Russell launched the company in 2002, initially building hard-coded, static websites for clients.
Storm then started to use a CMS called Mambo, which was alot easier for building client sites.
Joomla! 1.0 was released on September 22, 2005 as a rebranded release of Mambo 184.108.40.206.
At the time, there were lots of agencies who were working with Drupal and Wordpress, but not many had started to support Joomla (not many do now either). So Russell decided to build Storm to work exclusively with Joomla and that is still the case today.
16 years later, Storm is still going from strength-to-strength.
We have a client portfolio of over 40 and a website portfolio of several hundred!
We have built websites for local companies, to multi-million businesses. We've built online applications using Joomla, through to a website promoting a Ridley Scott movie.
Our passion for Joomla still continues today and with the latest release of Joomla, we are still being impressed by what this amazing CMS can do.
