I understand GWT produces complete ajax aplication from java code.
How can we fit graphic designer role in GWT paradigm?

If the graphic designer knows CSS, then you're set, since most of the layout and L&F can be tweaked through CSS (assuming the developer set all the css tags when building the application)

If you are using GWT widgets to build the entire app, then yes, CSS is the way to go. Each of the core widgets has a CSS class associated with it, and GWT allows you to add additional CSS classes to panels/widgets as needed.

The other way is to mix GWT code with HTML content. A GWT app doesn't need to take over the whole page, it might only be contained in a single DIV in the page. They designer would design everything in the page, except the area where the GWT app will appear, then uses CSS to style the app.
