What are the differences between web designer and web developers?

The difference is whatever you want the difference to be. Because those titles don't make me squat. They are the same job in some places. Elsewhere, the designer simulates it in Photoshop and the developers encodes it in CSS and HTML. In some places, a designer executes the layout (HTML) and the developer executes the backend logic (PHP or something similar).

The titles mean nonsense in the web / software. Role and profile competencies matter. Even then, expect to do other random things based on requirements. The smaller the activity, the more likely you are to find other things to do.
