Simply put, my philosophy of design is: "SELL IT"
I do not currently have a broad marketing background. I know markets well for very specialized areas, but fear not; I've honed a skill for coaxing marketing information from people. There is someone in your organization that knows what they are selling and who they are selling it to and I'm confident that I can get this information from most people, even if they're not aware that they know it :)
In regards to web design, I make sure that the content is developed using the latest standards and is accessible to everyone. No browser is left out no matter how small it's market share or how difficult it is to code for.
