I personally don’t think a graphic designer should be involved in the process, as it is most likely they don’t have the knowledge if it is capable for some of their designs to work when implementing into the build. A web designer, is a designer who designs specifically for websites and has at least the basic coding knowledge of css, html and javascript for web development.

A UI designer, will decide on key decision making on the functionality of the site and the journey through each page. The web designer may already have this experience under their belt, but with more technical websites with payment journeys, CTAS, sign ups etc, it may require the assistance of an experienced UI designer.
