The transcription and translation processes incorporates digital information being transferred and read, direction being given and assembly of amino acids into proteins taking place.

Can this process be classified as a sort of natural design process?

Firstly there is no "direction", mRNA doesn't speak to the ribosome telling it what to do, it's simply a function of mindless chemistry. Secondly no I don't think your classification is appropriate. Design implies a level of conscious planning (and if you remove the conscious aspect of that the usage of the word becomes far more vague: afterall you could then argue that an ocean had designed the sand on the beach) but there is no forward planing here.
