The strange faces and minimal scenes in Japanese illustrator Noritake’s work are utterly charming. Working mainly in monochrome with occasional flashes of blue or peach, the work manages to distil emotions and actions into beautifully crafted one-liners. Noritake has worked on designs for clothing as well as editorial illustration projects, but it’s the advertising work we love the most – quite something considering we have no idea what we’re even being sold.
