Learn by Numbers: Eleven Lessons Taught Only in Design School: Design Observer
Good list.

"9. Design is not “problem solving.”
This conceit is a historical artifact from the mid-20th century when design adopted the science/rational speak infecting all parts of society, particularly business. Shrewdly, design recognized a change in rhetoric was necessary to appear like sober “designocrats” and not a batch of graphic beatniks. It’s a clumsy distancing from “making art,” which binary-minded designers regard as the opposite.

Though we’re way past that era, the problem-solving trope still rolls right off designers’ collective tongues. Problems are found in math, where, unlike design, there’s one solution. If you’re a reductio ad absurdum aficionado, all design is definable as problem solving. So are most pursuits. Design education offers relevant, practical, and inspiring alternatives models for design activity."
