    Web design is pretty pictures.
    Web development is where the real work is done.

    So if you're lazy and can talk a good game, become a web designer. If you actually want to solve problems and do work, become a web developer.

    Well, that's a little biased... lol

    Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks.
    But of course, if you dig deeper, itís really how it works.

    web design is about the "visual" aspects of the industry... graphics and basic layout

    Development is more about the inner workings, scripting languages, sometime DB related stuff, basically taking the visual stuff and applying all the effects, interactions, transactions, etc...

    Designers are a dime a dozen ( not meaning that hateful, just a fact )... basic web design is taught from middle school and up... some college curriculum offer intermediate design courses... but development is only taught in specialized courses... and very little of those

    A good designer is going to be aware the the development process and a good developer is going to be aware of the design process and on rare occasions you might find a developer that is also a designer.... but rarely will you find a designer that can do in depth development work.
