IA + design + diversity + inclusion + puns

Hello. Paul McAleer is a digital strategist, designer, information architect, and speaker based in Denver, Colorado.


Award-winning work.

I’m proud and humbled to share that the 3M intranet was chosen as one of the 10 Best Intranets of 2019 by Nielsen Norman Group. I was the Design Lead for this effort, overseeing and guiding content strategy, IA, visual design, research, and UX work. My team from Rightpoint were the stars here, and it was fantastic to work with such an esteemed organization in 3M. This is a true honor.

A hi-fi speaker.

I'm a noted speaker in the design community, with topics ranging from the creative process to what we can learn from how pants are sold (truly!) I've spoken at SXSW Interactive, Design & Content, CreativeMornings, WebVisions, and more. See the details.


In the lead.

With over a decade in user experience design & research, I've been faced with myriad challenges – from starting a design practice, to creating complex product hierarchies for commerce sites, to running intensive workshops with clients. Through it all, I sweat the details so we can not only research and plan well, but execute on designs that are meaningful. On top of that, I'm a UX teacher and educator, getting tomorrow's experts off on the right foot.

[Paul’s] the kind of leader you want on your team.
— Sarah Wallace, UX Director
