To name a few...

(Note: Years ago, many production designers would routinely "moonlight" on production designing for directors that were friends of theirs, while officially working in a different capacity on that production. Also, the phrase "production designer" was not always the terminology used to define this responsibility. Art director and set decorator / designer, etc. were frequently used.)
