Designer / Draftsman Designer
Explanation:
A designer may be an engineer or an architect, or an industrial designer. The word "designer" is hard to deal with. Along my carrer as design/consulting engineer, "projetista" was a skilled technician, who did not necessarily prepare drawings (but that was long before CAD).

Take a look into this interesting interview:

"According to Mr. Wilson, several of the duties he has to perform as a draftsman designer include the ability to take the specifications for a particular job and turn them into a working design in such areas as designing a proper drainage ditch, rock embedments, rock drainage systems, and bulkheads for waterfront property, and the ability to take responsibility of supervising other draftsmen working under him."
