I would have your rsync script run a couple find commands to locate all
directories and files and force their permissions to the correct settings:
find /wherever -type d | xargs chmod 755
find /wherever -type f | xargs chmod 664
with appropriate values for 'wherever' and the permission bits.
If the web designer is accessing via samba, you can do things with
smb.conf to force modes when creating directories and files.
