A former co-worker of mine told me about a company that had an in-house development staff doing web sites and the such, and that they were turning away projects because they were backlogged. They primarily focus on asp type sites from what the friend told me.

A little background on myself, I am a programmer that has been turning out web-based applications for the last 4-5 years. I do not possess high graphical skills but I can turn out code.

Well, to make a long story short this is the response I got from a representative of the company, "However, we are looking for Web Designers and it is clear looking at your resume you are a programer not a web designer."

So I would like to turn to all of you as to what you define a designer as versus a programmer of web-based applications? Is it just the difference in graphical skills? Is this just a polite brush off?

Any feedback is welcome and appreciated. Thanks.
