Morpht has long been a strong advocate of GovCMS and design systems, championing the benefits of known stable patterns for building websites. Through the utilisation of components and design patterns vast efficiencies can be attained. Website implementations can then focus on what is unique in the project's requirements. Why reinvent the wheel when there are more important problems to solve?

Morpht has distilled its knowhow into Convivial, a starter platform for Drupal builds. Convivial focuses on reusable components and editor-friendly tools to build out flexible and attractive sites. Over the years we have extended its capabilities to include personalisation and AI integrations to deliver engaging user experiences.

Convivial comes in many flavours as we have adapted it to a variety of design systems:

  • Australian Government Design System
  • GOLD
  • NSW Design System
  • Health Design System
  • Bootstrap 3
  • Bootstrap 5
  • and now CivicTheme.

CivicTheme is the richest and most opinionated design system Convivial has been adapted to. CivicTheme ships with a set of components which are suited to building attractive sites quickly.

We have developed Convivial for GovCMS over a three week period and have managed to integrate many useful components and approaches which define Convivial. We look forward to working with it more in the future and contributing to its progression as an open source project.

Please take the time to look around this site to see some of our work. We look forward to your feedback and are happy to discuss any questions you may have about it.
