Welcome to Modus 1.0
Modus 1.0 is finally here! The official release of Modus, the Trimble Design System has much to offer for designers, engineers, and product managers. We have listened to you and made significant improvements based on your feedback.
We have improved the aesthetic of the site and the navigation to account for additional content. It’s also much faster and mobile-optimized.
Modus is a community effort. Your contributions are key to the success of the design system. The new community section aims to improve and increase communication about our efforts, progress, and opportunities for engagement. Here’s where you’ll find information on how to contribute to Modus, submission guidelines, Tiger Team formation, Modus news, and updates.
In anticipation of adding more code libraries to Modus, we have separated the code from the style guide. It will also allow us to develop new component definitions and patterns independently of the development timeline.
To help your team build a culture of inclusivity for our customers, we have added accessibility guidelines and resources to Modus. We also revised every component to meet WCAG 2.1, Level AA standards.
To help Trimble build a consistent and branded icon library, we created icon design and usage guidelines.
The foundations section has expanded to include logo usage guidelines, writing and language style guide, responsive grid, and more. We also revised usage information for each component.
We added a site-wide search with an auto-complete function and filters to make it easier for you to find information. We will also be able to track search keywords to help us understand your needs.
Along with Sketch, Modus now offers a Figma library.
We want to hear from you, our users, so we can curate Modus to meet your needs: bring you new features, libraries, and components that you are looking for. In a few weeks, we will send out a survey. Please, make sure you make your voice heard and share your Modus experience with us.
