Can u really tell the difference between a developer and a designer strictly from their appearance?

I know that Designer = Presentation. Developer = Everything else. I never noticed it till now, but i recently heard that designers are "metro" and developers as "office slums". Judging by this site, theres quite a few individuals who still fit in this category. :blink:

Being a developer myself, i can understand what they are trying to say. Posted up a picture of myself just to see what becomes of it and already getting feedback that people a guessing me correctly. :whistling:

I'm trying to figure out the difference between the two myself... if i am going to hire someone to build a medium-sized website... i guess the size of ratemyprofessor.com... and make the design appealing at the same time... who do i hire? I know I need a programmer... but do all web designers know how to program? Or are they just there to "design" the site... If so, do I hire them first and then send the project to a programmer?

imo theres definitely people out there who can do both designing and coding aspects, and people look to hire them too (its cheaper). but in most cases ull use a designer to design the site than pass it onto the coders to make it work.

my general feedback from the site has been mainly developers, shows about my appearance lol.
