Business Cards, Oooh Fancy…


Near the end of last semester I designed business cards to have ready to hand out at AIGA’s Portfolio 1-ON-1. One of my main goals with the business cards was to come up with some creative way to illustrate that I am a designer and a photographer. I am also quite fascinated by spot uv coatings. And how can you resist the rounded corners and silk coating. I ordered the cards through I am very satisfied with their service. They were quick and the cards look amazing. The colors were spot on too. There is only one small printing error on the spot uv on the back. But I am probably the only one that will notice. Enjoy!

Aluhu who? The first blog post


Hello. I would just like to give you a warm welcome to Aluhu Creative. This site is designed and maintained by Multimedia Designer Colin Schye. Here you will take a virtual visual ride along with me as I travel through life. I desire to share with the world my passion for art and design. Within this blog I hope to not only showcase my final work but the experiments and processes I practice to achieve the results you see. Wear sunscreen.

My name is Colin Schye. I am a designer and photographer that recently graduated from the School of Art and Design at the University of Wisconsin - Stout. I graduated from the Multimedia Design program with a minor in Applied Photography. I am currently working as a Designer at Morsekode in Minneapolis.

As an artist in today’s society, I use my surroundings paired with my eye for detail to create art in many different ways. From drawing to technologically based art, my passions exceed far beyond the scope of normality. Relying solely on one type of medium does not satisfy my craving for originality and creativity. Gaining inspiration from different environments and people and the feelings they evoke is what gives my work a unique feel. My style is constantly changing as I experience different aspects of life and thus my artwork is always adapting to reflect these changes.

My work efficiently combines the usability and functionality of design with the beauty and marvel of art. I strive to create pieces that are clean and simple, yet appealing and memorable. By doing so, I leave my audience with a lasting impression that encompasses not only my passion but also my values in life. Working with different mediums, I am able to design truly unique pieces. My designs have evolved through exploration and instruction. They will continue evolving so long as I am determined to see past the initial, and most obvious, view of the world.
