week #15 – @naemirey / Naemi


Who are you and where do you come from?
I’m Naemi Reymann and I live and work as an self-reliant communication designer in Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine-Westfalia, Germany. For more than ten years I worked for different agencies and an international culture festival, the »Ruhrtriennale«. My design motto is information through entertainment. As a scubadiver and environmentalist I try to combine design works with water themes. Knowledge and culture are keys to sustainable education and development. Especially water, the »Blue Gold« is an important subject of our future, it’s life and one of our most our most important resources at our blue planet. I try to support awareness for this important resource by design. And I love water :-)

Share your twitter account with us and tell us what you are twittering about:
@naemirey: Most of the time I twitter about water and design themes, especially green design and sustainability. My tweets are in german, english – sometimes french and dutch. I like interculturally and interdiciplinary dialogues :-)

@Kopfweide1: I twitter together with Silke Bicker (we are co-moderators at a german community about environmental education at Xing). »Kopfweide« is our blog with reviews about media concerning nature, water and design.

Tell us about your creative side: What inspires you?
Journeys, exhibitions, art, good scenography, cinema, books (we have a great library here :-), history (underwater archaeology and tuareg culture) – and beeing underwater. It’s fascinating to watch marine flora and fauna. As a apnoe or scubadiver you are able to get unusual perspectives. Sometimes it’s tricky, especially if you work underwater. I took part at reef checks, clean ups, an astronaut test and an archaelogical survey until now. (Under)water worlds can be very inspiring for designers – making drawings (with a pencil), taking photos, making measurement and more. Underwater worlds are endangered and fragile and also wonderful and relaxing.

Time travel: Where would you go to?
To the explorers of the »Ulubrun« wreck at the 80ies. The Late Bronze Age shipwreck from late 14th century BC is found at Mediterranean Sea close to Turkish coast and a eastern Greek island. I’ve heard much about these excavations…
Also a journey to the 40ies and 50ies when »modern« Scuba Diving started at Mediterranean and Red Sea. It would be great to be in a diving team with Lotte and Hans Hass, Jacques Yves Cousteau, Dr. Sylvia Earle or Honor Frost…

Name your favorite present book:
»Bicycle Diaries« by artist and singer David Byrne
»Das Lesikon der Visuellen Kommunikation« by Juli Gudehus, a german designer who works very conceptual.

Which tweeter would you recommend for @createandrotate and why?
@frauvogel a »Kulturnerd« from Cologne, she’s involved in several nice projects between art, design and new media.
And it would be very interesting read tweeds by creative Māori from New Zealand!
