Web Development, UI/UX, Design, Photography & Video
Only High Quality Work.

Awesome, imagination-thriving, mind-blasting
web development, design and UI/UX solutions...

...don't come easy. They require time and dedication.


Let's say you have an online project or a business idea, but you're not sure how to make it happen. You'll need a know-it-all. When I say know-it-all, I mean: marketing and branding strategies; server setup and customization; UI/UX and full web development for regular browsers, mobile phones and tablets; web security; SEO; youtube ad and video creation; web traffic and, most importantly, web lead generation. It's either one person, an agency or a group of employees. I am the first. My name's Arkadi Pasternak a.k.a. Nookeen and this is what I do. This is what I am skilled at. Only high quality work, guaranteed.

Just a few words...

...about where I get my mojo

That would be me

I grew up in Moscow, Russia. As a child I was dragged to numerous art museums, churches, temples, cathedrals, and country estates that belonged to famous writers, poets, and artists. It was also the time when Russia was changing very rapidly allowing, Western products to fill the hungry post-Soviet markets. Moscow got filled with new expensive foreign cars, Modern architecture, European fashion, and many other gadgets that looked very different from everything I had seen locally. It all had interesting designs, shapes and features. The juxtaposition of rich Russian culture and European Modern design helped me develop a very unique artistic view.

Q: Hey Ark, in your opinion, who is
the most influential printer
and publisher?

A: The FED.

— Stop wasting your time sitting in front of a computer and go to bed!

Had I have known that web development would become my career, I'd have had such a great excuse!

The Gathering

It all started with me getting hooked on Blizzard's Diablo and StarCraft PC games. I got so into multiplayer gaming that I even created my own clan, a gaming comminity if you will, the Brotherhood of Babylon5 (B5 fan!). Due to a large following of the TV series, my project was aquiring new members really quickly. At one point, we took the 3rd place in a national ranking, compiled by a famous Russian gaming magazine. So like every decent gaming organization, we needed a website. Using Photoshop 3.x, HTML, CSS and Java Applets, I created my first website and published it on Angelfire and then Geocities. That's when I got obsessed with web design and web technologies. I was constantly improving my creation, learning new code, ditching Java Applets for Flash, experimenting with Javascript, PHP, talking to other web designers, learning from them. But that was just a beginning...

So kids, it's play time!

Nice and simple. Quick and sweet.
You just tell me what you need.
You will get it right on time,
Looking grand and most divine!

Who said that video games and TV are useless? For me, they opened a door, which otherwise I might have never found. So viva Blizzard and Babylon 5! Where would I be without you...
