Hi all,

My company is current restructuring and my role has changed considerably in the past 8-9 months, so I have been advised that now could be a great time to lose the rather dated "webmaster" title.

The problem that I have is that I play a part in a number of things, and so I don't know how to actually 'brand myself'.

I created mockups / did wireframes / HTML prototypes
I created icon fonts / styleguide for the brand
I advise on the RWD route, pushing a mobile first approach / modernizr / response.js / RESS
I wrote all the nice CSS3 transitions for the site
I supply the ARIA roles
I ensure that the site is readable, working hard on bumping up the fonts, and also ensuring the colors work well together.
I sat in on the usability tests, and asked questions to the volunteers
Naturally as I worked on the layout, I also had to rework things on feedback (verifyapp), UI / UX etc.

I am really passionate in what I do, and spend hours outside of work, working on these skills, learning new ones, and always pushing forwards... the problem is that I play a part in a fairly broad range of things..... I write HTML / CSS / SCSS too.... what am I?!

What realistically should I approach the director with. I know that webmaster does not explain what I do.
