My friends call me 'Mods'. Prefix 'Mod-' stuck to me because I like to modify, customize everything. I've attached Black Moon because Moon is the black soul of night, i enjoy silence and stillness... The Moon is near the Earth, but still far away, it's different, as me - I live with the other people, but I'm not with them... I'm with nobody - a lone wolf.
I've always been looking for something special - dark, mystic, melancholic, even before I've got into subcultures. So i've decided to do my own stuff.
I'm into Design since early 2005, after i quit working with hardware. Since then i've been working with few german, swedish, british and american studios, and not all of them were about dark design, some jobs were fashion and entertainment related. Nowdays i do alot of freelance jobs. I design web-site graphics, album artworks, band logos, fonts and many other graphics.
I was born in Eastern Europe about 30 years ago and was growing up in the beginning of 90s, so it was very tough time for somebody who has free spirit and open mind. People bullied everybody who was thinking different, who was dressing different, and who could have balls to say no when everyone else said yes. They tended to persecute everything they didn't understand. So that's one of the reasons why i don't work in Belarus. I hope someday everything will change and people will use their own brains to realize what they like and what they want.
In interface design I never try to make it an UFO-like, I just want to make it comfortable and interesting, but not as minimal as 'neutral style' corporate designs. I like more artistic, atmospheric styles. I like giving soul to my graphics. That's why i prefer to keep my freelance work as the Underground project.
In general i'm happy and pretty lucky person. But i can't say that i'm totally satisfied with life, because people always have to fight the society to stay independent and free. Trying to get away from society, but it finds you everywhere and tries to bend you, to use, to get a benefit from you. The main traits of modern society are greed, envy, thirst for gains, self-importance, guile and hypocrisy. I think it's just because most people want to show that they are very important, even if they are double zeros who did nothing in their lives.
I don't like these people and those who wants to look like someone, to look like masses and have no opinion because it's easier...
It does not mean, that I don't communicate with anybody, I spend alot of time with friends... But I become aggressive and short-tempered when I have to meet people too often, especially if i dislike them. I guess, the thing that keeps my friends with me is that there's no mask, u can learn me from the first minutes, but that frankness makes me rough. Almost everyone who can live with that fact is my friend.
Another my passion is music, basically Black Metal, Funeral Doom, Dark Ambient, Martial Industrial, Prog/Alternative Rock. The older i become the more genres i love, the more different styles i understand. My favourite bands are Anathema, Agrypnie, Paradise Lost, VAST, Nocte Obducta, Khold, Diary of Dreams, Behemoth, Nyktalgia, Satyricon, Solstafir, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio, Desiderii Marginis, Deathspell Omega, Hypnogaja, Black Lab, Anorexia Nervosa, Nortt, Antimatter and many many others. Music and Art is my Lifestyle, the blood in my veins.
Whenever i have free time i enjoy fitness, tattoo, RPG games like Skyrim, doing yoga, running. Overall i prefer healthy and fit lifestyle, no drinks, no junk food, no religion, no TV :)
I'm an Atheist. Religion makes people weak, forbids normal things. It kills personality and passion. It turns people into slaves, and those slaves shall serve for no one and for nothing. I want to live my own life the way I want it. It doesn't mean that I hate all the christians and muslims, i'm cool with those who can explain at least to themselves, why they have selected this way (if not because it has been selected in their family one hundred years ago).
