I used the spelling "dezign" instead of "design" many times in my website -- even in my domain name.

Is there any way to suggest that Googlebot read "dezign" word as "design" with correct spelling?

Google may see it as a typo and try to correct but other than that its trying to rank for banannas but spelling it as strawberrys – Simon Hayter Sep 10 '13 at 9:06
I agree with @bybe. It is possible to use special brand keywords (like a company name), but there's not really any way to tell Google, "Hey, this thing that looks like a misspelling is actually a proper word." I know the 'z' makes it sound cool, but it's not going to let you create a new word that only you rank for. Context matters, though. If you constantly use it the way you would use the word design, you're not going to get anywhere; however, if dezign has a very different special meaning, you might be able to get away with it. Otherwise, do what Hagen Daas did & make up a new, crazy word. – Drew Copenhaver Nov 8 '13 at 14:05
