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 09 - TOYLANDTshirt design and art direction for the spring/summer 2009 season, Toyland.  The idea behind this season was basically and in essence.. toys... Toys, toons, and the infiltration of the cute and cuddly to represent the oftentimes harmful.  I wanted to dissect the tendency of using cartoons and cartoon characters as national and corporate spokespersons.
