Bringing history to life.

We are third generation art makers. We are media producers, art publishers and art licensing experts with our headquarters alongside the Lake of Lugano in Switzerland.

We provide content to consumers, architects and designers, TV and film producers and distributors worldwide. Our speciality is vintage imagery and film.

Our business was started by Jack Weedn in California in 1950 when he began his acting, singing and aerial photography business. In 1950 Jack Weedn and his wife, Flavia Weedn began a lifelong career in art publishing and licensing of the Flavia archive of art and books.

This art and film business has continued with Jack's son, Rick Weedn joining his father in 1979 and Miguel Weedn, Rick's son joining his father in 2023. Rick and his sister Lisa Weedn grew the business from 1980 through 2008. In 2009, Archivea GmbH of Zug, Switzerland purchased the Flavia Weedn archive and continues today from its headquarters in Lugano, Switzerland.

We have made art for broad distribution for three generations.

We now serve The Getty Museum, The New York Public Library, Claudio Bravo Collection, The Ford Motor Company, The Henry Ford Museums, and the Flavia archive among many others.

We love history and art and pride ourselves in merging the two. Our specialty is visual story telling, archival materials and digital technologies in the production of still imagery and documentary film. Vintage posters, motorsport, aviation, architecture, graphic design, illustration industrial design plus historical authenticity are our passions.

We are global copyright licensing agents for Ford Motor Company and trademark Licensing agents for Carroll Shelby Licensing and The Flavia Weedn and Claudio Bravo archive.
