Hi everyone. I’m Karri Saarinen, a Finnish designer and developer living San Francisco.
In the past, I’ve worked with early stage startups, was a partner in a agency, co-founded Kippt & Inc (Y Combinator) and lead design at Coinbase. I co-started Rails Girls, a non profit for women & girls to get inspired about tech.
I’m currently working at Airbnb. Recently, I was involved in creating the new design language and building a component based design system around it. You can read the summary of the process on our design blog: Building a Visual Language Behind the scenes of our new design system
I’m happy to answer any questions you have about startups, YC, design systems, SF or anything else really :)
I’ll join in Tuesday around 12noon pacific and continue answering though out the day.
