GravDept is the working space of designer / entrepreneur Brendan Falkowski. That’s me. I run a nimble, skilled, and highly responsive practice crafting fine web experiences.
My background was formed on self-directed design study and a passion for handcrafting websites. I coupled that with a university education and work experiences at a handful of Fortune Global 500 companies.
Altogether, I’m business-minded and technically adept with creative energy in heaps. I seriously love my job.
A brief history
The year was 2003 and I was sixteen. I took an Internet Programming elective, won the computer fair, and wound up in the state finals. My first part-time job was freelance web development.
I studied Information Sciences & Technology at the Pennsylvania State University and abroad at the University of New South Wales. My concentrations were enterprise systems integration, technology consulting, and entrepreneurship; and I earned a business minor.
By twenty-two, I had worked for AccuWeather, Deloitte, Disney, General Electric, and Credit Suisse but corporate values left a heart-shaped void. With a renewed passion for web strategy and design, Gravity Department was formed in 2010.
I like to organize photographs on maps, restore a suitably aged motorcycle, and lift about 45,000 pounds/week in the gym. I lived on Sydney’s seaside for my part, and travel about six weeks of the year. I reference the ‘Lord of the Rings’ narrative eleventy-one times per day.
