Basics

Misha Zadeh is a lifestyle brand featuring the artwork of Seattle-based designer Misha Zadeh Graham. Misha's playfully sophisticated menagerie of bold color and quirky characters can be found on housewares, textiles, paper goods and more.

Misha studied Graphic Design and Interdisciplinary Visual Art at the University of Washington and worked for several design firms before launching her first creative business, stationery company Turquoise Creative, in 2002. Her designs are influenced by life experiences, travels, books and films; from colorful Persian miniatures to folk art from around the world; from mid-century modern design to the abundant flora and fauna of the Pacific Northwest.

The Misha Zadeh Illustration & Design studio is just blocks from the Puget Sound, in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood. We are not open for drop-in visits or retail shopping, but do hold open studio shopping events a few times a year. Join our newsletter list to be alerted about upcoming opportunities.

Collaboration

We are always looking for new partners who are interested in licensing existing artwork or commissioning new art for their products.
