I recently came across a rather odd credit when watching the first Thor film:

Most profiles for this film list those two crew members as Creature Design.
I really can't see what qualifies those for Creature Design or any other valid credit.
Am I missing something here or why should those credits be valid?
Think different

Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end.

It's probably because of the word "Prosthetics" in the company header. The Invelos crew table lists "Prosthetic Make-Up" as one of the aliases for Make-up Effects, and if there are credits listed, that's where I would expect them.

Of course you're right that "Suit Construction Supervisor" does not remotely resemble any allowed crew credit.

I think that the credit "Suit Construction Supervisors" indicates that they made the suit, but not necessarily designed it. Hence, I think it's not a valid credit.

I agree, suit construction does not equate to creature design.
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.
The Centauri learned this lesson once.
We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

The only thing that matters here is the role is not a valid DVDP credit.
