The Proper Authorities is the solo musical project of singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Keith Adams.
A from-the-ground-up promotional package for the musical release Public Service Announcement. E-commerce would not be directly required on a website, but links to existing sales outlets (on- and off-line) would need to be prominent.
A full-scale promotional package including brand development, web design, video production, disc design and manufacturing, and print materials.
A Proper Authorities logo and related branding were created. Branding for the band name and the actual CD were kept separate, in the event of subsequent releases.
The CD artwork was designed around the "living life to the fullest before time runs out" theme of the music, and FluidMedia handled the replication of the CDs.
A website was designed to push the album, provide listening/viewing samples, keep fans in tune with news and events, describe the writing/recording process, showcase awards and press garnered, and link to related websites. The latter was also done with search engine optimization (SEO) in mind.
Broadcast-quality music videos were subsequently produced for two of the singles: Devastate and The Ninth Life Jitters. These were posted online on various streaming sites, and also played on standard TV and short film programs.
A limited pressing of vinyl bumper stickers were also created as a handout, physically visible bit of advertising. Weather-proof and non-fading, a rare few of these can still be found on walls, doors, lampposts, and cars everywhere.
