Join MODA on the evening of Thursday, November 17 as Michael Jager, Chief Creative Officer of Solidarity of Unbridled Labour, discusses his work and his inspirations.
For more than twenty-five years, Michael Jager has been creating and collaborating with brands, driven by the idea that design distinction matters most. The groundbreaking work he did with Jager Di Paola Kemp Design continues with Solidarity of Unbridled Labour, a studio that conceptualizes and realizes ideas that help guide and create culture and positive change within it.
Guided by Ezra Pound’s simply but elegantly stated principle, “Make it new,” Jager's collaborative output for a multitude of today’s most recognizable and relevant brands—including Burton Snowboards, Microsoft’s Xbox, Nike, Levi’s, Phish, MTV, Virgin, Lululemon, Yara, Seventh Generation, and Patagonia—is recognized worldwide. Through Solidarity’s own brand-design incubation platform, Michael has helped create unique home, sport, and lifestyle brands, such as Mamava and Maglianero. Michael is also the cofounder of the Karma Bird House, a creative-economy co-working space now home to more than 70 inspiring entrepreneurial entities.
In 2014, AIGA-VT awarded Michael its first Fellow Award in Vermont, honoring him for his mentoring, community building, and advocacy in design. Michael lives in Burlington, Vermont, USA.
