Drawing on the natural world and numerous spiritual traditions, Margin’s line of calendars, cards, and prints seek to enhance the one’s interior space. It’s Jeremy’s desire as a designer to provide conscious design in an elegant way, which is accessible to all.

Margins makes every effort to work in accordance with sustainable printing practices that support the well-being of all living creatures and the greater ecological system. Their vibrant inks are water and soy based, and they also work with indigenous communities, using Fair Trade and tree-free papers when possible.

The elements play a central part in Jeremy’s printmaking process. He collaborates with the world around him to create unique one of a kind prints. Recently moving his studio to Ojai, within the Los Padres National Forest, Jeremy has been able to apply many unique methods to his work process. His cyanotype prints are exposed in the sun and rinsed with ocean water and some of his silkscreen and lithographic prints use pigments from the earth which are used in color mixing and various open air drying methods are used to achieve the desired texture and color.
