The Morpht Story

Back in 2011, Drupal 7 was released. Drupal launch parties were held around the world – bringing local communities together. One such party was held at the Lord Nelson pub in The Rocks, Sydney. At that party the Morpht founders, Marji and Murray, first met and naturally began talking Drupal and where it may go in the future. The feeling was very positive. Drupal was on the ascendancy with adoption increasing in government and the enterprise. There was a very strong community around Drupal and new systems which shipped with it.

One year later, in February 2012, Morpht was founded and incorporated. Director meetings and code development were done around the kitchen table. Marji had expertise in sysadmin and devops and Murray have a background in web development and knowledge management. In the early days Morpht had an extremely high engineer to sales ratio to say the least! The company was exclusiely focussed on technical delivery of websites and platforms.

Since that time Morpht has increased in size to be a full service agency, specialising in Drupal. Our team has increased to include an account and business manager, UX designer, visual designer, technical architect and additional developers. We are now able to offer clients an end-to-end service, guiding projects from discovery through to deployment.

GovCMS

We have been iterating on our approach for many years and have rebuilt our toolset many times over. In 2017 the strategic decision was to move to the GovCMS8 platform as the starting point for our site builds. GovCMS8 provides a stable and simple base from which to work from. It supports most if not all of the tools need to implement the standard Morpht recipe. 

Then in 2018, Morpht won the contract to build the GovCMS UI-Kit Starter theme - an implementation of the Design System, developed by the Digital Transformation Agency. The chance to develop this theme opened the way for Morpht to introduce some of the concepts they had been working on previously. The theme has been released as open source and is part of the GovCMS distribution.

Since then Morpht has continue to develop implementations for a number of Government design systems Convivial for GovCMS, Convivial for NSW, and Convivial for Health. These starterkit sites have gone on to power many prominent sites in the federal and state jurisdictions. 

Personalization

Convivial is a personalization focussed Drupal 9 staerter kit. Convivial uses Bootstrap 5 and includes a number of components to deliver a personalised site out of the box, with the ability to track and customise content according to user interests and browsing history. It brings a lot of functionality to the table and is a lightweight alternative to monolithic systems offered by other vendors.
