LAUREN "REN" HACAGA

     Born in sunny Southern California within minutes of Santa Monica, Lauren Hacaga is a creative soul and upbeat artist currently residing in Los Angeles, California. Since launching her professional career as a designer in 2011, Lauren has contributed to multiple companies spanning from corporate to startup, providing a fresh stroke of color and sleek composition to many visions.
    Recently, she has taken up managerial and media coordination for "artist alley" arrangements at venues during video game tournaments, particularly at the Genesis Gaming and Shine events.

PROFESSIONAL

     Lauren has designed a plethora of genre-bending imagery ranging from shirt designs for caster duos and community figureheads to Twitch layout and button designs for professional players and content creators such as Mike Haze, Scar & Toph, Smash N' Splash, Panda Global, Royal Flush and more.
     Before smash, most of her graphic design experience was attained through corporate work at Yafa Pen and Lava Heat Italia, assisting logo conception and design as well as catalogue and website layouts.

FREELANCE

     Upon entering the Super Smash Bros. scene in 2006 and developing her personal flair as a tournament organizer, graphic designer and fan artist, Lauren has made an impact on the ever-growing smash community the game has fostered over the years. She can typically be found attending events as an exhibitor: vending prints, charms and stickers allowing fans to decorate and personalize their belongings with her creations.
