I didn't get to work with Nel for long at KTVT but in that time I was very impressed with his drive and energy. This is a designer who is not content to pull the same old things from his bag of tricks over and over again, but will reach down give you something you didn't even know you wanted and it will look great. This is the highest praise I can give a designer.

Nel's talent and ability changed my perception of what was possible at a local television station. His technical skill combined with his artistry greatly expanded the vision and capability of the creative services department at KTVT/KTXA, permanently raising the bar for both stations. No concept was above his grasp, no challenge beyond his ability and every project exceeded my expectations. His efforts were instrumental in developing the award-winning, nationally-recognized brand of KTXA-TV

Nel Santiago is simply one of the most talented individuals I have ever worked with in my career bar none. I credit him directly for the path I embarked on many years ago on the way to me becoming a director. He is the one who taught me to think outside the box and not to be afraid to take chances. For over a decade, he's been my go-to guy for my biggest projects. Everything from designing my film poster for my first feature, to creating the look and feel for my Emmy Award-Winning original 1-hr show - 'Viewfinders' . I met him at CBS Miami where we won numerous awards together and broke new ground. Since news I have worked with him with A list rock bands, GUI design and user experience, movie posters and marketing materials, logo design, full graphics custom packages, business materials, websites and animations. Every single thing I have done with him had been better than I imagined it.

I just give him a basic idea of what I am looking for and then I let him run with it. You need to trust him and not confine him to a box. Give him your concept and watch him run with it. Not once have I ever been disappointed. I recommend him for any project and I am proud to say that some my best work has been directly tied to him. He is a true visionary who is always re-inventing himself. His latest creation is Promo HD. I invite everyone to watch his reel, see his vast samples of his work and to be inspired by him. I would not be where I am today if it weren't for Nel Santiago

Nel is a very detail oriented and extremely talented designer. He is also very talented at guiding co-workers through all areas of the design process. Nel is also very open to share knowledge and ideas to anyone willing (or lucky enough) to learn from him. His work is always outstanding and in a league of its own. I have personally learned a lot from him during the time I have worked with him.

I had the pleasure of working with Nel at KXAS-NBC5 in DFW. Although we were in different departments, Nel made himself available anytime I needed assistance. Creative as he is technical, skilled as he is patient - Nel was someone I could rely on. In the fast-paced, high-pressured world of news, where deadlines are critical and one mistake can cost you your place... I was grateful to have Nel in my corner. He is a perfectionist minus the grating Type A personality. He helped me learn and grow as a TV professional. Even after our tenure at NBC, Nel continued to help me on his own time - and dime, with various professional projects.


He has a heart as big as his diverse, exceptional portfolio. Nel has graciously donated his expertise pro-bono for various non-profit projects during the years when asked.


Nel chose to work with vulnerable survivors of domestic abuse out of altruism. And I only ever had to ask ONCE. I am grateful on a professional level that I can call on him; and more so that I can call him my friend..
