Studio Zahn is the endeavor of Oregon-based designer, illustrator, and photographer Ted Zahn.

I’m a lifelong student of history, travel and pop culture. Years ago I got a bug for discovering and documenting vintage storefronts and neon signage. I love the visual character and connection to history that they bring to our streets. I’ve had the good fortune to travel America’s backroads and Main Streets with my camera, even publishing a book along the way.

Being a designer and illustrator, I began to draw the buildings as well, recreating their architectural detail and signage. As the big-boxing and Amazon-ing of American retail marches on, these classics deserve to be elevated and preserved. I donate 5% of the profits of each print I sell to Small Business Relief efforts. My goal is to raise the awareness, appreciation — and ideally the patronage — of small, historic, independent businesses everywhere.

Through Studio Zahn, I create original works for sale, as well as partner with select clients for branding and design work.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or special requests.
