Kelli Passalacqua

Graphic Designer


Kelli is a graphic designer with 20+ years’ experience designing visual communications for print and digital platforms, tradeshows, presentations, and social media. She agrees wholeheartedly with David Carson’s quip “Don’t mistake legibility for communication.” Kelli started at a small book publisher in Buffalo, NY, and then, shortly after graduating from college, worked as a graphic designer for a Maryland-based engineering firm. After some time with the White House Publishing Branch, Kelli spent most of her career at Nielsen as a graphic designer for the marketing communications team.
A long-time Howard County resident and mother of one son and a feisty, 5-pound Yorkie, Kelli is a fitness enthusiast who also enjoys golf and wine (aka “nine & wine”). She’s a huge football fan and loves the Ravens—much to the chagrin of both her husband and her son!
