Do most interaction designers also deliver graphical design

I am in the early stages of a new product ( to create online 3D virtual
art galleries ) using a click and drag interface.
Think of it as similar to Powerpoint, instead of a new page you create a
new room, and pick it's template etc.
The design of the UI will be pretty graphical, and will incorporate some
real-time 3D aspects ( not just for previews ). For a view of the end
gallery, but with a lot more photo realism, see http://www.candointeractive.com/investni ( NOTE: we are developing the
application, that creates this type of content )
As a software architect, I normally handle this myself ( this is also
due to the heavy prototyping nature of the application, and the
relatively short timescale... if a UI has been designed for a feature
that isn't possible to be implemented in the predicted manner, then it
needs to be updated = additional cost if that part is outsourced )
Back onto topic, when you guys deliver your part of the interaction, do
you typically also get invovled with the design aspects? I am assume
that a large part of your backgrounds would be in design.
BTW I've just had to re-sent this, who is the UI designer in charge of
the list who hasn't set up the reply-to to reply to the list! Sort of
