I’m Cathi Bosco and I want to put my user experience (UX) and design resources to work for you. If you’re looking for a team or team member, to bring design maturity and UX expertise to your existing teams, or you want us to come in on a per project basis, let’s go!
I have goals.
As a senior UX architect and Product Designer specializing in the WordPress ecosystem, I’ve had the pleasure to work with teams and clients at all scales and specialities from small teams to enterprise scale projects. I love creating beautiful, user-centric, performant, accessible, and secure sites that are also useful and solve both business and human problems. At heart, I am a teacher so presenting a facilitating important conversations and collaboration is my pleasure.
Our teams are all about empowering people to be able to amazing things on their own. We empower your teams to make your software easy for people to use to accomplish their tasks though heuristic evaluations and usability testing. We also specialize in value proposition definitions and communication. We love this stuff – content hierarchy and content strategy are critical!
I create .
Most recently, at UXATT where our team has co-founded a dynamic design collective. Through project work with mid to large scale technology companies, digital product owners or plugin companies and e-commerce website owners we provide design project service engagements like:
- usability testing
- Heuristic evaluations
- research and analysis
- journey mapping
- Content strategy
- UX writing
- visual design
- live collaboration workshops – we embed with your team often
We also individually speak publicly and advocate for the open web, usability, inclusion, and accessibility standards. We are accepting speaking engagement opportunities on a variety of topics including journey mapping, usability testing, incorporating a usability model and inclusive design principles in our work. We pull back the curtains and share our discussions publicly through our podcast Rethink.fm We are talking about the positive impact we can make together through usability research and design strategy and tactical work together.
In my current role at XWP I provide project work in the areas of UX Design & Research, Product Design and Consultation. We provide project work at enterprise scale for Publishers, Technology Companies and E-commerce sites.I also provide industry thought leadership through The Loop.
Over the past 20+ years I also owned & operated a studio turned agency called C&D Studios and co-founded our mobile apps and website company for doctors called Docs With Apps.
Beyond this work I also love:
- Web Stories and animation interactions
- interesting opportunities for our team at UXATT to collaborate with for high impact engagements
- to push the open web forward in healthy ways that empower people to be able to great things on their own
- to speak publicly and share work through case studies, teaching our tactical and strategic work for the purpose of empowering others Good UX = Good Business!

I give back.
