I don’t believe it is always the job of the designer to create. Sometimes problems just need someone to listen. Sometimes those problems need someone to speak on their behalf. And only when a designer is capable of listening intently to a problem, and speaking passionately about a problem, can a designer then wholly bring aide to the problem.
What’s important to me is the process. The process of providing a solve is often superior to delivering a solve. The delivery is only a byproduct of the process completion. A truly great UX creative should be able to take stakeholders on a journey which simplifies the “whys”. i.e. Why is this important, why should be solving this, why should we solve it this way, etc. During this journey they should expect deep exploration, broad understanding, a clear path to the solve and a detailed view of the solution(s). Without this I am just a designer of pretty things.
