I think they are called computer programmers...
  "specialists in transformations of structured and semi-structured data

Graphic Artist - Makes Pictures to meet the needs of desiger.
Web Designer - Arranges Pictures and Text "Interior Designer for the House
of Browser".
Programmer - Arranges computer instructions so that data can be transformed
into a format 				required by a designer.
Usability Consultant - Measures user interaction to make recommendations for
improvement to 
			the designer.

Sometimes you wear all hats.

Just as before print, we had no authors, editors, copy-editors, 
fact-checkers, catalogers, typographers, or booksellers, but only writers, 
librarians and readers (usually rolled into one as a "scholar"), it may be 
that we will soon be seeing whole new categories of work, including both 
new kinds of designer, and specialists in transformations of structured and 
semi-structured data sets.

The skills of what we now call a "web designer" -- who may be brilliant 
communicators in visual media without being particularly good at abstract 
reasoning -- may or may not be appropriate for much of this work.
