Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
From a PN point of view, there is a difference between 'designer' and 'designed'. Designer as an adjective implies that some ponce has added a label and bumped up the price. Designed, on the other hand, means refined in some way in order to improve.

And indeed 'designing' as an adjective applied to a person implies selfish scheming. The Great Designer, of course, is god, who is more into shellfish scheming.

No doubt other PNers will be able to dissect these points ad nauseum which literally means totally sick of marketing.

BTW Afew is indeed a KC and entitled to be addressed as Me Duck, and to receive a large Melton Mowbray pork pie from the Crown each Easter under a statute from 1706.

You can't be me, I'm taken

As long as the pork pie doesn't date from 1706 (vintage?), and is accompanied by a nice piece of Stilton, His Duckship will graciously deign to accept the Crown's gift.
