generally speaking, if you've seen the "design" work a developer does, than yes, I feel there most certainly is a place still for graphic designers.
that's not to say a developer cannot design, but more often than not, they suck.
As the aforementioned developer who's design skills are somewhat "challenged",
Ok, Ok, by "challenged" I really mean non-existent, I whole-heartedly agree with the above sentiments.
Sure developers can add all manner of CSS effects, fancy fonts, rounded corners etc, the problem is that developers will use them simply because they can.
The resulting layout very often features on here.
Every developer I know or have worked with do the same thing, they use "new" or "kewl" things with little or no concept of how it will affect the end product and have been as guilty as the rest on that.
Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you should.
Well I would say that we (who posted in that thread) are hoping not.
