Aloha, Oregon, Summer 1994… Rick Reese, a sports obsessed family man and factory worker who was once a top baseball prospect, re-ignites a bitter grudge match with his estranged childhood friend Alex Winfield. Alex, however, is no longer just a hometown rival. He’s a beloved major leaguer and outspoken proponent of the ongoing MLB player strike. From the small-town soapbox of his weekly pickup game involving a ragtag squad of ball-hounded stooges known as the Sunday Hoppers, Rick challenges Alex's legacy to distract from not addressing his own and gets far more than he bargained for. Set within a backdrop of baseball history and Americana, Sunday Hop, is a gut-thumping comedy about friendship, family, and the persistence of chasing a dream.
Dads/grandpas, baseballl fans/parents, anyone interested in general comedy, sports fiction, 90s nostalgia.

I found Zelena by looking at her portfolio samples, and thought her work looked attractive. This is my second consecutive project with her now, and I find that not only does she do good work, but she is easy to work with, as well as flexible in offering alternative elements to try in any design. She's a good partner, and productive.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
