The fifth way in his book 'Summa Theologica'.
Basically to do with how non-intelligent beings/matter cannot function towards its purpose unless its guided by an intelligent being.
His example was the archer and the arrow; the arrow being the non-intelligent being/matter and the archer being God, guiding the arrow.

My mistake, I haven't heard of a Design argument put forward by Aquinas.
