What is Aemi ?

Aemi.dev is a personal blog / website focused on development and design. It is actually powered by WordPress and running on eponymous Aemi WordPress Theme. I understand that Aemi does not mean much but, in fact Aemi is a shorthand for “Aesthetic Minimalism”. It may sound a bit presumptuous so I would explain it better. Aemi.dev is not aesthetic neither minimalist. Aemi is the goal to reach in each of my project. I try to provide pragmatic products that are based on what is truly necessary for each of them.

The WordPress Theme

Keeping this in mind, the first product stamped Aemi is the Aemi WordPress theme available on WordPress Official Repository and on GitHub. I hope you like Aemi’s design and I suggest you to leave a comment on project pages to let me know how I can improve Aemi.

Also, as far as Aemi Theme is a WordPress Theme, Aemi’s design itself can be reused. It relies on Standard.css (maybe it already exists but I didn’t really looked for if it does), a CSS boilerplate available in Aemi Theme’s code and I used my own gist “Fonts.css”, that provides Inter font and some additional monospaced font (JetBrains Mono, Fira Code, Hack), as a clean and really good (in my opinion) basis to start a website design.

Who’s Behind Aemi ?

I don’t usually talk much about myself on social networks neither on Internet. But for once, I would let you know who I am.

My name is Guillaume COQUARD. I’m currently studying Cybersecurity & Artificial Intelligence in the first year of my Master of Science Degree in EFREI Paris (a private french engineering school). Also, I already have a Master’s degree in Computer Science from University of Paris Saclay in Evry-Courcouronnes, France. I learnt a lot about Algorithmic and Graph Theory there.

I also take to heart to help and support students in their life at the university. Therefore I’m currently the Honorary President of the student association of Computer Sciences Department of University of Evry.

I’m passionate about design, interface design and photography and I like to explore fulfilling new paths. Therefore, I put some links below to discover fields I cover.

LinkedIn – what I professionally went through.
GitHub – what I am working on.
Twitter – what I think about what I’m working on.
Instagram – what I share.
Flickr – what I share #2.
OpenSea – what I try to understand the NFT world.
Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer – when I tried to be a world-widely listened artist. (About that, I’m only the author of First EP, Stop Thinking and Printemps. Other musics that may be listed on these pages are not from me.)

That’s it. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
