    Your idea of what a web designer is.

    This might sound goofy, but I wanted to try something. I want to get a bunch of responses that link each other into a solid definition / or a loose definition of what a web designer is. So I would start it off by saying, A web design is..

    Then someone would reply with a statement or a few words, and eventually it would build up to a nice big definition. So I will start it up



    "A web designer is..."

    and to be accessible to as many as possible.
    I don't buy that.

    A web designer is someone who makes web pages and web sites for people to use, taking into consideration their needs; both in terms of function and aesthetics.

    (Where it has to be accessible and usable to function. In most cases.)

They enjoy their job and use their own creative styles and techniques to implement ideas into client’s designs.

    a person who designs webpages.

    now if you want to define an advanced/pro web developer, that's a whole other definition.

    What's your definition of "design", in the context of web sites?

    web designer is one who creates look and feel, including useability and related topics: navigation, click paths etc, for a website .

    When you open up html or what ever code you become a coder and not a designer even if it is notepad and basic html.
