Would evidence for common descent look the same as separate creation by a common designer?

I don't think so. There might be commonalities of "style" from a common designer, but why would these quantitatively (as in DNA homology, for instance) track the geneologies of the creatures?  If the same designer is responsible for starfish, chimps and humans, what - in the common designer argument - predicts any closer DNA relationship between any two of them compared with the third?
