Kudos to those studios whose graphics departments design sleek yet understated box covers that serve to entice potential customers to their products. One such alluring example is Elegant Angel’s feature entitled The Bombshells 5 and is depicted below:

What I particularly like about the above image is the functional use of negative space. In other words, the cover is not crowded with too many illustrations nor is it too busy like certain other, lesser designs. The simplicity piques the viewer’s interest and makes them want to examine the content included in the movie. Elegant Angel is a good primer to consider in the course I’ve designated as Box Cover Aesthetics 101. Pay attention, apt students of pornography!

Another fine example to heed is titles from the New Sensations Romance  line. Take, for instance, the cover for The Laws Of Love shown below:

By having the performers shot fully clothed on the front cover, the studio lends something to the imagination of the viewer. While other studios may feature more graphic covers with all sorts of sexual activities emblazoned on the front, the New Sensations Romance line invites the user to explore the content to see what lurks inside. It also adds the romance aspect to porn and shows that sex isn’t always just fucking!

That’s all for this edition of Box Cover Aesthetics 101, folks. More to cum later!
