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.

FALL 07 - CONQUESTTshirt design, print design, conceptual and art direction for the fall 2007 season, Conquest. This season I went full battle mode.  Wherever I look, it seems war is all around.  History is defined by battles fought and won or lost.  Hollywood and TV seems obsessed by it. Much of the world seems to be engulfed in it.  So I honed in and focused on fighting.. fighting between peoples and cultures that mark history and continue to write history to this day.  I wanted to pay homage (or at least recognize) the role that violence plays in life.
