About Me

I’m Viljami Salminen, an independent design engineer from Finland, specialized in helping companies to build design systems. I’ve worked in the web industry for 15+ years and have designed websites and applications 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 organizer of Helsinki Design Systems Meetup.

During the past years I’ve created many popular open source tools such as Vue Design System, 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 18 years. ❦
