IxDa-er: 1st interview with Marketing..

Hi everybody,

I am now defining my function as an Interaction Designer of a medium sized (300+ employees) company. I have now my first conversation with Marketing. I think I want to hear how they are confronted with the need for an improved presentation and usability. I am curious to hear how the house style is developped to what it is now, what the design rationale is behind the current housestyle and where they think all products should go to (how much integration between products, how users should experience a software-suite etc).
