Around here, a common job ad for a contractor goes "must be in office 
for initial meeting and 1 to 2 days per week".  They're fine with some 
or all of the work being from home, but want to meet in person initially.

Very few advertise a salaried position as full telecommute for web 
design.  Working from home 2 or 3 days a week is a common perk, though. 
  There's a few for more menial tasks like data entry, that also have 
really easily measurable deliverables for each day (20 articles a day, 
500 forms a day, etc.).  I do know a number of people (web designers and 
non) who telecommute either part or full time, but it's usually after 
working somewhere for a while in office, then something coming up that 
makes telecommute more convenient for one or the other party... and 
everyone agreeing to the idea.
