Love Beta
The consciousness of chaos, the killing of curiosity...
Love, desire and other design stories.

In a world of seemingly infinite knowledge access, somehow true curiosity is being choked from our lives and processes.
Still the cumulus of our consciousness flows ever forward, a beautiful place where bold design is in permanent beta.
Can design do more?
Can designers change realities?
Can we help ourselves and others feel something?
Anything?
Or are we all part of some diabolic scheme?

About Michael Jager: 
Co-Founder and Creative Director

For more than twenty- five years, Michael Jager has been creating and collaborating with brands, driven by the idea that design distinction matter most. His groundbreaking work with JDK Design (Burlington, VT) 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,” his 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. He is also the cofounder of the Karma Bird House, a creative-economy coworking space now home to more than 70 inspiring entrepreneurial entities.
