to Ireland he worked as an understudy to master printer Seán Sills in Distillers Press at the National College of Art & Design. He began as Designer in Residence there in 2013 before being appointed Printer in 2015. His focus with students is on typographic research and experimentation. Through collaboration, The Salvage Press works with creatives from many disciplines producing projects which are mainly of Irish interest. Jamie's award winning books reside in private, public and institutional collections across the globe.
