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
chapter now: after closing the Design Seeds chapter, I returned to my roots exploring the pure joy of color, and share it here on HI HUES through my photography, edits, and color swatches. 

i founded ASTER CROW in December of 2023. while still freelancing on design and branding ... I am also a researcher at our local Historical Society, can crochet a mean afghan, and produce events & promote talent within Wisconsin's radiant LGBTQ+ community. 

modern color + analogue happy = HI HUES

thank you for exploring :D
