Storm are delighted to announce the launch of a new mobile phone sim only comparison website – www.simcardoffers.co.uk.
The site has been designed in house by our creative team, and put together utilising Storm’s bespoke website development tools – incorporating some engaging DHTML, Ajax and JQuery functions which give the web user a rich and interactive experience.
As part of the design, Storm has named the sites friendly character ‘Simmy’ – living, breathing sim card character who accompanies the user throughout the website journey.
Storm have partnered up with leading UK mobile providers O2, Orange, Vodafone, T-Mobile and Three to offer the best sim only deals, where the site visitor can filter and sort their options based on minutes, text, data allowance, price and more.
Manchester based media experts MediaVest have commissioned Storm to provide creative and build support to their website refresh.
MediaVest plan and buy advertising across the full spectrum of communications channels, from TV and newspapers through to the full range of digital offerings – and as part of their continuous brand developments, approached Storm to create a new website design that will easily integrate with their existing branding and logos.
The project utilises Storm’s experienced creative team to take a concise brief and produce a website theme that is both engaging and search friendly – ensuring W3C standards are maintained but allowing for a rich user experience.
The new MediaVest site is planned to launch in stages – the Storm creative allows for this due to the way that the source code and designs have been developed. The site concept is simple but striking, and the brand guidelines allow for a huge amount of flexibility when MediaVest decide to create a new page or section from their in house content management system.
“We have taken existing branding and styles, and moved them forward organically.” said Andy, Storm’s Head of Creative, “The new site creates a fresh feel but maintains a brand familiarity”.
MediaVest clients include Thomas Cook, Barratt Homes, Holland & Barrett , JD Williams, Hidden Hearing, Screwfix, Bradford Exchange, ghd, Bupa and more.

Storm strives to create websites that work. With this in mind, we have developed a core set of CMS modules which allow our clients to edit the content of their websites without compromising the design, accessibility and SEO aspects of the site.
Each CMS that Storm produce is different. We listen to the clients requirements rather than tell them what they need. The systems can be as simple or as complex as required, however – we always maintain that the client should be able to use the systems without any prior knowledge of websites or HTML – providing the user with an instantly recognisable interface. Any user that is familiar with applications like Word is able to update their website.
Our bespoke CMS systems incorporate cross platform editing, full audit and event history, multi-tiered user access, a secure administration area and the ability to integrate with CRM (customer relationship management) data and systems. These facilities will give clients the control and freedom needed to run their website exactly the way they want – whether it be simple text, integrated images or a more complete rich media experience.

Storm Marketing are proud to announce the release of their new website www.stormmarketing.com.
The site utilises a number of different client and server technologies to present a fresh and vibrant user experience that showcases Storm’s experience and talent.
Early reactions have been very positive, with users especially liking the personal profiles of the senior team at Storm.
“The concept for the site was very organic with ideas coming form every member of the team this made my job very easy (lie). Its always hard when the site is for yourself because you become the client from hell.” said Andy, Storm’s Head of Creative.
“I wanted the site to capture the ethos of storm and I think we have achieved that with the little tweaks like the illustrations of the team but also to show we are not just another marketing company. Another main part of the site was for it to fit in with the creative we already have, so there were no gaps between the offline and online creative.
The feedback we have been getting so far is good so lets hope that it continues, I have already starting thinking about the next version.“.
Storm have completed development of a bespoke print management application for midlands based print firm Lion FPG, allowing businesses such as Lloyds TSB, Towry Services and Arriva Trains.
The system, developed in PHP, allows the client to quickly and easily select printing and stationary requirements based upon pre-defined stock lists managed by Lion FPG. The user then submits the order online, which is instantly presented to the account manager for processing.
The system is fully content managed and allows printers to individually manage clients, stock lists and delivery information at the click of a button, taking feeds from their existing internal CRM systems.
Mark Jones, Customer Account Manager for Lion FPG said “Our customers love the new system, ‘very user friendly and much faster than the old site’. They particularly like the new feature of displaying images for each product listed. From our point of view its working really well, and comparing it to our old system it’s so much easier to update and manage “.
Storm have many years of experience providing Inventory Management and CRM systems for a diverse range of business and markets. To find out more about Web and Application development contact us on 01785 215 676 or click here.
