Squiddy built the site from the ground up using the WordPress platform, and designed the logo and all graphics, also managing creation of copy for blog articles and newsletters, as well as an ongoing web marketing strategy. This site has been built with a 5 year plan in mind, beginning with traffic generation and later developing into a subscription-based service, advertiser, and boutique talent agency.

Prion Pie
Prion Pie is the brainchild of a Melbourne music industry stalwart who wanted to create an online community for musicians to share their music and expertise. The site was built using WordPress and utilises the Buddypress social suite to enable most of the functions available in Facebook and Twitter. Members can interact with each other by becoming Friends or joining Groups and engaging in online discussions. They can also become Artists or Sponsors by creating and managing a page that showcases their band or business, and can upload their albums and link them to their Artist Pages, as well as specify a Paypal email address for automatic donations to their own Paypal account. Music downloads are donation-based and restricted to site members only, and this is one of the few sites you will find anywhere that provides CD quality audio for download. Powerful and complex, the site nevertheless has been designed to be managed by the average person. It utilises advanced custom fields and frontend posting to keep the complexities of code out of sight and out of mind.
