About Me

I’m Viljami Salminen, a Product Designer from Finland living in San Francisco Bay Area. I’ve worked in the web industry for 13+ years and have designed websites and apps for start-ups and companies of all sizes. My core belief is that all content on the web should be accessible to anyone using any kind of device to access the internet.

I work at a design studio called Viljami S. Design, a company that I founded. I’m also an author at Smashing Magazine and the founder of the Helsinki Device Lab, which was established to help web designers to be able to test their work on the ever-growing range of mobile devices.

During the past few years I’ve created many popular open source tools such as Legibility App, Feature.js, Responsive Nav, Responsive Slides, Tiny Nav, Remote Preview and Molten Leading. These tools are being used by the jQuery Foundation, Microsoft, AT&T, U.S. government, Pingdom, Engadget, Converse and TED to name a few.

In everything I do, I’m constantly inspired by the music and artworks of the 1950’s and 60’s jazz vinyls. Especially the records that Blue Note Records released during that time are close to my heart. I’ve also been a collector of 12" vinyls for over 16 years. ❦
