History

About the founder

George Michael Brower (b. 1988) is a Brooklyn based artist making interactive experiences for the web and virtual reality. He is the founder of Always & Forever Computer Entertainment, where he practices a broad range of disciplines from motion graphics and music composition, to illustration and programming.

Before Always & Forever

George graduated from UCLA's Design Media Arts department in 2010 and began his career at Google Creative Lab working as a designer and developer. There, he contributed to some of the web's most celebrated interactive content, beginning with Arcade Fire's seminal web-based music video, The Wilderness Downtown. In addition to his work promoting Google Chrome, George released open source libraries for making art with code, and directed interactive advertisements that ran in Times Square on some of the world's largest digital billboards.

After Google

After 5 years with Google, George formed Always & Forever to pursue his interests in the absence of a brief. The studio's first VR project, called Playthings, has been exhibited at TriBeCa Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival and New York Fashion week. George is the recipient of the ADC Young Gun award, and was named one of Print Magazine's New Visual Artists under 30. He is a two-ime Webby Award winner for interactive art and currently serves on AIGA NY's Board of Directors.
