Longtime Las Vegas local and celebrated creative and graphic design director, Carlos Larios. He has worked with some of the best operators in the service industry business while designing and coordinating all creative and graphic design elements for a laundry list of popular past and present nightlife destinations.
It all started back in 2000 when he made the move to Las Vegas to help oversee the creative and graphic initiatives of the famed Club Utopia (Las Vegas' 1st Nightclub). From there he joined the team at RA Nightclub, formerly at the Luxor, as the team's Creative Director. This would lead to the same position within PURE Management Group, the operators of some of the country's hottest nightclubs. He would oversee the creation of all branding, development and advertising campaigns for over a dozen venues, while at the same time managing PMG's massive on-line marketing campaigns.
After 7 years at PMG Carlos took the position as the Director of Marketing & Advertising of a start up group called Diversified Las Vegas. In 3 years Diversified LV developed brands such as Confectionary retail giant, Sugar Factory, Sammy Hagar's Cabo Wabo Cantina in Las Vegas, Chateau Nightclub & Gardens at Paris Las Vegas and Gallery Nightclub at Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas. Mr. Larios spearheaded Advertising, Creative, Branding & Marketing.
With 11 years in Nightlife Experience Carlos decided to expand his horizons and take on Resort Marketing and Advertising. Carlos currently works at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas and specializes in Creative and Brand Development.
