Have I told you about the porn version of The Wizard of Oz I want to do, featuring the song "Swallow the Yellow Thick Load"? I think that governs the color choice for "Cum", but the tattered, sort of exit wound sloppiness of the font indicates the designer didn't appreciate the almost Nazi-like precision with which some of porn's male talent as well as myself employ. If the designer only knew, (he) would have used a much straighter, laser-edged font. Sans-serif.
I talked with graphic artist Alaska! about boxcover design.
"Somehow, typical porn box designers ruin every somewhat-cool font. It's quite the phenomenon," he said. When he worked for Hustler, he would typically spend a day on the box concept, half a day for research, and a week for the execution. He said it's different now. "I've held off using many fonts that I found to be 'too cool for porn'," he said.
Here at Gram Ponante Towers, we have named this font Gooramond Sticky.
