about jessica

jessica colaluca


welcome to the Fresh Hues blog where i share my views on color & inspiration. my name is jessica, and i am creator of Design Seeds.


i  began Design Seeds in May of 2009 as a way to bring a unique voice and experience to design blogging. through Design Seeds, i create daily inspiration for all who love color. the Fresh Hues blog is an extension of the site where i share mood boards inspired by Design Seeds palettes, color inspiration called *brushstrokes*, quotes i find inspiring, and just about anything that piques my interest or captures my imagination.


i have a passion for color, and am fortunate to have sustained a career working in color trend and forecasting. my design experience extends beyond color having graduated from the Center for Creative Studies with a BFA in Industrial Design. my career began in the studios of Ford Motor Company, and i had gone on to work at several companies including Timberland and Reebok. i went “on my own” in 2009 and have been consulting through Seed in a diversity of industries on brand, trend, color, design, and social media.


it is a thrill to be able to share with you my colorful creative journey here on Fresh Hues … thank you for exploring!
