i'm jessica colaluca, and welcome to the newest chapter in my color loving life.

previous chapters include:
  1. graduating from the College for Creative Studies with a BFA in Industrial Design 
  2. working as a designer at Ford, Reebok, and Timberland
  3. going rogue and starting a design consultancy in 2009
  4. launching Design Seeds, a color and inspiration site, in May of 2009
  5. said color & inspiration goes viral, receiving 1-2 million pageviews per month for the next decade, while I gain over 1.5 million followers across social
  6. blogging, social media'ing, & working with some cool clients
  7. after putting Design Seeds "on hold," i returned to my roots exploring the pure joy of color, and shared it here on HI HUES (through my photography, edits, and color swatches)
chapter now:  Design Seeds has been rebooted, i'm grateful to still be working with some cool clients, & you can find my work around the interwebs through collaborations :)

i also founded ASTER CROW in December of 2023, am a researcher at our Historical Society, & partnered with a dear friend to run the gift shop at our Depot museum (where you can find unique, locally inspired Aster Crow pieces). 

modern color + analogue happy = HI HUES

thank you for exploring :D
