Content For anyone out there working in web design, would you be offended if I said that job-titling myself as a "web designer" seems so, well, amateurish? I've had to introduce what I do to people quite alot in recent months, and when it comes down to it, I've got issues calling myself a "web designer".

I've recently used this title reservedly because in one sense, it does basically describe what I (mainly) love doing in a nut shell - I design websites. People understand that a web designer designs websites. But this isn't all I do, and in fact, with this understanding that people have, I fear that the title "web designer" also has connotations of a job whose responsibility it is to create websites, no matter how bland or badly designed they are.
