Emi Shiratori

Emi Shiratori is a Japanese graphic design and illustration artist based in Sapporo, Hokkaido. Emi's design is inspired by the vast and ever-changing natural landscape of Japan's Northern Island. Her distinguished style in vividly hand-drawn organic shapes and motives marks her identity artworks. Emi loves cats, dancing and nature. She always seeks the organic line that is drawn by neither Japanese nor Western standards.

Emi has graduated from the Hokkaido Design College in 2000, and ever since founding her design office NANO GRAPHIC in 2002, she works on various projects. These involve, among her own art creations, working on commercial ad illustrations, packaging design, interior design, as well as diverse brand design projects. She also organises events and art exhibitions.

In 2010, Emi composed several artworks, wall designs and the overall brand identity for THE GREEN LEAF NISEKO VILLAGE hotel renewal project. In addition, the hotel was awarded 5 stars in Best Hotel Interior during the International Hotel Awards in 2011.
