The Illustration & Design World of Zach Johnsen


I am co-founder of the Portland, Oregon based tshirt and apparel company, Tank Theory. I acted as the main designer, art director and overall aesthetic motivator behind the brand from its' inception in 2001 until the spring of 2009.  Fast forward to 2016, I am now, not only still the main designer, but also the owner and operator.

SPRING 06 - ARMY OF DARKNESSTshirt design, print & poster design, photo and art direction for the Spring 2006 season, Army of Darkness.  This was an amazing season to work on, due to all the fun ideas and material to work with.  The theme of this season basically was the revolt of the office worker.  Tired of "casual" fridays, water cooler gossip, and being treated like shit, the workers take up heavy weaponry and terrorize their superiors.. I'm pretty convinced that sooner or later, most everybody who works in your 'typical' office will snap.  I feel your pain and this is my homage to you.
