I am working on Master Pages, Themes, and Layouts that require the design tab to execute. However, the design tab is nowhere to be found. I can see it under the office button in the area where you can create a customize tool bar but it is unresponsive to my attempts to bring it out of hiding. Any suggestions?

What is it you're looking for? On the Design tab, you have the following tools:

Page Setup
Slide Orientation
Themes (gallery)
Colors
Fonts
Effects
Background Styles
Hide Background Graphics

These tools are available on the Slide Master tab in Slide Master View.

Themes and Colors, Fonts and Effects are in the middle in the Edit Theme group. The Themes is just a button with a dropdown -- it's not a stretched out gallery. Click the bottom of that button to open the gallery as a dropdown. Background Styles and Hide Background Graphics are next to that group, and Page Setup and Slide Orientation are next to the Background group.

I see now that the "master view" gives access to a different set of tabs than the "normal" view.
The normal view includes the Design tab I was referring to:

Home
Insert
Design
Animations
Slide Show
Review
View

Apparently I just needed to step back and change my point of view.
