DVD Boxcover Artwork
Asian Addiction is a 3.5 hour compilation containing 8 scenes from across the Harmony Films archives. It was originally released in 2016 and featured a huge international cast including Sharon Lee, Alina Li, Marika Has, Priva, Jayden Lee, Alina Henessy, Jandi Lin, Lady May, Ian Tate, Tony De Sergio, Marco Banderas, Yanick Shaft, James Dean, John Strong, Oliver Sanchez, George Uhl and Hard On Harrish.
As with all compilation DVD's, it is absolutely essential to convey the sheer content and production value of the product. With the cast list being such a high number of equally successful porn stars, I decided to use a handful of particularly well composed photographs for maximum effect. I wanted the consumer to feel as if they could embark on a voyage of discovery.
I performed market research on a number of Japanese, Chinese and Thai films and felt that the cult-classic movie 'Fallen Angels', directed by Wong Kar-wai, artistically was the perfect tone for this DVD packaging. I wanted to pay homage to such an amazing film and to produce a sophisticated design that would reflect the mystery and wonder of this beautiful setting.
I used a wash of bright, warm colours to add energy to the Tokyo street which set the stage for the composition. I used lanterns to give the concept an authentic feel and a thin layer of mist to add intrigue and suspense.
The title itself is made up of sumi ink, most often found in traditional Japanese calligraphy. The shape loosely defines the outline of a dragon, which I brought to life with a single lens flare that compliments the A.

If design and marketing doesn’t work, why are you working so hard to get that dream life? Where do you think your dream came from exactly?
