Also, check out some of the other articles on this website. Not sure I agree with everything he says, but it sure makes you think.

Yes - good stuff!

Since design is mostly problem solving, anyone can learn to design.

Since design is mostly problem solving,

This might be true! Or better said: Design is a Job …

anyone can learn to design.

… but this is entirely the wrong conclusion. I even tell you why:

Solving problems requires lots of tools. And not all of them are simple enough to learn. Whether you got it or not. Think eg. Typography! Over decades the most important designers’ tool, it’s today this “let’s use Comic Sans” discipline. But believe it or not: Good designers are able to create magic with such FONTs - amateurs not.

The years spending this audience (which is to me similar to “everyone”), people are not after solving problems - they’re preferably rising them or better said:

“Creating problems where no problems are!”

This was actually a quote from the text - url above.

And yes, it sounded quite provocative - maybe that’s why I quoted from it.

My own definition of design would be more narrow: everything done creatively which is also beautiful!

And for this kind of design I also have a lot of respect (apart from more 'technical problem solving), so often I wonder how beautiful some websites really are!
