Marketing is a 'Practise'/'Experience' - based business function. Theories like 4-Ps are only there as rooted foundations. A successful marketer has to have a decent understanding of many areas. Design is one of the most important ones. Especially in the world of startups and large corporations, design can make or break your campaigns or even your business.
