👁 Bio

Established in 2004 at the age of 18, NoPattern Studio is the Chicago-based practice of artist, designer, photographer and creative director Chuck Anderson. Known for his surreal use of color & light, pioneering juxtapositions of traditional & digital mediums and endless experimentation, Chuck’s work has become highly sought-after by a wide spectrum of brands spanning the fashion, advertising, entertainment, tech, and sports worlds.

Now 35, Anderson’s client list includes ESPN, Apple, Nike, Microsoft, New York Times, Vans, Target, Burton, and the Chicago Bulls, Cubs, and White Sox. In 2010 at age 25 he was named a ‘Design Icon’ by Computer Arts Magazine.
