>carry out/perform/do/design system architecture. Take your pick.

not to be argumentative (well, that too ;), but one of the things we do all of the time is try to find a single word which will substitute for two or more. thus, 'architect' [or something more worthy] = 'carry out/perform/do/design system architecture'. using 'design', by itself, (as in "I design systems") is ambiguous."I architect systems" (to someone such as yourself) would be clear, although noisome. okay?
