Anderson graduated from Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 1981. By 1985 he joined the edgy Duffy Design Group. Most of his inspirations come from the mixture of mid-century New Bauhaus Modernism and carnivalesque pop culture. In 1989, Charles formed form his firm the Charles S. Anderson Design ( CSA) which specializes in identity development, packaging and product design. One really interesting fact about the firm is it has the French Paper Company as a long term client for over thirty years.
