Steve Mealy is the Public Sector Creative Director for IBM’s Global Business Services consulting practice. He works on a team of strategists, user researchers, analysts, and UX designers focused on creating innovative solutions to business challenges using human-centered Design Thinking methodology. These solutions help transform the way organizations provide services, develop products, streamline processes, and launch go-to-market strategy.
In 2016 Steve earned the distinction of becoming an IBM Design Thinking Leader as he and the team facilitated dozens of “IMAGINE A WORLD” campaign sessions with organizations striving to course correct, evolve and grow. From the sessions Steve conceptualizes a solution by focusing on enhancing the user experience, analytical data, technological capabilities and economic viability. Once a solution has been vetted through the team, Steve then designs a Customer Journey Map to visually depict the solution from inception through implementation. This artifact is used to help clients visualize how to complete the journey from where they are today to where they need to be in the future. Steve’s unique solutions have positively impacted clients in the Federal government, intelligence community, healthcare and education industries.
Steve holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Advertising from the University of Maryland, and has completed enhanced training at Parson’s School of Design in New York. When not designing for UI or mobile, Steve enjoys illustrating children’s books; his most recent illustrations are featured in Marvelous Macie and Ella Turns 12. He lives with his wife and two young daughters in Virginia.
